Does anything in the SW stack provide any more semantics than flat files, RDBMSs or inverted list structures.

In the context of legacy portfolios (collections of applications), one of the great challenges is tracking down what is the same & what is different.  Obviously just because the label is the same does not say the thingys are the same & just because the labels are different does not say they're different.

Example (as before)... how do I know that M0760 and MSTR-MENSA-FL are actually the same thing?  And just within this single file there are approximately 1,700 such labels.

Does the SW stack address that Gordian Knot?
