2 Copyright © Open Applications Group, Inc. All rights reserved 2 © Copyright 2009 Open Applications Group Introduction I am not an expert in Ontology I build standards We can always improve standards So my context is how to use Ontology technology to do this We have tried some research in past in partnership with NIST I will discuss some plans moving forward

It was formed to promote interoperability among business software applications and to create or endorse one or more standards for easier business software interoperability. The primary technical standard produced by OAGi is OAGIS, the OAG Integration Standard. Open Applications Group Who we are

All rights reserved 5 © Copyright 2009 Open Applications Group Definition 1 of Ontology A common vocabulary for describing the concepts that exist in an area of knowledge and the relationships that exist between them. An ontology allows for a more detailed specification of the relationships in a domain than is the case with a thesaurus or taxonomy.... plc.fis.utoronto.ca/tgdemo/Glossary.as p plc.fis.utoronto.ca/tgdemo/Glossary.as p
