Data Model vs Ontology Development – a FIBO perspective

About the talk


In this lightning talk Mike Bennett will draw upon the experience of creating the Financial industry Business Ontology (FIBO), to set out how ontologies and data models compare, what it takes to create a business ontology as a common language, and how this is realized in practical applications that use inferencing capabilities.


FIBO was conceived by the EDM Council
