More on Ontology Engineering in the Enterprise

by Paul Wilton, 14 August 2012

In a previous blog post I discussed ontology engineering with respect to enterprise technical architecture and the use of well understood design patterns in aligning semantic technologies with the traditional. One of the common questions I hear in the semantic technology communities is why continue to create new ontologies and not re-use public domain ontologies and upper ontologies to model most domains. I will attempt to answer this, again from a practical and enterprise technical architecture viewpoint.
