Level:  Business/Strategic

Many large organizations, with ingrained technologies and processes, are not easily able to make a green field switch to pure semantic technology. The presentation will outline ways in which it is still possible to get a lot of value from ontologies such as FIBO, including:
  • Associating consistent business meaning with business data held in disparate forms including databases, XML schemas, data marts, big data clusters and business reports
  • Governance and collaboration around that meaning
  • Semantic alignment of information, and information flows, between different systems, organizations and with regulatory submissions
  • Meeting the needs of regulatory imperatives such as BCBS 239
