I discovered this list while searching for OWL ontology
tools and repositories. My interest in business ontologies goes back to
the early 80’s and my roles in U.S. Army management analysis and resource
management. My approach to identifying and satisfying enterprise
management, enterprise architecture, security architecture,
resource/requirements management, and general organizational capability needs is
documented at http://one-world-is.com/beam.
I’ve used and evolved this approach since around 1977,
although I only began to document it around 1983. My learning in this
area came via functional process improvement efforts, developing functional vocabularies
and common definitions, exploring general semantics/meaning/perception, which led
in turn to taxonomies, concept maps, semantic networks, data modeling, process
modeling, ontology modeling and knowledge-base development by the late 80’s.
My approach is getting a bit of interest from U.S. Government
and government contractors for use as a methodology for developing and
maintaining enterprise architectures and security architectures.
