Master data are derived from every data column (in case of Physical Models) and do maintain PK FK constraints and relationships and tables are generally entities.
Ontology also deals with relationships but not as RDBMS only, these can be rich predicates and hence should enhance MDM if Ontologies are used these would in many cases would show more light on entities and also types of relations and also can relate to affinities.
Terms and vocabularies have to drive ontologies and semantic meanings are important.
These are more constrained in MDM as only database or Data - warehouse related items enter.
There is need to map Business entities and processes ultimately to MDM. We see SBVR, FIBO, GO etc. as such ontology attempts going beyond MDM but MDM is great for controlling Dictionaries in enterprises and can enforce naming and limited meanings from databases.
Hope we can continue on this thread as others have dealt with both in more depth than I have.
