An ontology is a model. It can form the basis for a model driven software delivery environment. There are products now that provide semantic model driven development, there will likely be some in the exhibit hall this year. Many of these products allow or encourage an ad hoc approach to the modeling that precedes application building. In this talk we will show the benefits of starting with a rigorous model development process, and how that can flow seamlessly into a delivered application. We will show some of the key benefits that come from a application, or a suite of applications so conceived. In the course of this tutorial we will:
- Show how an enterprise ontology can be developed and extended, in a graphical editor
- Show how that ontology can be made immediately available to a inference engine to verify that mistakes were not introduced in the modeling process
- Load that model into a triple store
- Show how the model can be graphically compared to a base model or a previous version
- Import data from third party sources into the triple store, conforming to the ontology
- Show how the use cases that will make up the ontology can be built out through interactive graphic editors, and how the application can be updated in place
This tutorial will be largely hands on and interactive. All of the above points will be made live and interactive.
