Understanding IDMP Ontology

What is an Ontology?

A formal representation of knowledge that defines the concepts and relationships within a particular domain, which enables the organization, management, and use of knowledge, leading to more effective and efficient decision-making and problem-solving.

Benefits of Ontologies

  • Enhanced knowledge sharing and reusability facilitate reuse across systems and applications
  • Enhanced accuracy and consistency with formal representation of concepts and relationships
  • Enhanced interoperability with shared vocabulary and conceptual framework
  • Improved search and discovery in data source queries with structured representation of knowledge
  • Facilitate automated reasoning to draw logical inferences based on relationships defined within the ontology
