EDM Council - Specifications


The EDM Council is publishing FIBO quarterly on https://spec.edmcouncil.org/fibo. This includes 300 Plus files that are all of the 30 Financial Industry Domain/subdomain ontologies that have been being developed for many years. The FIBO Primer provides a layman's version of what is FIBO and how to use its content.

Much of these 30 Domains will serve as raw content to be further expanded and refined by Subject Matter Experts using the FIBO Build-Test-Deploy-Maintain Methodology in a continuous development process goverened by automation including the Council developed open source RDF ToolKit, GitHub, Jenkins, SourceTree and a number of Wiki's for collaboration.

Of immediate importance, within these 30 Domains and Subdomains are 8 Domains that have been vetted by SMEs, and have passed standard industry Hygiene tests for Web Ontology Language (OWL) content.

In addition to content, https://spec.edmcouncil.org/fibo will contain a FIBO Navigator. This will enable both casual and expert users to pick and choose FIBO content and how they want to visualize and use that content. spec.edmcouncil.org/fibo and the FIBO Navigator are works in process.
