Shared Semantics

Workstream Summary

There are broadly two sets of activities under the banner of “Shared Semantics”:

  • The technical treatments for the Shared Semantics framework in the Global Terms sections of FIBO (technical OMG work)
  • Individual streams of semantic alignment activities among business specialists.

The notes and working on this page relate mainly to the first of the above. Shared semantics in the broader sense is therefore filed separately from the start page.

Goals of this Track

  • Goal: Identification and evaluation of shared semantic models to avoid duplication of efforts and eliminate ambiguity
  • Success Criteria: When all non-financial instrument/entity terms are traceable to a term owned by an industry/academic body and traceable to a relevant URI
  • Current Status: Starting on Proof of Concepts for Address, then accounting (REA, XBRL)
  • Participant Profile: Domain experts with experience in semantics

Team Leads:

  • Mike Bennett
