OTTER PROJECT - Ontology Technology that Executes Real-time: Project Status

Thomas A. Tinsley

Abstract

Enterprise Architecture models are often overlooked or bypassed during information systems development. This usually results in complicating application integration and data sharing which can increase cost and cause problems. The OTTER project solves this problem by combining Enterprise Architecture principles, ontology reasoning, and Service Component Architecture. Together, this makes the Enterprise Architecture the foundation for component service development and execution. Protégé is used to define the layers of the Enterprise Architecture. These layers are mapped to Service Component Architecture standards to provide real-time execution of processes. Information access and service component access are both provided by OTTER using OWL data expressions. This use of OWL data expressions is an alternative to using XML web services for service access and SQL for relational database access.
