Level:  Intermediate

This talk presents best practices and lessons learned through work conducted at Nordea Bank in applying semantics, FIBO, and business architecture methods to address regulatory requirements. We will explain collateral optimization at a very high level, present an overview of the methodology and approach used in extending FIBO, and discuss how these approaches were combined to create a road map for satisfaction of the regulatory requirement.

We will also outline the development strategy with both canned and live demonstrations of several of the tools in our toolbox, demonstrating several of the more important ones to highlight what can be done today. We will discuss some of the remaining gaps and suggest strategies for working around them, particularly for navigating a large number of existing, interrelated and independent ontologies for complex domains.

Ms. Kendall has over 30 years professional experience in the design, development and deployment of enterprise-scale information management systems, emphasizing information architecture, ontology, and knowledge-based systems design. Her focus includes business and information architecture, knowledge representation strategies, and ontology development for clients in financial services, government, manufacturing, media, and travel domains. She has developed a number of best practices for marrying business architecture, conceptual modeling, and traditional software engineering with semantics to address complex information management issues. Elisa represents ontology and information architecture concerns on the Object Management Group (OMG)'s Architecture Board, is co-editor of the Ontology Definition Metamodel (ODM), and a contributor to a number of other OMG standards, including the Financial Industry Business Ontology (FIBO) effort.

Evren Sirin is co-founder and the Chief Technology Officer of Complexible Inc that develops Stardog, the leading semantic graph database. At Complexible, Evren leads research and development in the areas of semantic technologies, information management, and graph databases.
