Ontologies for the Web
Leveraging Ontologies: The Intersection of Data Integration and Business Intelligence, Part 2 "The real significance of ontologies - leveraging the reusable aspects - is within vertical domains where the use of common meta data, services and processes has the most worth. Once we get semantics under control within vertical systems (more often, a collection of systems), data integration, or linking a common set of semantics to back-end systems, won't be as daunting as this process is today. What's more, the application of standards such as Semantic Web and OWL will make ontologies that much more attractive."
