Information Models,
Taxonomy & Ontology

By combining information modeling and taxonomy & ontology, we can provide a comprehensive understanding of a business. Information models help establish a shared reference point in an organization.

Information models play a crucial role in making sure everyone in an organization is on the same page. It helps everyone understand each other.

Taxonomy is the method of organizing and categorizing objects based on their form. Taxonomies are like a tree structure, with general ideas at the top and more specific details as you go down. The goal is to make sure each object fits into only one category. A great example of this is the way scientists classify different species of animals. By using taxonomy, they can figure out if an animal is a new species or belongs to an existing one. This same concept can be applied to products, processes, and any other type of object, as long as the taxonomy is detailed enough.

We believe that creating strong taxonomies is the key to building a reliable information model.

Ontology is different from taxonomy. While taxonomy is about defining objects, ontology talks about the relationships, context, and rules surrounding an object in a specific area. Simply put, ontology shows how an object is connected to other things. It often links different taxonomies together. For example, a person could be classified as a human (taxonomy), but they could also have many different relationships like being a mother, manager, or homeowner (ontology). However, these relationships don’t change the person’s taxonomy classification.

We create digital models of businesses for customers to see and understand their current and future situations. Our expertise is in designing solid solutions based on taxonomy and ontology. This is what we do every day.
