Ontology Tools Survey, Revisited

Michael Denny - Ontology Tools Survey, Revisited:

"Reference to taxonomies and ontologies by vendors of mainstream enterprise-application-integration (EAI) solutions are becoming commonplace. Popularly tagged as semantic integration, vendors like Verity, Modulant, Unicorn, Semagix, and many more are offering platforms to interchange information among mutually heterogeneous resources including legacy databases, semi-structured repositories, industry-standard directories and vocabularies like ebXML, and streams of unstructured content as text and media. Ontologies, for example, are being used to guide the extraction of semantic content from collections of plain-text documents describing medical research, consumer products, and business topics."
