How Ontologies Drive Digital Transformation

Recorded - available as on demand webcast

Ontologies are getting more attention these days as a mechanism to support content, customer experience, product information, knowledge, analytics and AI programs of all types.  They are also integral to conversational AI applications.  Kurt Cagle makes this point in a Forbes Articles, "Why 'Ontology' Will Be A Big Word In Your Company's Future."

But what are ontologies and how do they differ from things like Master Data, taxonomies and information architecture?  How are the developed and applied in a practical, tangible way?  Things that were considered academic just a few years ago are quickly making their way into mainstream enterprise technology projects and ontologies are moving from an academic abstraction to a key component of digital transformation. 

In this session, Seth Earley, author of The AI-Powered Enterprise: Harness the Power of Ontologies to Make Your Business Smarter, Faster and More Profitable explains how ontologies:

  • Can speed the time to value of technology programs
  • Improve information flows across the enterprise and act as a “knowledge scaffolding” that becomes a corporate asset of increasing value over time. 
  • Are the missing piece in many digital programs and can mean the difference between success and failure for many enterprise initiatives.

Join us for practical approaches and case examples of ontologies in action.
