The Financial Industry Business Ontology (FIBO) initiative is a collaborative effort engaging participants from the financial industry, the regulatory community, academic institutions and semantic technology vendors to model and build a set of open standard ontologies that will deliver transformational benefits to the financial system. The Enterprise Data Management Council (EDMC) and the Object Management Group (OMG) are partnering to lead this effort. Following the 2008 global financial crisis it became clear that the absence of certain data standards led to a lack of awareness of the magnitude of risk that the industry was exposed to. The goal of FIBO is to introduce semantic capabilities that will better enable: common terminology for business entities, financial contracts and instruments, improve data transparency, improve data integration and linkage, and improve financial reporting and analytics, so that greater "data" quality and health can be introduced into the financial system. This presentation will provide:
• a briefing on the mission and key objectives of FIBO
• a description of some of the critical financial use cases that can be fulfilled by FIBO
• a review of the first set of standards targeted for publication
• an introduction to the Business Entities conceptual ontology
• a live demonstration of the FIBO operational ontologies for Business Entities and Interest Rate Derivatives that will include an overview of the FIBO RDF/OWL ontologies, as well as execution of SPARQL queries that can be used for financial risk analysis
