Object Management Group (OMG)

Created on Jan 14th, 2021

The Object Management Group® (OMG®) is an international, open membership, not-for-profit technology standards consortium, founded in 1989. OMG standards are driven by vendors, end-users, academic institutions and government agencies. OMG Task Forces develop enterprise integration standards for a wide range of technologies and an even wider range of industries. OMG’s modeling standards, including the Unified Modeling Language® (UML®) and Model Driven Architecture® (MDA®), enable powerful visual design, execution and maintenance of software and other processes. OMG also hosts organizations such as the Consortium for Information & Software Quality™ (CISQ™), the DDS Foundation and BPM+ Health. In addition, OMG manages the Industrial Internet Consortium® (IIC™), the Industry IoT Consortium® and Digital Twin Consortium™ (DTC). Homepage: https://www.omg.org


This ontology provides a set of basic metadata annotations for use in describing Object Management Group (OMG) specifications, standards, and documents. It was recommended for use by the OMG Architecture Board (AB) in OMG standard ontologies, vocabularies and other models at the March 2013 Reston meeting.

The annotations defined herein extend properties defined in the Dublin Core Metadata Terms Vocabulary and in the W3C Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS) Vocabulary, and have been customized to support the OMG specification development process. Note that any of the original properties provided in Dublin Core and SKOS can be used in addition to the terms provided herein. However, any Dublin Core terms that are not explicitly defined as OWL annotation properties below must be so declared in the ontologies that use them.
