IBM Integrated Ontology Development Toolkit (formerly named IBM Semantics
Toolkit) is designed for storage, manipulation, query, and inference of
ontologies and corresponding instances. A major purpose is to establish an
end-to-end ontology engineering environment tightly integrated with dominant
Meta-Object Facility (MOF)-based modeling and application development tools. As
such, it provides a platform for managing RDF metadata and reduces the amount of
programming required for the development of metadata-intensive applications.
The IBM Integrated Ontology Development Toolkit is a visual ontology management tool designed as a set of loosely-coupled cooperative Eclipse plug-ins. It provides a Linux and Java platform containing three main components (Orient, EODM, and RStar) for managing RDF metadata and reduces the amount of programming required for the development of metadata-intensive applications.
IBMs new semantic technology enables companies to make better use of their information by enabling software to be more intelligent, adaptive, and efficient. It consists of three major areas; Ontology Specification Languages, Ontology Management Systems and Ontology Query Languages. The following semantic technologies are from IBM research labs from around the world:
