Abstract

The impact of building domain ontology in interorganizational contexts to facilitate knowledge management is discussed. The concept of ontology is embraced by non-IS practitioners when the focus of the ontology logical development emphasizes content, independently of programmatic formalism. Ontology development is enhanced by starting with a specific knowledge perspective, which is called as knowledge lens. From this knowledge lens, control vocabulary is extracted and, by adopting a top-down and bottom-up perspective, the conceptual model is developed by applying relationships, attributes, and axioms.
