Protege for Ontologies

Brought to my attention again. Stanford's Protege.  I recall we were shown a very early version of this when we explored ontology methods for the enterpise in the 90s.    " ... A free, open-source ontology editor and framework for building intelligent systems ... Protégé is supported by a strong community of academic, government, and corporate users, who use Protégé to build knowledge-based solutions in areas as diverse as biomedicine, e-commerce, and organizational modeling. ... " 

Recall that " ... an ontology is a formal naming and definition of the types, properties, and interrelationships of the entities that really or fundamentally exist for a particular domain of discourse. ... ".  It is important for reasoning about things in a particular domain.  Our goal was to develop one to effectively store and leverage intelligence about what happens in a large enterprise.  It is also useful for thinking about how business intelligence, visualization and analytics methods are to be delivered.
