IOF Products


IOF is intended for a range of uses, including in its simplest form as an English language glossary or a bank or regulator's data dictionary. In its most complex form, IOF in its native Web Ontology Language (OWL), could be used as a bank's operational ontology.


Although IOF can be seen as a "product family", it is primarily an OWL ontology. IOF OWL, both in its Production and Development versions, is available here.

IOF derived products

IOF is also available as derived products. All IOF products are generated or derived with an automated process from the IOF OWL. Thus all changes in the IDMP OWL will be reflected in all other products.
