The event will begin with an introduction to semantic
standards in both regulatory and corporate landscapes.

will focus on either the finance or healthcare industry.
Attendees of the Finance Track will learn more about the OMG
Financial Industry Business Ontology (FIBO) standard while
attendees of the Healthcare Track will discuss the
application of W3C linked data standards to enable web scale
connected health. The day will then end with all attendees
joining together to summarize the results of the day in a
"The title of this session is based on the title of
the Geoffrey Moore book where his thesis is that to be
successful, products must cross the chasm from early
adopters to the mainstream of buyers," said Dennis
Wisnosky, retired DoD CTO and Chief Architect and current
Senior Consultant at the EDM Council. "Semantic
technology has been in development for nearly two decades.
Its acceptance as the standard for data exchange healthcare
certainly proves that it has crossed the chasm in that
domain. On March 26th, noted authorities in both healthcare
and finance will describe this journey and point the
direction for even more progress."
