This ontology provides high level definitions for business facing datatypes, including a few related properties, for use in other FIBO ontology elements. These types are primarily aliases of existing RDF datatypes, and are provided in order to be able to present datatype properties to a business audience with non technical names, for example yes or no in place of boolean and text in place of string.

This ontology provides high level definitions for business facing datatypes, including a few related properties, for use in other FIBO ontology elements. These types are primarily aliases of existing RDF datatypes, and are provided in order to be able to present datatype properties to a business audience with non technical names, for example yes or no in place of boolean and text in place of string.
The http://www.omg.org/spec/EDMC-FIBO/FND/20140501/Utilities/BusinessFacingTypes.rdf version of this ontology was modified per the issue resolutions identified in the FIBO FND 1.0 FTF report and in http://www.omg.org/spec/EDMC-FIBO/FND/1.0/AboutFND-1.0/.
The http://www.omg.org/spec/EDMC-FIBO/FND/20130801/Utilities/BusinessFacingTypes.rdf version of this ontology was revised to add the datatype properties hasPercentageValue and hasNumericValue in support of the IND RFC.
The http://www.omg.org/spec/FIBO/Foundations/20130601/Utilities/BusinessFacingTypes.owl version of the ontology was revised in advance of the September 2013 New Brunswick, NJ meeting, as follows:
(1) to use slash style URI/IRIss (also called 303 URIs, vs. hash style) as required to support server side processing
(2) to use version-independent IRIs for all definitions internally as opposed to version-specific IRIs
(3) to change the file suffix from .owl to .rdf to increase usability in RDF tools
(4) to use 4-level abbreviations and corresponding namespace prefixes for all FIBO ontologies, reflecting a family/specification/module/ontology structure
(5) to incorporate changes to the specification metadata to support documentation at the family, specification, module, and ontology level, similar to the abbreviations
(6) to change the ontology name from BusinessTypes to BusinessFacingTypes
(7) to add a number of missing definitions, as well as the term, basis points.

A uniform resource identifier (URI) is a string of characters used to identify a name or a web resource.
Such identification enables interaction with representations of the web resource over a network (typically the World Wide Web) using specific protocols. Schemes specifying a concrete syntax and associated protocols define each URI.
This is used in some cases to identify publicly defined schemes (namespaces) for sets of identifiers or other publicly defined codes.

A basis point is a unit equal to one hundredth of a percentage point, or one part per ten thousand, 1/10000.
Basis points are used as a convenient unit of measurement in contexts where percentage differences of less than 1% are discussed. The most common example is interest rates, where differences in interest rates of less than 1% per year are usually meaningful to talk about. For example, a difference of 0.10 percentage points is equivalent to a change of 10 basis points (e.g., a 4.67% rate increases by 10 basis points to 4.77%). In other words, an increase of 100 basis points means a rise of 1%.

A number is a mathematical object used to count, label, and measure.
In mathematics, the definition of number has been extended over the years to include such numbers as 0, negative numbers, rational numbers, irrational numbers, and complex numbers.
Where there are specific business reasons or business knowledge defining numbers with known limits such as maximum values, positive-only and so on, specific types will be defined accordingly.

the value of a percentage expressed as a number or ratio as a fraction of 100
A type defining a percentage specified as decimal from 0 to 1. A percentage of 5% would be represented as 0.05. The maximum value is 100%, i.e., 1.
This meaning for 'text' is as opposed to formatted text and to binary files in which some portions must be interpreted as binary objects (encoded integers, real numbers, images, etc.).
The encoding has traditionally been either ASCII, one of its many derivatives such as ISO/IEC 646 etc., or sometimes EBCDIC. Unicode-based encodings such as UTF-8 and UTF-16 are gradually replacing the older ASCII derivatives limited to 7 or 8 bit codes.
Where there is a business requirement or business knowledge about restrictions to a piece of text, such as lengths or the specific inclusion or exclusion of line breaks, these should be added as more specialised types of this Type.
