Answering the Unasked Questions on UDEF
The Universal Data Element Framework is a global initiative to create a common vocabulary for data semantics. Its goal is to reduce the time and cost for semantics analysis during the requirements and design-time phases.

What does this mean? Why is it there? How does it relate to other semantic and syntax interoperability standards? SBVR, RDF, OWL, OAGIS, ACORD, XBRL, HL7, EIA-386, PLCS, ISO/IEC 11179-5, ISO 15000-5, WC3-XML, XSD, X12, EDIFACT, RosettaNet, xCBL – What do they mean and where do they fit into the standards framework? What is the value of this? Will it succeed? How will it help me with my architecture problem? How do I use it? Where can I find out more?

Clive Hatton answers these questions and more about UDEF.
