Today's database systems are not talking with each other in one language, in one industry, and not even in one company, which brings confusions, misunderstandings and bad quality of data. While generic data models define the grammar of a new language and tell us where we find nouns, verbs and adjectives, the language will not be of any use without any vocabularies.

This presentation will:

  1. Describe problems of data definitions in database systems
  2. Introduce a concept of generic data models
  3. Show how the generic data model defines a language
  4. Show how the data model is expressed in Object Oriented paradigm
  5. Show how we inject words and definitions into the generic data model
  6. Introduce efforts and trials in Oil & Gas industry to unify the language to uniquely describe equipment and instruments (ISO 10303 and 15926)
