Platform Automation Engineer

Our Government client are recruiting for a Platofmr and Automation Engineer to wokr on a large sclae Ontology Project.

The project:
To date we have built our Ontology through extensive engagement with our wider business, and review of our own literature. The existing toolset- Stanford University's WebProtégé online platform- is relatively good at allowing experienced users to build .owl ontology files. However, ontologies quickly become sizeable and dense as entities and relationships are added, and WebProtégé provides only limited functionality to help users visualise, filter, or explore parts of the ontology. This limits the usefulness of the ontology to the business. It makes the outputs inaccessible to non-technical users, which limits our ability to review and develop the ontology in collaboration with the wider organisation. It also limits the usefulness of the ontology for the purposes of system design, by preventing solution architectures from quickly visualising the subset of the ontology that is relevant to a particular project or solution. Finally, whilst WebProtégé is, as the name suggests, web-based, it is an academic product, placing necessary constraints on the speed of the solution, making access to the ontology somewhat clunky, and meaning that or work is dependent on the on-going funding of a project by a foreign academic institution.

Current situation:

We have made substantial investment in our data management infrastructure using the Microsoft Azure cloud. This has included development of an ontology and methodology for data architecture.
