In this slide presentation, the author argues that "the need for ontologies in the real world is manifest and increasing". This talk explores some of these needs on the Web-scale in data integration, emerging technologies, and Linked Data applications. It also asks an important question – where are the features needed for these found in OWL? The talk ends with some challenges to the OWL – and greater ontology – community to help increase the use of standard ontologies on the Web.

- Knows Web Ontology Language, or OWL (2004), as a RDF vocabulary of properties and classes that extend support for expressive data modeling and automated inferencing (reasoning).
- Understands that Linked Data (2006) extended the notion of a web of documents (the Web) to a notion of a web of finer-grained data (the Linked Data cloud).
