The term "unified ontology" refers to the idea that all the Platform organisations that make up the Platform network together maintain one single distributed Ontology of knowledge and information. An ontology is like a mind map except that it is described using open Internet standards so that the concepts are all described in a universally shareable way. All the organisations in the Platform network are aligned with the common vision and so they all inherit some default aspects to their ontology called the Foundation Ontology which is a basic system involving alignment and deployment processes.
