The BEL Framework is a platform designed to overcome many of the challenges associated with capturing, integrating, and storing knowledge within an organization, and sharing the knowledge across the organization and between business partners. Central to the design of the framework is the ability to integrate knowledge across different representational vocabularies and ontologies. This allows organizations to combine knowledge from disparate sources such as existing applications, internal sources, and business partners. It can then be made available through a standardized set of computable networks and APIs.
