Processing knowledge is a prominent field of research and – after the knowledge management hype a decade ago – also in business domain. We observe two main trends, although not explicitly distinguishable. First the knowledge engineering approaches focusing on machine interpretable knowledge and second the knowledge management approaches that center on human interpretable knowledge. It is proven that both approaches can be supported by models, for knowledge engineering more formalized knowledge expressions and for knowledge management also informal knowledge expressions. The Open Knowledge Model (OKM) project on Open Models aims to bring these two communities together by applying an open model-based approach for modeling knowledge. A first prototype has been developed in the project plugIT. This paper will introduce the approach, the findings and provide an outlook on OKM.
