The vision of the Open Semantic Framework (OSF) has these aims to:

  1. Target enterprises, both profit and non-profit
  2. Create a capable software and infrastructure platform sufficient to:
    1. Enable integration of unstructured (text, documents), semi-structured (markup, XML, metadata, Web pages) and structured (tables, spreadsheets, databases) information
    2. Capture this information as structured data across the enterprise, regardless of original format
    3. Leverage existing information assets without modification or disruption
    4. Harmonize semantics and meaning across natural human differences
    5. Ground data models and structures in logical and coherent bases
    6. Interoperate with Web resources that conform to open standards
    7. Be adaptable to any domain of human endeavor
    8. Support any human language
    9. Provide a sufficient baseline of knowledge management functionality, including search, business intelligence, analysis, visualization
    10. Allow export of results sets in formats usable by common external tools
    11. Facilitate the publishing of structured data and other content on the Web
    12. Use a Web-oriented design such that individual platform instances may collaborate and interact with other groups and organizations on the Web
  3. Support the platform with tools sufficient for knowledge workers to use and maintain the system on their own
  4. Formulate implementation methodologies and workflows sufficient to self-direct implementation
  5. Fully document the design, use, implementation, operation and maintenance of these capabilities
  6. Deliver all platform capabilities and documentation in open source
  7. Select and incorporate best-of-class components in all areas
  8. Encourage broader community involvement to promote these aims.
