Financial Regulation Data Model

The Financial Industry Business Data Model (FIB-DM) is the largest enterprise model for Banking and Investment Services. The 3.040-entity conceptual/logical data model is a complete transformation of FIBO. The Financial Regulation Ontology is a bridge and reference model to relational data sources and targets. This example shows the Government Entities Package.


The FIB-DM website has more package diagrams here.
