An archilogy ontology is a representation of governance

“archilogy ontology” is a formula created by Tru Dô-Khac to labels a governance representation crafted by The Archilogy Institute, an open and creative knowledge community addressing dynamics between enterprises, ecosystems, IT and IP (intellectual properties).
Archilogie is an ancient French word [1]. It notably appears in “Archilogie Sophie” (Literally, “wisdom of the highest discourse”) as the translation of the title of a piece of work of a clerk living in the XV century, Jacques Legrand [2].
Composed by the Greek words archein , power, (Fr : pouvoir) and logos, discourse (Fr : discours), archilogy could be translated with discourse on power (Fr : “discours sur le pouvoir”), that is governance .
Ontology is one of the most difficult concept in philosophy : you might remember a lecture in college [3] on the “Ontological Proof” (Fr : Preuve Ontologique) by René Descartes, a French philosopher of the XVI century (famous for his “cogito ergo sum”, “I think therefore I am”, Fr : “je pense donc je suis”).
Composed by the Greek words ontos , being, (Fr : étant) and logos, discourse (Fr : discours), ontology could be translated with discourse on being (Fr : “discours sur l'être”) that is representing .
Applied to an entity, an archilogy is a representation (Fr: représentation) of the entity or a modelling (Fr : modélisation) of the entity.

In information systems management, modelling systems happens when ensuring interoperation between IT systems or integrating a component into a system. When the modelling follows some specific semiologic rules, computer science calls it ontology : “ “Within the context of computer science, an ontology defines a set of representational primitives with which to model a domain of knowledge or discourse. The representational primitives are typically classes (or sets), attributes (or properties), and relationships (or relations among class members)...” [4]
The Archilogy Institute, an open creative knowledge community addressing dynamics between enterprises, ecosystems, IT and IP (intellectual properties), is developing governance ontologies which are called archilogy ontologies.
A typical archilogy ontology is the eSourcing governance ontology where “eSourcing govenance” is an original IT governance approach where “IT governance” is defined with a dual definition (© Tru Dô-Khac, France) :
(1) “IT governance regime” : “a governance regime for IT” (Fr : régime de gouvernance pour l'informatique d'entreprise) .
(2) “IT governance” : “Definition, application and management of regime(s)”.
