The goal of the paper is to analyse the relevance of the proposed transformation from SBVR business vocabularies and business rules to the corresponding OWL 2 ontologies. The transformation was aimed to be model driven, lossless and reversible; covering transformable SBVR concepts and as much as possible OWL 2 concepts, especially those that are important for inference; supporting the consistency and normalization of resulting ontologies. The paper presents the detailed comparison of the proposed solution with the most advanced, to our knowledge, related works and experimental investigation of the implemented transformation prototype with nine SBVR business vocabularies and business rule sets with regards to defined desirable criteria.
