Terminology Service

What is the OCL Terminology Service?

The OCL Terminology Service is the back-bone of the OCL Toolkit. It is an open-source solution for the management and publication of standardized and local terminologies. The OCL Terminology Service was built from the ground up to be an enterprise-ready software-as-a-service (SaaS) application that can be implemented within your own data center or deployed to a cloud provider.
