Nowadays, data from different real-time data streams are coming in. The classical relational database systems cannot manage such big data. Big data should be managed in a way that keeps the semantic relations between different concepts. Ontology is a powerful tool that comes from the concept of the semantic web, can formulate data schema as semantically connected objects. Ontology can be shared and reused across different domains and sites.  In this paper, an ontology that captures the main concepts and their relationships in Mosul university is proposed. The main steps for OMU (ontology for Mosul University) development are showen using protégé ontology editor. Also, several queries are implemented to show how we can use inference engine to infer new and implicit knowledge from ontologies. visualization tools are used to visualize OMU ontology.

Semantic Web is an extension to the current web. It will convert the way we use World Wide Web (WWW) by giving the machine the capability to process and infer data in web. It starts as a vision and becomes a future trend in web.
Due to the huge data that is scattered as web pages in web today, adding semantic meaning to data stored in these pages became necessary for the next age of information technology. The Semantic Web will bring structure to the meaningful content of Web pages, creating an environment where software agents roaming from page to page can readily carry out sophisticated tasks for users. Several tools and new technologies have been emerged to help bring this vision to reality.
In this paper, Semantic Web is defined and described with its layering architecture and supporting technologies and tools. An example is given to show how to use these tools to semantically representing data model. At last, challenges and difficulties faced building this web and made it an extension to the current web has been discussed.
