One of the great challenges the information society faces is dealing with the huge amount of information generated and handled daily on the Internet. Today, progress in Big data proposals attempts to solve this problem, but there are certain limitations to information search and retrieval due basically to the large volumes handled the heterogeneity of the information, and its dispersion among a multitude of sources. In this article, a formal framework is defined to facilitate the design and

Nevertheless, this framework can be applied to other information systems that work with Big data, because it does not depend on the type of data and can be utilized in other domains. The framework is based on an ontological web-trading model (OntoTrader), which follows model-driven engineering and ontology-driven engineering guidelines to separate the system architecture from its implementation. The proposal is accompanied by a case study, SOLERES-KRS, an environmental knowledge representation system designed and developed using software agents and multi-agent systems.
