Abstract. The notion of commitment is a principal notion in human communication in social systems. It can be also viewed as an elementary contract in which human beings enter into and comply with to achieve their business goals. However, different methodologies use slightly different paradigm to model this notion. The paper firstly analyzes the commitment usage in economic transactions in general, and then investigates the DEMO enterprise ontology (Design \& Engineering Methodology for Organizations) and Resource Event Agent (REA) ontology and their capabilities for commitment modeling. Possibilities of these modeling approaches are shown in an example of a practical application. The main asset of the paper is comparison and evaluation of these modeling approaches in the view of the commitment modeling, which is a good point for future research in ontologies cooperation.
