Ontology matching establishes correspondences between entities of related ontologies, with applications ranging from enabling semantic interoperability to supporting ontology and knowledge graph development. Its demand within the Semantic Web community is on the rise, as the popularity of knowledge graph supporting information systems or artificial intelligence applications continues to increase. In this article, we showcase AgreementMakerLight (AML), an ontology matching system in continuous development since 2013, with demonstrated performance over nine editions of the Ontology Alignment Evaluation Initiative (OAEI), and a history of real-world applications across a variety of domains. We overview AML's architecture and algorithms, its user interfaces and functionalities, its performance, and its impact. AML has participated in more OAEI tracks since 2013 than any other matching system, has a median rank by F-measure between 1 and 2 across all tracks in every year since 2014, and a rank by run time between 3 and 4. Thus, it offers a combination of range, quality and efficiency that few matching systems can rival. Moreover, AML's impact can be gauged by the 263 (non-self) publications that cite one or more of its papers, among which we count 34 real-world applications.
