Introduction to Linked Data

April 21, 2010 – 11:00am12:00pm

Linked Data (or Linked Open Data) is an emerging set of concepts and technologies for combining and integrating data. Originating on the World Wide Web, the simplicity and scalability of Linked Data is now bringing the concept into enterprise data architectures as well. As enterprise data is growing at a much faster rate than traditional technologies can cope, some different approach to large-scale information management is warranted. The World Wide Web is the only information system we know that scales to the degree that it does and is robust to both changes and failure of components.
At the 2010 SemTech Conference in June, David Wood will present a half-day tutorial on Linked Enterprise Data with his colleague Bernadette Hyland.
