Description:
Semantic web and linked data technologies are built around a simple data model that makes it easy to share and combine data from disparate sources across the public internet or across silos on a private intranet. SPARQL is the query language standard from the W3C (the same standards body that brought us HTML, CSS, and XML) for querying this data. A variety of free and commercial software implementations have made it easy for people to get started with SPARQL and to incorporate it into applications that take advantage of the growing availability of linked data on the web.

In today’s connected online world, to optimize a customer oriented business requires real time contextual customer knowledge across all business channels and relevant social and competitive forces. This knowledge must be used to control the intended outcome of each business transaction. In complex, heavily customer-centric businesses such as Telecommunications, Health Care, and Financial Services, the optimal business must understand how each action of the business and the individual customer relates to the profitability of the business and customer satisfaction. This is possible if systems holistically see what is going on in real time, determine the meaning of these activities, and in-stream decide and take the optimal action which maximizes profit and customer stickiness. Every business function should be coordinated and driven through a complete awareness of the business theatre. Read more

Upcoming WEBCAST: Fighting Fire with Linked Data

Amsterdam FirefightersWith everything that races through a fire team’s mind when needing to get to a fire, “how do we get there?” is a question that they need to answer — FAST.

Fire trucks operate under different rules than other vehicles (e.g. they do not have to stop for red lights), but they also have different limitations (e.g. their size). Join us for this webcast in which we will hear about how, in the city of Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Fire Teams are leveraging Semantic Technologies to improve response time.

In this webcast, Bart van Leeuwen, firefighter and co-founder of netlabs.org, joins with his colleague, Adrian Gschwend, founder of netlabs.org, to tell us about the exciting work they are doing using Semantic Technology to solve very serious “real world” problems.
