In case you missed the outstanding webinar, “Using Semantic Technology to Drive Agile Analytics” delivered earlier this week by David Read and Scott Van Buren of Blue Slate Solutions, the recording and slides are now available (and posted below). The webinar was co-produced by SemanticWeb.com and DATAVERSITY.net and runs for one hour, including a Q&A session with the audience that attended the live broadcast.
The presenters will also deliver a half-day tutorial at the upcoming Semantic Technology & Business Conference: “Integrating Data Using Semantic Technology.” Registration for the conference is now open.

About the Webinar
How do you accelerate data warehousing to meet the demands of the data-driven economy? Semantic technology provides an agile platform to bring data together, focus on data that matters and ultimately derive a target data model that can be easily extended. This webinar will present a semantically-based data federation case study and highlight the semantic components that facilitate agile data federation in the enterprise.

If you missed this excellent live webcast with Evren Sirin, CTO, Clark & Parsia, the recorded webcast is now available. You also can meet Evren in Washington DC, November 29-December 1, 2011 for SemTechBiz DC. The customer mentioned in this case study, JP Morgan Chase, will be co-presenting and discussing how they are implementing Access Control using Semantic Technologies.

If you missed last week’s excellent introduction to SPARQL by Bob DuCharme of TopQuadrant and the recently released Learning SPARQL, the recorded webcast is now available. In this presentation, Bob shows how to create and run SPARQL queries. He also talks about the role that the query language can play in application development. Lastly, he looks at the range of uses people are finding for SPARQL above and beyond querying of RDF data, such as querying relational data, defining rules to enhance data quality, and more…

There were some questions we did not get to during the hour, and Bob has been kind enough to answer these offline.

The software that runs computers is getting smarter every day. Semantic technology allows computers to understand the meaning of words —content and context— helping put users in touch with the right information at the right time.
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. Read more
DESCRIPTION: If own or manage a web site that contains information about products or services, you can add a relatively small amount of markup to existing HTML, and have semantic information that both Google and other semantic applications will be able to process. Many Web search engines, smart phone apps, and even cutting-edge applications like augmented reality search for and use this type of markup.
Adding semantic markup provides an improved display of the information in Google search results, providing an inherent SEO benefit. This is the same technology being successfully used by BestBuy, Overstock.com, and many others. Read more
RDFa makes it easy for Web publishers to expose data on the Web, but RDFa can also make it easy to develop Web data applications. Watch how easy it is to replace complex data schemas and their SQL queries with simple RDFa attributes in your HTML markup!
In this webcast, James Leigh, a lead developer (with David Wood) on the Callimachus Project, will show us how a Web developer can create semantically-enabled Web applications with a minimal knowledge of the internals of the Semantic Web and SQL. For further details, see Callimachus Project at http://www.callimachusproject.org.
