Using Rules for Quality Control in Federated Data Environments with David Schaengold, Ontology Architect – Revelytix, Inc.

Schaengold’s talk will examine some of Revelytix’s real-world experiences federating data stores in integrated environments, such as how some data can be right all of the time yet still be wrong, the types of quality control rules that should run at the enterprise level regardless of source, and why RIF-based rules engines are best suited for quality control of federated data.

About SemTechBiz DC

The Semantic Tech & Business Conference – DC is two and a half days of presentations, tutorials, panels, case studies, and conversations. With its strong focus on business and government, the program will provide you with insight on applications in enterprise IT, government, military/intelligence, healthcare, finance and publishing. The conference is designed for business and technology executives who need to learn what semantic technologies are and how to take advantage of semantics in their enterprise and web-based systems.

Organizations large and small, both private and public, can potentially benefit from semantic technologies. You’ll hear how open linked data and semantics are used by numerous civilian and defense agencies within the US Federal Government. You’ll hear how the Mayo Clinic has developed a working BPMN engine prototype that will lead to lower costs and improved time-to-market for businesses. Other case studies will discuss how semantic technology and linked open data have been integrated into cutting-edge applications for sentiment analysis, data integration, search, personalization, and mobile app development. These topics, among many more, will be covered in the three-track, executive-level program.
