LinkedData Planet provides insights into those technologies that enable us to:
- connect data contained in silos within organizations in a meaningful way
- extract and correlate data from web sites and databases for purposes such as analyzing trends and decision support, customer and vendor relationship management, and social networking.
The concept of linked data is gaining mindshare with developers, users and the more than 200 software companies developing semantic tools. Come join the system architects, enterprise architects, web site designers, software developers, consultants and technical managers, all looking to learn more about linking the growing collection of available data sources and technologies to get more value from their data for their organizations.
