  • 5. Agenda
    • Open Data – Clash of Cultures?
    • Typical questions about Open Data in Business environments
    • Why Linked Open Data is relevant for business people?
    • Examples of Linked Open Data Applications
    • Conclusio
  • 6. Open Data? What business people really hear. © Semantic Web Company – http://www.semantic-web.at/ Open Data! Why should we use Open Data? Isn´t open data just more data? Don´t we have enough data yet? Why should we open our data?
  • 7. Open? Sorry, we are closed! © Semantic Web Company – http://www.semantic-web.at/ On some days I´d like to jump!
  • 8. Clash of cultures © Semantic Web Company – http://www.semantic-web.at/
  • 9. Toilet finders are really cool – but how to make money with it? © Semantic Web Company – http://www.semantic-web.at/ http://beta.findtoilet.dk/ http://data.wien.gv.at/ ?
  • 10. The critical point (1)
    • Open data is
      • obviously socio-politically relevant and it is also quite clear
      • how to reduce administrative costs
    © Semantic Web Company – http://www.semantic-web.at/
  • 11. Example: Reduce administrative costs
    • “ In California visitors to the State’s spending transparency website report unnecessary spending to the government and, after only a few months of operation, the website had already saved the state over $20 million .”
    • From: United Nations e-Government Summary 2010

  • 12. The critical point (2)
    • „ Open data“ is not
      • meant to be used for traditional business talk
      • enterprises are willing to pay (a lot of) money for the generation or consumption of high-quality data
    • but „Open data“ can/could trigger new businesses built around new eco-systems
    © Semantic Web Company – http://www.semantic-web.at/
  • 13. Even „hard facts“ won´t help © Semantic Web Company – http://www.semantic-web.at/
  • 14. Three ways to make use of open data in Enterprises © Semantic Web Company – http://www.semantic-web.at/
    • Use open data from the web
    • Publish open data on the web
    • Make use of open data principles internally
  • 15. Typical questions about Open Data in business environments Is the data published under a well known license? Is it stable? Can we trust the author? Is the source reliable? Can we process the data in our intranet? Is it in the cloud? Is the data up-to-date? What is the economic value of using open data for us? Can we get the data in a format/standard which we can process? Are we allowed to mash the data with ours, can we afford the costs to that? Does data quality correspond to our criteria?
  • 16. Legal issues, to begin with Are we allowed to mash the data with ours? © Semantic Web Company – http://www.semantic-web.at/ Is the data published under a well known license? Is it stable?
  • 17. Hyperdata = Linked Data = Interoperable Data
    • Web of Data  Hyperdata
    • Data on the Web (Open Data)
    • Web of Documents  Hypertext
    • Documents on the Web

  • 18. Open Data can be linked!!! © Semantic Web Company – http://www.semantic-web.at/ Can we trust the author? Is the source reliable? Can we get the data in a format/standard which we can process? Why should data be linked ?
  • 19. Recent Survey Results (June 2011) © Semantic Web Company – http://www.semantic-web.at/ Do you think enterprises and other organizations can significantly benefit from using Linked Data? Total: 158 people, online survey conducted by SWC Between April and May 2011 - http://bit.ly/jfIVyY
  • 20. Open Data? There are still „other“ urgent questions around © Semantic Web Company – http://www.semantic-web.at/ How will customers find and understand our offers better? How to improve communication between our stakeholders? How can employees find relevant information efficiently? How to integrate data? How to extract information from data? How to publish (interoperable) data on the web? Product Management/Marketing „ Semantic Search“ Organisation Development „ Collaboration“ Information Management „ Mashups“ IT-Management „ Interoperability“ Content Management „ Annotation“ Media & Administration „ Network effects“
  • 21. Two perspectives on data standards & linked data © Semantic Web Company – http://www.semantic-web.at/ There are reasons for technicians as well as for end-users to use linked data based on standards
  • 22. For technicians: Why Linked Data? (1) © Semantic Web Company – http://www.semantic-web.at/ Data integration realised on application level
  • 23. For technicians: Why Linked Data? (2) © Semantic Web Company – http://www.semantic-web.at/ Integration on data level Application

  • 25. For end-users: Why Linked Data?
    • In case you´re looking for a pizzeria in your neighbourhood
    • In case you want to know more about Einstein

  • 26. Better support for knowledge workers, decision makers & researchers © Semantic Web Company – http://www.semantic-web.at/ What is the economic value of using open data for us?
    • Select all proteins that are linked to a curated interaction from the literature and to inflammatory response
    • Select all proteins that are linked to a curated molecular interaction, to inflammatory response and to a target of existing drug
    • Select drugs related to asthma that are linked to a curated molecular interaction in the literature where the protein is known to cause inflammatory response
    • Select all located in Y-chromosome human genes
    • Select all located in Y-chromosome, human genes with known molecular interactions, which are analysed with 'Transfection’
    • Documents, which describe relation between white blood cells, respiration disorders and tobacco smoke
    • What are the exclusion criteria for studies that use as intervention drug treating respiratory diseases?
    • Is there provenance for causal relations between COX-1, COX2, eicosanoids and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)?

  • 36. Conclusio: Open your data - the RDF way! © Semantic Web Company – http://www.semantic-web.at/
    • Enterprises seek for solutions which can digest data from the web AND from the intranet to mash them
    • Linked open data can help to extend existing Business Intelligence (BI) solutions
    • Enterprises tend to standardize ways to process information, RDF could be a proper solution for that
    •  Make use of open data principles internally and link it
