Open data is obviously socio-politically relevant and helps to reduce administrative costs. It is kind of an infrastructure which is „invisible“ for the business community

But to make it attractive for enterprises, open/external data obviously should be integrable with internal databases.

Are linked data and open semantic web standards the solution?

The critical point• Open data • is obviously socio-politically relevant • helps to reduce administrative costs • is kind of an infrastructure which is „invisible“ for the business community• But to make it attractive for enterprises • open/external data obviously should be integrated with internal databases © Semantic Web Company – http://www.semantic-web.at/ 10

  24. 24. Conclusio: Open your data - the RDF way! • 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) and enterprise search solutions • Enterprises tend to standardize ways to process information, RDF is a proper solution for that  Make use of open data principles internally and link it© Semantic Web Company – http://www.semantic-web.at/ 24
