Exploiting Linked (Open) Data via Microsoft Access Exploiting Linked (Open) Data via Microsoft Access Presentation Transcript

  • Using Microsoft Accessas a Linked (Open) Data client via Virtuoso’s ODBC Driver By Kingsley Idehen (@kidehen) Founder & CEO, OpenLink Software © 2012 OpenLink Software, All rights reserved.
  • Situation AnalysisAgility is the timeless pursuit ofenterprises and individuals alike.In all cases, access, integration, and dissemination of data is pivotal. © 2008 OpenLink Software, All rights reserved.
  • Linked Open Data (LOD) Cloud © 2010 OpenLink Software, All rights reserved.
  • Situation AnalysisData is growing exponentially along thefollowing dimensions:•Volume -- production•Velocity – dissemination fire-hoses•Variety – APIs and underlying data Models•Virtuosity – insight discovery expectations.All of this happens while the total hours in dayremains constant at 24 hours! © 2012 OpenLink Software, All rights reserved.
  • Product Value PropositionEnterprise and Individual Agilityvia Data Virtualization, withoutcompromising performance,scalability, security, orinvestments in existinginfrastructure! © 2012 OpenLink Software, All rights reserved.
  • Product ArchitectureA high-performance, scalable,secure, and operating-system-independent server designedto handle contemporarychallenges associated withdata access, data integration,and data management. © 2012 OpenLink Software, All rights reserved.
  • Data Virtualization MiddlewareAn in-built middleware layer(“Sponger”) for creatingLinked Data Views overHeterogeneous DataSources. © 2012 OpenLink Software, All rights reserved.
  • Pluggable Linked Data Cartridges/DriversA collection of prefabricatedand customizable DataExtraction, Transformation,and Lookup cartridges(drivers) covering a vastranges of data formats anddata access protocols. © 2012 OpenLink Software, All rights reserved.
  • Sophisticated Content CrawlerDBMS hosted ContentCrawler that leveragesloosely coupled binding tothe Sponger Middlewarecomponent fortransformation ofunstructured and semi-structured data into LinkedData. © 2012 OpenLink Software, All rights reserved.
  • How Do I Get Going? Download, install, and experience the power of coherent integration of disparate data sources, data access protocols, and data representation formats. In an nutshell, commence exploitation of powerful business intelligence, socially enhanced collaboration, data virtualization, and entity analytics without writing a line of code! Turn "Big Data" into exploitable "Smart Data" without compromise! © 2012 OpenLink Software, All rights reserved.
  • How Does Virtuoso Expose LOD Cloud Data To ODBC Clients? Creation of ODBC accessible SQL Views using SPASQL (SPARQL inside SQL) that targets local data Ditto via SPARQL-FED (Federated SPARQL) for external SPARQL endpoints. Example instances include:  DBpedia (Linked Data version of Wikipedia content and LOD Cloud nexus)  URIBurner Service for “on the fly” transformation of data from: LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Freebase, Disqus etc.  Live Linked Open Data LOD Cloud Cache. © 2012 OpenLink Software, All rights reserved.
