GRASP ("Graph for SharePoint") is the SharePoint solution to create consolidated views, reports and visualizations from heterogeneous data. These so-called information dashboards are tailored views on (multiple) data sources that present the integrated information in a way that is meaningful for business users. An ontology is used to translate non-RDF data sources into semantic data that is hosted by a RDF-store (requires additional software). The integrated data is accessed using the standardized reporting language “SPARQL”. Internal corporate data can be augmented with publicly available data sets (so called Linked Open Data), e.g. geographic information.
Smarter access to documents with "Semantic Tags"
Semantic tags are intelligent tags that contain more information than normal SharePoint metadata. For example you can associate the Semantic Tag "Project XY" with information about this project that comes from your project management system, like the project volume. This makes it possible for your users to retrieve documents based on the project volume. Documents that use semantic tags can be enriched with additional information from the semantic data contained in a RDF-store.
