The Information Workbench as a Self-Service Platform for Linked Data Applications

  1. 1. The Information Workbench as a Self-ServicePlatform for Linked Data ApplicationsCOLD Workshop @ ISWC, Nov 23, 2011Peter Haase, Michael Schmidt, Andreas Schwartefluid Operations AG
  2. 2. Linked Data Application Development is aDifficult TaskExample: Linked Data-ThonBuild an end user oriented Linked Data Application in two weeks,using ISWC metadata and other Linked Data sourcesChallenges• Discovery and automated integration of relevant data sources• Heterogeneity in various dimensions• Quality of Linked Data• End-user oriented interfaces
  3. 3. Platform for Linked Data Applications Information Workbench:  Semantics- & Linked Data-based integration of private and public data sources  Intelligent Data Access and Analytics  Visual Exploration  Semantic Search  Dashboarding and Reporting  Collaboration and knowledge management platform  Wiki-based curation & authoring of data Semantic Web Data  Collaborative workflows 3
  4. 4. E v e r y t h i n g S e l f -s e r v i c Self-Service Application Development Process 1. Provisioning of the Software Platform • Delivered through a Self-Service Portal • Hosting in public or private clouds 2. Linked Open Data Discovery • Access to data registered at global registries, e.g. ckan.org, data.gov, … • Visually explore data sets and identify those relevant for your application 3. Data Integration • Integrate the data sets with the click of your mouse • Add providers for internal and external legacy data 4. Customization of the Frontend • Semantic Wiki + Widgets as Self-service Linked Data Frontend • Declaratively customize the user interface using a selection of widgets 5. Extending the Platform with own Components • Use APIs and SDKs to implement your own widgets, providers, etc.
  5. 5. Example: ISWC 2011 Conference ExplorerData Sources: Events Topics People Publications PlacesFunctionalities: • Explore conference schedule, publications, etc. • Conference statistics • Connect online accounts, such as Twitter and Facebook • Like events, papers • Social Network Analysis
  6. 6. Information Workbench: Cloud Platform Architecture Application Layer (SaaS)Provisioning, Monitoring and Management Virtualization Layer Infrastructure Layer (IaaS) Data Layer (DaaS) Netw.-Att. Storage Network Computing Resources Enterprise Data Sources Open Data Sources
  7. 7. Information Workbench:Integration of Virtualized Data Sources as a Service Application Layer Virtualization Layer Data Layer SPARQL SPARQL SPARQL SPARQL Endpoint Endpoint Endpoint Endpoint Metadata Registry Data Source Data Source Data Source Data Source See also presentation at main conference on Wednesday: FedX: Optimization Techniques for Federated Query Processing on Linked Data
  8. 8. Information Workbench Self Service Platform• Create your own instance of the Information Workbench at the click of a button• Select from pre-defined configurations for certain application domains• Provision in private or public cloud environments (such as Amazon EC2)
  9. 9. Self Service Deployment Wizard (2) Adjust basic configuration (name, zone)
  10. 10. Self Service Deployment Wizard (3) Selection of data set(s)
  11. 11. Self Service Deployment Wizard (4) Advanced configuration
  12. 12. Semantic Wiki + Widgets as Self-serviceLinked Data Frontend• Semantic Wiki for collaborative authoring and linking of unstructured and structured semantic data• Declarative specification of the UI based on available pool of widgets and simple wiki-based syntax• Widgets have direct access to the database• Embed dynamic data, visualizations, forms, etc.• Type-based template mechanism Wiki Page in Edit Mode … … and Displayed Result Page
