Presentation in workshop at the 2nd B2B Software Days (11.04.2013, Vienna), together with Herbert Beilschmidt (Oracle Austria):
The Open Semantic Enterprise.Enterprise Data meets Web Data.
The technologies of the “Web od Data” have reached a degree of maturity and acceptance allowing the productive use in enterprises for the support of their business processes. Though the focus is currently on the adoption and use of Open (Linked) Data, the underlying principles can also be applied to the closed data sources and proprietary data structures usually available in enterprises.
The workshop outlines the conceptual and architectural approaches to open enterprise data sources and interweave them with the Web of Data. It shows concrete application scenarios of an open source “semantic toolset” that can be integrated with enterprise information and content management systems to open data silos, establish a layer of adaptive integrated views of the enterprise information and support decision processes thus paving the way to an “open semantic enterprise”.
The topical semantic toolset for enterprise content integration includes Apache Stanbol (knowledge extraction), Apache Marmotta (Linked Data Platform), the Linked Media Framework (networked knowledge) und VIE (interactive knowledge).
State-of-the-art big data platforms need to process massive quantities of data in batch and in parallel - filtering, transforming and sorting it before loading it into an enterprise data warehouse. In order to realize an Open Semantic Enterprise, a big data platform has to be optimized for acquiring, organizing, and loading unstructured data. Technological approaches such as NoSQL databases and connectors for Apache Hadoop complement big data solutions for the open world of a semantic enterprise.
