The heart of any system is data. Everything in a enterprise is data - from the employee number of a new hire, to the material number used to produce a final product, to the account where you will receive your salary. Data is everywhere and is essential for a business to function. Data is information that has been transformed to be understood and processed by computers. Throughout the years the way in which we translate information as data has evolved, thus leading us to a new standard called Linked data. Linked data allows you to build data models that are flexible and capable of adapting to changes on real life information. It does not follow rigid table structures, instead it is able to treat data as independent elements that can be related to each other. This is accomplished using the Resource Description Framework (RDF) which allows for better translation of human information to data used by computers, while also providing context for the data.
Our Solution - Carbon LDP
Carbon LDP is a linked data platform for building web apps that manage and link data within your enterprise and across the WWW. https://carbonldp.com Imagine an enterprise of linked data – complete, integrated access to all data across your organization. The attributes within documents (like names, dates, product descriptions, part numbers) can be queried, analyzed, and related computationally. Data can be shared and reused across application, enterprise and community boundaries, using traditional HTTP operations – making managing data as easy as managing content.
