Linked Data Meets Distributed Heterogeneous Data Integration Challenge
To cope with the immense diversity and distribution of data in large organizations, Linked Data technologies offer an agile mechanism for generating semantically rich and integrated views over business resources, represented as conceptual entities. PoolParty Semantic Suite combines Linked Data standards with high performance text mining and vocabulary management, offering new ways to manage and distribute information especially in hyper-networked organizations.

"Through our partnership with OpenLink Software, we have achieved unprecedented levels of Linked Data functionality. PoolParty in combination with Virtuoso allows customers to generate integrated and semantically sound views over large datasets, even when distributed across heterogeneous IT systems," said Andreas Blumauer, CEO, Semantic Web Company. "Our collective technologies are mature and enterprise grade; our teams are comprised of renowned technology experts in their respective fields, thereby making cost-effective enterprise data integration a viable engine for enterprise-wide agility," he added.

"The addition of Semantic Web Company to the Virtuoso Integration Partners program reflects both technical and business development leadership across the entire Linked Data and Semantic Web realm," said Kingsley Idehen, President & CEO, OpenLink Software. "Enterprise customers -- in pursuit of increasingly data-driven enterprise agility -- are the big winners from the collective solution development, professional services, and business development resources unleashed by this effort," he added.
