An outlook into the world of data centric business, technologies and
innovations: Data is everywhere these days and efficient data management
is THE key factor for success in nearly all industries in the meantime.
McKinsey lists data as a key factor for production alongside with labor
and capital in one of their recent reports. Furthermore, Data is
produced in huge amounts by sensors, social networks or mobile devices
and the amounts of data available worldwide grow exponentially…

are adopted by large academic communities, while corporate vendors adopt
semantic technologies to organize, expose, exchange and retrieve their
datasets as Linked Data.
