Title: The Linked Data Value Chain: A Lightweight Model for Business Engineers

Authors: Latif, A., Hoefler, P., Stocker, A., Ussaeed, A., Wagner, C.

Abstract: Linked Data is as essential for the Semantic Web as hypertext has been
for the Web. For this reason, the W3C community project Linking Open Data has
been facilitating the transformation of publicly available, open data into Linked Data
since 2007. As of 2009, the vast majority of Linked Data is still generated by research
communities and institutions. For a successful corporate uptake, we deem it important
to have a strong conceptual groundwork, providing the foundation for the development
of business cases revolving around the adoption of Linked Data. We therefore present
the Linked Data Value Chain, a model that conceptualizes the current Linked Data
sphere. The Linked Data Value Chain helps to identify and categorize potential pitfalls
which have to be considered by business engineers. We demonstrate this process within
a concrete case study involving the BBC.

Key Words: Linked Data, Linking Open Data, Value Chain, Business Case, Business
Models
