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
since 2007. As of 2009, the vast majority of Linked Data is still generated by
communities and institutions. For a successful corporate uptake, we deem it
to have a strong conceptual groundwork, providing the foundation for the
of business cases revolving around the adoption of Linked Data. We therefore
the Linked Data Value Chain, a model that conceptualizes the current Linked
sphere. The Linked Data Value Chain helps to identify and categorize potential
which have to be considered by business engineers. We demonstrate this process
a concrete case study involving the BBC.
