[Quoted] Hi Lee

I think dedicated triple stores have a place, however, it is generally found that most organizations will persist their "SQL Stores", and indeed most of their legacy systems for years to come. Relative to the Semantic Web - they want to apply ontologies (OWL) across all of that - and use SPARQL - via a mediation layer - to perform distributed joins/unions across distributed heterogeneous data sources - i.e. leaving the legacy data in situ, and in a way that has acceptable performance. That's what my company, Semantic Discovery Systems, is developing - and indeed delivering an Early Access version of already.. Received on Sun Dec 02 2007 - 19:46:08 CET
