Why Linked Open Data needs Trusted LOD-Clouds for a Commercial Uptake

Just recently I brought in a couple of arguments why LOD has to be more specific, traceable and most of all reliable (or trusted) before it will be used by enterprises.

Obviously this is also one of the core elements for a blueprint of a sustainable business model around Open Data.

Recently I talked about this topic together with my colleague Martin Kaltenböck from Semantic Web Company and Florian Bauer of REEEP in a webinar which was about Linked Data for the Environmental Sector. We discussed several use cases in which these principles are at least partly implemented.

Linked Data for tthe Enironmental Sector

Organizations working in the environmental sector most often act as intermediates between politics, economy and citizens. They are growing out of their role as plain content providers. To service the demands of their stakeholders they have to act also as data and tool providers for their respective communities.

This video introduces several good practice examples achieving data governance in using the linked open data paradigms. Together with a basic overview of the possibilities of linked open data you get an appealing picture of the new opportunities which are provided by these principles and technologies, also for your organisation!

You can watch the video ‘Linked Data for the Environmental Sector – Use Cases and Opportunities‘ on YouTube.
