Free Webinar: Never Write SPARQL Again - Build your Queries Visually

Jans Aasman10:00 AM Pacific, Thursday, October 14th

The free-form nature of triple-stores offers a lot of flexibility for constructing databases, but that freedom can also make it less obvious how to find arbitrary data for retrieval, error-checking, or general browsing. Gruff is a freely available graphical triple-store browser that attempts to make data retrieval more pleasant and powerful with a variety of tools for laying out cyclical graphs, displaying tables of properties, managing queries, and building queries as visual diagrams.

This webinar will cover Gruff's new Graphical Query View in detail.

Survey on Semantic Web Technology Adoption in the Enterprise
 
University of MarylandFrom: John Hebeler
PhD. Candidate
University of Maryland

Dear Colleague,

Please accept my invitation to participate in a formal survey on Semantic Web Technology Adoption in the Enterprise, sponsored by the University of Maryland. By taking the survey you will instantly be able to see how your answers stack up against those from other respondents.  Furthermore, the survey will be backed by a formal paper supported by technology adoption models. This paper will be available with all results in November.

I thank you in advance for taking 10 minutes to complete the survey. Your responses will help to provide a snapshot of current enterprise semantic adoption, as well as guide future research and technical development work in the field. Links for both the survey and paper are available on the last page of the survey.

Please start here
