Web 3.0 Learning Center - Now Available, Features GeoTemporal Reasoning and Social Networking Analytic Examples

19-May-2008 08:00 AM: Franz Inc. today announced the release of its new Learning Center for developers interested in creating scalable applications for the Semantic Web, (Web 3.0). The new AllegroGraph Learning Center, launched in conjunction with the release of AllegroGraph v3.0, is designed to facilitate understanding of RDF database technologies and best practices for AllegroGraph, a high-performance, persistent triple store for saving and querying billions of RDF statements in real-time. The AllegroGraph Learning Center is available at Franz's website - http://franz.com/agraph/support/learning/

AllegroGraph is the industry's first RDF database to integrate GeoTemporal Reasoning and Social Networking Analytics in a high-performance persistent database for storing and querying billions of RDF statements. AllegroGraph provides solutions for customers to address the challenge of storing and combining unstructured and structured data for new Web 3.0 style applications as well as new types of Business Intelligence for the Enterprise. AllegroGraph's "Activity Recognition" package provides a new and more powerful means for aggregating and analyzing data about individual and organizational behaviors, preferences, relationships, and spatial and temporal linkages between individuals and groups. AllegroGraph provides the core capabilities for making Web 3.0 a reality.

The AllegroGraph Learning Center contains many concise examples for working with RDF triples, Social Networking Algorithms, Geospatial and Temporal primitives, Triple Store and Server Management, Querying with SPARQL, Reasoning with RDFS++, and much more. It also makes available in a convenient place many of the popular public RDF datasets and benchmarks. The software examples all are freely downloadable and work with a freely downloadable version of AllegroGraph. "As developers begin to integrate Semantic Technologies in the Enterprise," states Franz CEO Jans Aasman, "we anticipate education and training to become a key component of successful implementations. In addition, as Universities begin to add courses in Semantic Technologies, we envision the Learning Center becoming a valuable learning supplement in education". The Learning Center is initially targeted for Java developers but in the near future Franz will be releasing similar Learning Centers for Ruby, Python and .NET developers to facilitate their use of AllegroGraph for Web 3.0 applications.

Today's leading companies realize there is incredible value stored in their data. Utilizing and monetizing this ad hoc data has become a focus of the software industry and Web 3.0. There is increasing demand for sophisticated business analytics which can handle more than just specific, predetermined information, but also immense quantities of data from multiple data sources: relational databases and unstructured data from company email, documents, spreadsheet, drawings, etc. All of this data can quickly represent a significant amount of computational memory and complexity. Experts agree that relational database technology is not designed for this and the schemas used by such databases are too rigid to allow this sort of analysis. Semantic Web technologies and RDF databases, such as AllegroGraph, provide a solution that is rapidly being adopted by Fortune 1000 Companies.


Franz Inc., (http://franz.com) is an innovative technology company with expert knowledge in developing and deploying Semantic Web solutions. AllegroGraph provides the solid storage layer for powerful geotemporal reasoning, social network analytics and ontology modeling capabilities for today's Semantic Technology applications. Franz's products and services are uniquely positioned to help bring your Web 3.0 ideas to reality.
