Linked Data is the future of data integration in the enterprise and beyond - we built Carbon LDP to be the vehicle that gets you there.
The concept of Linked Data can and should exist behind the firewall and beyond. Linked Data is a concept that embraces all types of data (structured and unstructured) and allows that data to be connected and related. Linked Data is represented in a graph based model (networks) versus a more rigid table model. Because graphs are networks of information and can be readily connected, they are semantic – they have the ability to be self-describing and can convey statements about what the graph data mean. In short, as relationships grow, the Linked Data structure can infer relationships to extend the knowledge of the data and therefore create a "knowledge graph".
Our perspective on Linked Data and Carbon LDP focuses on Solving problems through 3 building blocks: Creation, Integration, and Change.
