Data-, Information- and Knowledge Portals

Public sector bodies, governments and NPO/NGO organisations as well as enterprises are facing new challenges in the field of data management. We are providing powerful solutions based on semantic (web) and linked (open) data standards & technologies to realise web-based portals and tools for the efficient management of growing amounts of information & data by internal and external production. 

The Semantic Web Company as your partner

Linked Open data (LOD) and Open Data mechanisms are powerful mechanisms to solve problems of data-driven organisations - we hereby support you in:

  • Sustainable (Linked) Open Data Strategies: creating strategies from the organisational, cultural and technological point of view - including data publishing as well as data consumption - along the whole data value chain
  • License clearing: developing a sustainable licence- and usage-concept for your (open) data
  • Data monitoring: identifying the data in your organisation - specifying datasets that should be open based on well-founded needs analysis and usage scenarios
  • Stable infrastructure & technologies: building up future oriented, stable and performant architectures and portals / tools based on open standards and graph-based knowledge models
  • Maintenance and continuous development of data strategies: in a dynamic environment of todays' data economy and the massive growing amounts of data a continuous work on an organisations data strategy will guarantee competitive advantage.

Our services

For all types of information- and data-driven organisations (enterprises, public sector bodies, institutions with public missions, NGOs & NPOs, supranational organisations) we offer:

  • Linked open (government) data strategy & roadmap development including: data monitoring & analysis, data governance, licensing, change management, awareness building and communication
  • Linked (open) data use case development and requirements engineering: including requirements elicitation and requirements specification (of all functional and non-functional requirements)
  • Implementation of your (linked) open data roadmap: powerful ans stable meta data- and data management solutions and tools like web-based information- and data portals
  • Realisation of data tools: including design, implementation and innovative data & information visualisation
  • Community- and awareness building: including the promotion of your open data activities and creating network effects!
  • Capacity Building: establishing key players inside of your organisation (trainings, training programmes, tutorials, workshops et al)

Our activities in the area of linked open data are embedded in a international network of private, public and academic organisations, which are forwarding the essential strategic and technical developments of the topic.
