Linked Data: An Introduction | New Tech Post | digitalassetman | Scoop.it

I keep hearing the term Linked Data, but what does it mean?

More or less what it says. All the data on the Internet linked together.

 

And that is important to me because…?

Your company, like everyone else’s company has a number of separate processes going. Accounts, marketing, HR, government compliances, legal issues, transport considerations. The information that pertains to each process is stored for convenience in separate databases. These databases are associated with the various applications that are used to create them. SAP for accounts, various spreadsheet formats, and document pages.
