TopQuadrant believes that the global economy and technology trends require enterprises to become more agile. With the increasing volume and diversity of data, data integration needs for enterprises are growing exponentially. At the same time, expectations about what technology should do for the knowledge workers are rapidly increasing. Traditional approaches to data access don’t adapt well to changes and are no longer sustainable. Meaningful business interactions, intelligent business capabilities and integrated Big Data depend upon enterprise information resources becoming nimble–connectable, responsive and interoperable semantic assets.
In response to these forces, TopQuadrant provides solutions necessary to enable a semantic ecosystem among people, applications and data–supporting intelligent, data-driven action while lowering the cost of ownership and access to information. Our TopBraid™ platform connects data by accessing, linking and combining internal and external data sources–faster, better, broader and in a more future-proof and flexible way than conventional data integration products. TopBraid solutions are context-aware, self-explaining and can be changed dynamically. They:
make it possible to quickly draw information from new and existing sources that contain data in any format
can capture and change the relationships between data in a way that is sharable across organizational boundaries
allow business users to determine the ‘meaning of data’ and customize and view information as needed to support their work
This new class of solutions is made possible by an inventive architecture based on the W3C1 standards for representing and
sharing business vocabularies and data over the web–including RDF/RDFS, SKOS, OWL and SPARQL.
Recognizing that adoption of emerging technologies requires innovative approaches, TopQuadrant supports change agents in
the organizations through training programs, business strategy workshops, mentoring and a wealth of knowledge resources.
