Exploring TopBraid Enterprise Vocabulary Net: Semantic standards-based solution for enterprise vocabulary management
March 3, 2011
Enterprise Vocabulary Net™ (EVN) is an out-of-the-box
web-based solution for collaborative development and management
of interconnected controlled vocabularies, thesauri, taxonomies
and metadata. It creates a Linked Web of enterprise vocabularies
and makes it possible to reach out to external sources like
the Linked Data cloud. This webinar explores and demonstrates
many of the key features of EVN.
Suite Solution Case Study -
Demo of the Netherlands Ministry of Justice Metadata Workbench
May 13, 2010
The Netherlands Ministry of Justice (MoJ)
Metadata Workbench is a new approach to the design of XML
messages and generation of XML Schemas based on the UN/CEFACT
Core Component Technical Specification (CCTS). This approach
makes it possible to collaboratively design messages for data
exchanges within and between organizations that are specific to
the local context while remaining compliant with industry and
The MoJ solution is a semantic, model-driven solution built on
the TopBraid Suite platform. The webinar discusses how
Semantic Web standards were key to the capabilities, flexibility
and reuse provided by this data exchange solution. We demonstrate the solution,
explore the solution requirements and architecture and the use
of the key capabilities of
SPARQLMotion and the TopBraid Live SDK.
Building Dynamic Business Applications with SPARQL and other Semantic Web Capabilities
The series featured the following three webinars:
Using SPARQL for Dynamic Business Applications
March 11, 2009, 2pm ET
The semantic web query language SPARQL is a powerful tool for exploring, finding, processing and managing data within semantic models and applications. Learn from the industry experts as they show how SPARQL can be used to deliver these capabilities to business users. Experience not only the basics of SPARQL but also the key advanced features necessary for building applications, including:
- SPARQL functions that extend its scope to support common operations.
- A visual query editor that allows business users to construct SPARQL queries without mastering its intricate syntax.
- SPARQLMotion – a visual scripting language for creating data processing chains that execute data imports/exports, processing of user input, queries, inferences, JSPs, and so on.
SPARQL for Business Rules and Constraint Checking: Introducing SPIN
April 1, 2009, 2pm ET.
Semantic Web modeling languages like OWL offer a standard way to define domain concepts and their relationships. This alone, however, can't fully address the need for describing executable behavior. Using the domain models for data validation, transformation and other application specific reasoning typically requires expressivity of rule languages. In this webinar we show how to use SPARQL to define efficient business rules and constraint checks that will work with any RDF database.
- Demonstrates the use of SPARQL and SPIN for tasks such as unit conversion, computer games, and executable domain-specific languages.
- Discusses the advantages of combining best practices from the object oriented world with the flexibility of the Semantic Web languages.
- Shows how to define new SPARQL functions and reusable query templates

Rapid Assembly of Semantic Business Applications
May 20, 2009, 2pm ET
In today's global, online economy, enterprises must become more agile in order to survive. Business policies and requirements are constantly changing to keep up with new opportunities, government regulations, technology capabilities and competitor offerings. Meanwhile, budgets and timelines are getting tighter. All of these trends make the traditional way of developing applications far too inefficient for today's business needs. Solutions based on the Semantic Web standards offer flexibility and responsiveness to change.
This Webinar shows how dynamic semantic business applications can be assembled faster than traditional approaches, by demonstrating how to:
- Quickly create a deployable application based on Semantic Web data models
- Incorporate new data sources without incurring a costly impact on existing data structures
- Support new business requirements by evolving the business application without disrupting application logic
