The Semantic Technology & Business series of conferences has held successful events in London, Berlin, New York City, and Washington D.C. in the last few years, but the annual one in San Francisco is the big one. We're a silver sponsor of next week's event, where we'll be looking forward to showing everyone what we've been up to and learning more about what everyone else has been doing with standards-based semantic technology.In the exposition hall, we'll be at booth 116, right by the exhibit hall entrance. In our booth, we'll be showing TopBraid Life Sciences Insight, a Logical Data Warehouse aimed at people in the Life Sciences industry, and TopBraid Enterprise Vocabulary Net, our standards-based multi-user vocabulary management solution. We'll also be happy to talk about any of our other products and projects.
We'll be giving four talks at the conference:
TopQuadrant CTO Ralph Hodgson will present A Case Study of a Deployed Reporting Hub for the Norwegian Oil and Gas Industry, describing the EPIM Reporting Hub that we developed with Franz Inc. (another perennial presence at the semtech conferences). In particular, Ralph will discuss the business benefits that resulted from using semantic technologies in the project.
Peter Lawrence, filling in for Phil Ashworth, will talk about ways to create a standards-based federated search environment in Enabling Data Integration and Discovery Using the Semantic Web.
I'll discuss approaches to Enhancing Searches with Semantic Technology—the standards, the available datasets, and the tools that can be used to improve searches.
- Peter will also give a talk titled A Logical Data Warehouse in Action, in which he demonstrates TopBraid Insight.
Stop by our booth or one of our talks to say hi and to tell us about what you've been doing with semantic technologies and what you hope to do. We love the opportunity that this conference gives us to learn the latest about what people are doing with semantic web standards.
