An Overview of SHACL: A New W3C Standard for Data Validation and Modeling
In these webinar recordings, We demonstrate key aspects of the SHACL constraint language and how SHACL can support enterprise applications by showing ways that it is currently being used within our agile data governance solution, TopBraid Enterprise Data Governance. These include validating data entered by users, and dynamically generating forms.
SHACL (SHAPES Constraint Language) is a powerful, recently released W3C standard for data modeling, ontology design, data validation, inferencing and data transformation. SHACL is based on RDF and SPARQL. The design of SHACL is heavily inspired by SPIN (which originated from TopQuadrant) and IBM’s Resource Shapes and therefore inherits a wealth of practical experience, solving real-world problems and “getting the job done”
