Linked Data Platform

What is a Linked Data Platform?

Linked Data Platform (LDP) is a W3C standard defining a set of rules for HTTP operations on web resources in order to provide an architecture for read-write Linked Data on the web. OSLC (Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration) adapters for example support Linked Data Platform concepts. Clients can retrieve and update data on the web in a standardized way if data is made available on the Web in compliance with the W3C Linked Data Platform standard.

How can you benefit from it?

Most Web APIs do not currently share a common structure. As a result, implementations of clients communicating with different Web APIs are different, leading to additional implementation effort for organizations having to develop, and maintain many clients talking to many different Web APIs. Fortunately, Web APIs publishing data according to the W3C Linked Data Platform standard have a common structure, so that client implementations for Linked Data Platform Web (LDP) APIs can largely be reused.

Why Koneksys?

Koneksys has extensive experience in implementing OLSC adapters complying with Linked Data Platform concepts. Koneksys is a big supporter of W3C standards such as the W3C Linked Data Platform standard. We are going beyond the development of Linked Data Platform (LDP) Web APIs and are developing internally a web application called Koneksys Linked Data (KLD) to manage data from different LDP Web APIs such as different OSLC adapters. Koneksys Li nked Data (KLD) includes capabilities such as full-text search, SPARQL queries, data viewers and editors, for data originating from LDP Web APIs selected by the user. Future features will include version-management and optimized query capabilities for data originating from LDP Web APIs. Don’t hesitate to subscribe to our newsletter to stay updated!
