About the Webinar
Linked Data Platform (LDP), the latest W3C standard for Linked Data, brings REST to Linked Data. LDP defines a standard way to access, create, and update RDF resources over HTTP. With this new capability, businesses can use Linked Data for data integration in read/write mode.
This webinar will introduce you to this new standard, explaining what’s in it and how it fits with other standards like SPARQL. You will have a basic understanding of what you can expect to be able to do with this new technology so you can plan on how to best leverage it in your future business applications.
