Webnodes AS announces Webnodes Semantic Integration Server by Mike Johnston.
From the post:
Webnodes AS, a company developing a .NET based semantic content management system, today announced the release of a new product called Webnodes Semantic Integration Server.
Webnodes Semantic Integration Server is a standalone product that has two main components: A SPARQL endpoint for traditional semantic use-cases and the full-blown integration server based on the SDShare protocol. SDShare is a new protocol for allowing different software to share and consume data with each other, with minimal amount of setup.
The integration server ships with connectors out of the box for OData- and SPARQL endpoints and any ODBC compatible RDBMS. This means you can integrate many of the software systems on the market with very little work. If you want to support software not compatible with any of the available connectors, you can create custom connectors. In addition to full-blown connectors, the integration server can also push the raw data to another SPARQL endpoint (the internal data format is RDF) or a HTTP endpoint (for example Apache SOLR).
I wonder about the line:
This means you can integrate many of the software systems on the market with very little work.
I think wiring disparate systems together is a better description. To “integrate” systems implies some useful result.
Wiring systems together is a long way from the hard task of semantic mapping, which produces integration of systems.
I first saw this in a tweet by Paul Hermans.
