The Linked Data Value Chain: A Lightweight Model for Business Engineers

Abstract: Linked Data is as essential for the Semantic Web as hypertext has been for the Web. For this reason, the W3C community project Linking Open Data has been facilitating the transformation of publicly available, open data into Linked Data since 2007. As of 2009, the vast majority of Linked Data is still generated by esearch communities and institutions. For a successful corporate uptake, we deem it important to have a strong conceptual groundwork, providing the foundation for the development of business cases revolving around the adoption of Linked Data. We therefore present the Linked Data Value Chain, a model that conceptualizes the current Linked Data sphere. The Linked Data Value Chain helps to identify and categorize potential pitfalls which have to be considered by business engineers. We demonstrate this process within a concrete case study involving the BBC.
