Webinar: Creating Content Intelligence: Harmonized Taxonomy & Metadata in the Enterprise Context

2016-01-11, Many organizations have content dispersed across multiple independent repositories, often with a real lack of metadata consistency. The attention given to enterprise data is often not extended to unstructured content, widening the gap between the two worlds and making it near impossible to provide accurate business intelligence, good user experience, or even basic findability. How do you bring all those disparate efforts together to create content intelligence across the organization? This webinar will describe the benefits and challenges in developing metadata and taxonomy across multiple functional areas, creating a unified Enterprise Content Architecture (ECA). Hear Stephanie Lemieux, President and Primary Consultant at Dovecot Studio, talk about real enterprise metadata and taxonomy harmonization projects in different contexts, including a greeting card company, a media company, an automotive manufacturer and a consumer food manufacturer. See how they worked to harmonize across a number of diverse systems that supported multiple functions, from creative processes to manufacturing to reporting.

Webinar: Linked Data Fragments: Querying multiple Linked Data sources on the Web

2015-12-09, Join Ruben Verborgh, researcher in semantic hypermedia at Ghent University, for a DCMI/ASIST joint webinar on the Linked Data Fragments family of technologies. The dream of Linked Data: if we just get our data online, the promised Semantic Web will eventually rise. Everybody will be able to query our data with minimal effort. We will be able to integrate data from multiple sources on the fly. Everything will just work and data will flow freely ever after. Well, that hasn't really happen yet. Even though we published billions of triples on the Web, there are few places that reliably let us execute queries over them. Integration is still very limited. This webinar introduces you to the Linked Data Fragments family of technologies, which take a much more pragmatic view of the Web of Data. Whereas one of the main problems with the Semantic Web is currently the high publication cost of data (with unknown return), Linked Data Fragments proposes shifting the complexity of querying from the server to the client. This makes publishing Linked Data affordable and realistic on the Web.

The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative, or "DCMI", is an open organization supporting innovation in metadata design and best practices across the metadata ecology. DCMI's activities include work on architecture and modeling, discussions and collaborative work in DCMI Communities and DCMI Task Groups, global conferences, meetings and workshops, and educational efforts to promote widespread acceptance of metadata standards and best practices.

DCMI maintains a number of formal and informal liaisons and relationships with standards bodies and other metadata organizations.
