Title: Towards a business value framework for Linked Enterprise Data


In light of new industry trends and ICT-developments enterprises face an unprecedented amount of data, produced on a daily basis by countless in-house and external ICT-applications and stakeholders. Gaining valuable infor-mation and business-insights out of these masses of data has become a true chal-lenge. At the same time, traditional data warehouse and content management sys-tems, involving data silos, relational databases and data warehouses are reaching their limits. Linked Data and Semantic Web Technologies offer a new approach to Enterprise Content Management. Based on graph-based data models and se-mantic models to establish logical connections between data sources, enterprises can build Linked Enterprise Data Networks (LEDN), incorporating both internal and/or external data sources and allowing users to retrieve documents, infor-mation and datasets across entire organizations in a fast and easy manner. To out-line the potentials of Linked Enterprise Data Networks we present a framework of relevant business values and aspects to be considered by entrepreneurs, when implementing Linked Data technologies in their business.
