Linked Data Awareness Barometer 2015

Questions on the use of Linked Data in businesses.

    Why this survey?

    This survey intends to reflect the opinion of various stakeholders working in different industry verticals about the status of Linked Data technologies. The main question is: Is Linked Data perceived as mature enough to be used on a large scale in enterprises? The results will contribute to the development of the Linked Data market by reporting how enterprises currently think.

    Who are we?

    We are a consortium of five companies (Semantic Web Company, Cognizant, Lean Information, semweb LLC, 3 Round Stones) and a research institute (Institute of Information Business at WU Wien) working in the areas of Enterprise Information Management, Linked Data and Semantic Technologies.

    Why should I participate?

    All data and the results of this survey will be made public. Your participation is a valuable contribution to users, vendors, developers and consultants in order to underline best practices and to warn of any pitfalls. Participants who provide their email address will take part in a drawing for two free conference tickets to SEMANTiCS 2015, which will take place next September in Vienna.

    What is the survey schedule?

    This survey will remain open until January 20, 2015. At the end of January 2015 the anonymized data and a report 'Linked Data Awareness Barometer 2015' will be made available to the public. The initial results will be presented on January 15, 2015 at the Vienna Semantic Web Meetup.
