OSLC and Linked Data Unconference
November 5 - 6, 2018
What is OSLC FEST
Organizations are using OSLC to eliminate data silos by connecting data across their business to achieve the digital thread. OSLC has been used to support Application Lifecycle Management (ALM), integrated Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM).
Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) is an initiative to standardize the backbone for the Web of data. How can we achieve a Google for data? How can we query seamlessly data from different databases seamlessly as if it were in one big global database? How can we establish links between data of different databases and how should we manage them? Similar questions have already been solved for documents by the World Wide Web. But what about data? The Web has radically changed how we find and consume information in the form of documents. The next step in this evolution is a Web of data.
Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) merges concepts of Linked Data and Hypermedia REST APIs to enable the Web of data. OSLC provides open standards to achieve a uniform interface to different data sources (e.g. different databases, repositories, applications, files) and enable the connectivity of data between different data sources.
OSLC is supported by products of many vendors such as IBM, Mentor Graphics, PTC, Tasktop, Kovair, Sodius, Maplessoft, smartfacts, and many more. These solutions amongst others radically improve requirements traceability and collaboration in the design of complex systems.
The OSLC and Linked Data Unconference is the place to learn first hand from OSLC experts everything about existing and upcoming OSLC solutions, open-source projects and standards. In contrast to a traditional conference, this unconference will facilitate the informal exchange of information and ideas between participants!
The OSLC and Linked Data Unconference is the #1 meeting of the year related to OSLC. The inaugural OSLCFest will take place November 5 – 6, 2018 at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden - get your tickets today!
