Discussions around the Semantic Web are always interesting and intense. Progress on this evolving technology happens each and every day. So understanding what semantic technologies are, and how they can help you, really changes with each advance.

Semantic Web data can be represented using a technology standard called Resource Description Framework (RDF). RDF is a graph structure that links data elements together. RDF is in contrast to the historical process of using relational databases. This interesting information was found on CMS Wire in their article, “The What and Why of Semantic Web Technologies.”

With proper semantic technology based on a solid taxonomy, the time spent can be a fraction of what it would take without it. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies.
