How many a dispute could have been deflated into a single paragraph, if the disputants had dared to define their terms ?


You may have heard about the power of weblogs and podcasting.
  Now the same technology is about to change your business.


Learn more about the logistical benefits of using Semantic Web Technology.
And how it saves your money.


To make adoption a piece of cake, we've packaged advanced XML technology into products, whose users won't even need the manual.

If you know weblogs and podcasts, you will know RSS.

Whenever you subscribe to a weblog or to a podcast by copying the link of an XML-button into your favourite RSS client software, your computer makes use of contemporary XML-technology:

  A mostly tiny though powerful RSS textfile, structured according to the W3C's RDF standard, is then being downloaded to your PC or portable device, to find out about the latest articles oder sound files from the feed's publisher.

Machine-readable details are available.

The structure of such a downloaded file enables your computer not only to tell what is made public on certain webpages, but actually learn and interpret information about the original data; like the time of publication, copyright remarks, facts about the author or even locations related to an article's content, as well as other websites reporting on the same topic.

Without a doubt, this way carrying information from the generating to the consuming unit is a powerful functionality.

RDF-Icon   Here at SemaWorx we believe in a very powerful influence of the RDF-format on future transaction design, just from the moment it's getting used inside the common two-way communication environments. And we are not alone.

Sir Tim Berners-Lee is the Semantic Web RDF's mastermind. And even corporations as big as Adobe Systems or IBM already made their products support the RDF-standard.

However limitations arise e.g. to RSS-applications, whenever it comes to interaction with one another, as it is needed e.g. for common social networking applications.

Hard Facts

SemaWorx for the Hurried

— all you need to know —

  1. RDF is an XML-standard that enables machines to "understand" the data's content.
      Currently one major application is the distribution of news or weblog-entries
    as RSS ticker-feeds.

  2. SemaWorx develops applications which allow for RDF-usage in bi-directional peer-to-peer communication, rhather
    than just for distribution purposes.

  3. These applications are very secure,
    reliable and very ("drag'n'drop") easy
    to be used by anyone.

  4. The SemaWorx application front-end is device-independent and deployable
    from mobile devices either.

  5. IT-Developers are welcome to use SemaWorx functionality from within
    their own applications for free.

Something just seemed to be unsolved:
How will you finally exchange and work with this freshly standardized data ?!?

In search for an answer on how to bring together what obviously is a perfect fit,
the idea we chased was:
How can we make this technology deployable (and affordable ! ) for as many people and businesses as possible ?
And this process indeed became somewhat tougher than we originally had imagined…

SemaWorx came up with applying the idea of RDF to entire applications.

The variety of services offered on the web
is overwhelming. You go to Google for
search, of course. When it comes to buying the latest gadgets, maybe Amazon will be your choice — or somebody else.
  Trading, financials, trip-planning, travel- booking, socializing — for anything you may want to do on the web, there might be at least a dozen of suitable services with different opportunities each and different
terms to make use of their offers.

Finding and applying to a given combination of these services can be pretty time-consuming these days… — privacy issues go without saying.

Why not try it the other way 'round ?

SemaWorx use the abilities of standardized RDF-data to make the web's services
come to you: "subscribing" to web-applications right from your web-homebase is now just an act of "drag'n'drop".

You will have access to the services you love, have the chance to compare and evaluate new ones, as well as subscribing to them without typing your contact information everywhere all-over again, though maintaining finegrained control over who will be allowed to use each separate peace of your information.
   This process may optionally deploy common sychronization protocols like Microsoft's lately published SSE or competing SyncML by the OMA (just because some of you were asking…).

And to ensure that you can access the services whenever you need them, SemaWorx has been designed completely platform- and device-independent. Therefore a web-capable cellphone will provide you with the same comfortable interface, which you are using on your desktop workstation.

RDF will be to your business, what RSS has been for weblogs all the time: A simple way of forming a relationship.

That said, it's what the web of the future will be like.
Come and see the working prototype !
