Object Type Libraries
We recognize the following major issues concerning managing and sharing asset data:
- Data is unintelligent when it lacks context or meaning
- Data is unconnected, incoherent and bound to single databases
- Data is difficult to exchange between applications and organisations
By creating an Object Type Library (OTL), you can create a structured and meaningful standardized dataset. When an OTL is published as Linked Data, as part of the Semantic Web, you can connect your data to this library in order to add meaning and structure – regardless of database or application. This makes your data more intelligent by adding context via the OTL. With this approach it is possible to query across different databases without having to transform, translate or interface your data. Adding Object Type Libraries makes your data more meaningful, manageable and insightful across your entire application landscape. By linking to other OTLs, you can even query over data of others, adding further value to your own data.
Semmtech offers both tooling and consultancy regarding creation, maintenance, publication and management of Object Type Libraries.
Lack of common data to link multiple sources into a coherent whole
Need for knowledge for managing information libraries
Need for tools to manage information libraries
What makes it even better
Start right away with standard library templates
Direct publication of libraries in Open Standards to use in different applications
Linking libraries to other libraries (even of other organisations)
