Cloud computing has emerged as a model in support of “everything-as-a-service”. In this presentation, we describe how the “everything-as-a-service” paradigm can radically simplify the access to dynamic semantic applications and, in particular, the data sources they are using. Going beyond the provisioning of infrastructure and applications as a service, we discuss an architecture in which also data sources (e.g. from the Linked Open Data cloud) can be consumed as a service. This data-as-a-service concept is realized by the virtualization of data sources, where remote sources can be connected ad hoc based on a federation approach, while the location and access of these sources is transparent to application developers and end users. In the presentation we describe and demonstrate the complete technology stack of a Self-Service portal, in which Linked Data applications can be provisioned and data sources can be dynamically discovered and integrated at the click of a button.

Dr. Peter Haase is working as a lead architect at fluid Operations, where he is leading the research and development activities at the interface of semantic technologies and cloud computing. Previously, Peter was at the Institute of Applied Informatics and Formal Description Methods (AIFB) at the University of Karlsruhe, where he obtained his PhD in 2006. Before joining the AIFB, he worked in the Silicon Valley Labs of IBM in the development of DB2 until 2003. His research interests include ontology management and evolution, decentralized information systems and Semantic Web. At the AIFB, he previously worked in the EU IST project SWAP (Semantic Web and Peer-to-Peer) and SEKT (Semantically Enabled Knowledge Technologies) and was working as a project leader for the EU IST project NeOn (Lifecycle Support for Networked Ontologies).
