RDF Data Processing and Integration Tasks in UnifiedViews: Use Cases & Lessons Learned

In the last few years, UnifiedViews (, became a widely used and accepted solution for management of RDF data processing and integration tasks. PoolParty ( is a world-class semantic technology suite for organizing, enriching, and searching knowledge, which is available on the market for more than 7 years. In my talk, I will briefly introduce UnifiedViews tool and show 3 real use cases in which we used UnifiedViews together with PoolParty Semantic Integrator to help customers to enrich/organize their knowledge base. I will also present a demo of UnifiedViews, which will show how users can work with the administration interface of UnifiedViews and how the data processing and integration tasks may be modelled in UnifiedViews. This talk is mainly relevant for those who are looking for a solution for organizing/enriching their knowledge base. It is also relevant for those who experienced issues when maintaining RDF data processing tasks in the past and are looking for better approaches.
