Knowledge is a valuable commodity, and using or repurposing it the right way can help a company improve efficiency or even create new products and services. Some industries, such as healthcare, pharmaceutical and scientific and technical publishing, deal with highly variable data, and it can be a challenge to integrate new sources of information. In this talk i will present the efforts to combine ‘big data’ techniques (Hadoop/NoSQL) with semantic web based data integration technologies on private or public cloud platforms. I will give an introduction to the CloudSpace framework to do big data semantic processing in the cloud. CloudSpace is inspired by and currently in trial at notable locations including major Pharmaceutical and Editorial companies.
