III: FacetNow Capabilities - A Peek Under the Hood
? Current Issue with converting data to SemWeb: It?s labor intensive
? What it involves today: importing data, mechanism to convert to RDF, inference engine to make it meaningful.
? What FacetNow has done/developed to address these issues:
o Ability to easily convert standard, clean data feeds
o Templates to ease the import and convert legacy data sets
o Platform that makes it possible to have RDF data sit side-by-side/behind and existing site making it possible to experiment with SemWeb standards without disrupting front-end
o Platform that combines both logic-based and object-oriented programming to ease the load on developers and increase business agility at the non-technical level

IV: Getting Started
? The hard way or the easy way: The process can be, expensive and resource draining, or more automated depending on your needs.
? FacetNow SemWeb Sandbox?: a live dev environment where organizations can train and experiment with their existing data.
