Exploring LegacyWare with RDF and Survol by Remi Chateauneu
Our friends at the Semantic Web London meetup have a meetup scheduled this coming Tuesday entitled: Exploring LegacyWare with RDF and Survol by Remi Chateauneu More details are available below: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Join us for the next Semantic Web London meetup on July 17th. Doors open at 6:30 pm for some networking, pizza and beer, and the talk starts at 7:00 pm. This month's talk is Exploring LegacyWare with RDF and Survol by Remi Chateauneu Survol is Primhill Computer's Software Intelligence tool to analyse and investigate running applications and legacy information systems in-situ. It focuses on the analysis of the typical situation of machines, processes and databases communicating with each other in a system that became complicated, undocumented and difficult to maintain over time. Survol web client connects to a server agent, that can run dozens of modular Python scripts, each specialising on a specific type of technical information. It extracts snapshots of the system in various formats, including graphics and RDF, and presents them to the user for analysis. At the meetup, we'll see how RDF and Survol are great tools to gather, analyse and display unstructured, volatile and diverse system data. Remi is a software developer, with about twenty years of experience working on legacy systems. Over time he noticed that exploring existing information systems is done with the same kind of commands and scripts, so he gathered these in a framework called Survol, which means Overview.

What we're about

London Meetup for all interested in Connected Data technologies and developments. This includes Graph Database, Linked Data, semantics, Knowledge Representation and AI experts, users, enthusiasts and newbies.

Topics at meetups so far have included:

- Linked Data in publishing, Financial Services & Telecoms

- Knowledge Representation and Explainable AI

- Graph Databases in Financial Crime & Product Recommendations

- Knowledge Management

- Ontology development & Data Modelling

- Network analysis in Bioinformatics

At the 9th meetup we tried to agree a simple description for the group to help clarify the topics that we typically discuss:

“Connected Data is a collection of related Disciplines & Technologies where the relationships, rules, structure, meaning & context are treated as first class citizens”.

The group also has an annual London conference which attracts thought leaders from around the world - this year's conference is on 16th November at the IET in Central London - see the website here: (
