The Semantic Web community has come a long way in producing robust, stable, scalable platforms for building applications. However, they have presented a nearly insurmountable learning curve to ordinary users. RDF? Ontologies? SPARQL? There is a lot of jargon. The popular tools themselves, such as Protege, are powerful but hard to use.
Anzo Express turns this on its head by bringing the power of Semantic Web technologies to ordinary users. Anzo Express Starter is a free Semantic Web platform for linking data between Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, including creating ontologies and publishing Linked Open Data.
