Semantic web and data quality

I have been itching to write this post since reading and listening to Phil Simon’s excellent blog post and podcast – Technology Today, #20: David Siegel and The Semantic Web .  If you havn’t listened to Phil’s interview with David Siegel – I recommend you do so now.   I have listened twice so far, and expect to listen many more times.

I have previously discussed Plug and Play Data – The future for Data Quality and I believe that David’s ideas about the “Pull model” and “the power of pull” will help deliver Plug and Play data.

For example, David explains “Semantic” as “Unambiguous”.   As you know, data entry validation against unambiguous business rules can greatly improve data quality.  The semantic web will enable us to embed our clear unambiguous business rules with the data the rules apply to – WOW ! Bring it on !
