Conference paper Open Access
Today’s international corporations such as BASF, a leading company in the crop protection industry, produce and consume more and more data that are often fragmented and accessible through Web APIs. In addition, part of the proprietary and public data of BASF’s interest are stored in triple stores and accessible with the SPARQL query language. Homogenizing the data access modes and the underlying semantics of the data without modifying or replicating the original data sources become important requirements to achieve data integration and interoperability. In this work, we propose a federated data integration architecture within an industrial setup, that relies on an ontology-based data access method. Our performance evaluation in terms of query response time showed that most queries can be answered in under 1 second.
