Driving success of semantic web

Understanding why the semantic web has not gained the expected traction in the business community

Read an interesting survey re traction around the semantic web.  Listed a number of barriers to adoption of semantic web:

  1. organisational culture
  2. the complexity of the technology
  3. a general lack of experts
  4. a lack of success stories
  5. a lack in quality of available software and
  6. the problem to quantify the benefits

I thought it would be interesting to consider each of thse in some more detail in a series of postings – designed to assist in promoting a greater understanding of semantic web and its potential use.  Would welcome any feedback/ ideas on this subject.

The referenced survey targeted a fairly technical, web savy, group, across Europe.  Am keen to engage more directly with business poeple – amongst many of whom I am not sure there is a clear understanding of, or interest in, the semantic web.
