Abstract

In this paper, we report on a recent initiative that exploiting Linked Data for financial data integration. Financial data present high heterogeneity. Linked Data helps to reveal the true data semantics and “hidden” connection, upon which meaningful mappings can be constructed. The work reported in this paper has been well-accepted at several public events and conferences, including the 26th XBRL conference, involving the realisation of the XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language) prototype called HIKAKU, which means “comparison” in Japanese. It demonstrates our approach to exploit the power of Linked Data in enhancing flexibility for data integration in the financial domain.
