With the LUCID Endpoint, we demonstrate how companies can utilize Linked Data technology to provide major data items for their business partners in a timely manner, machine readable and with open and extensible schemata. The main idea is to provide a Linked Data infrastructure which enables all partners to fetch, as well as to clone and to synchronize datasets from other partners over the network. This concept allows for building of networks of business partners much like as social network but in a distributed manner. It furthermore provides a technical infrastructure for business communication acts such as supply chain communication or master data management.
