SpazioDati (http://spaziodati.eu/) is an Italian startup SME focusing on a data-as-a-service offering targeted to data consumers such as big data analytical firms, market analysis services, researchers and especially application developers.
SpazioDati is incubated by Trento RISE (http://www.trentorise.eu), a core partner of the italian node of EIT ICT Labs (http://www.eitictlabs.eu), one of the first three Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs) selected by the European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT) to accelerate innovation in Europe. EIT is a new independent community body set up to address Europe’s innovation gap. It aims to rapidly emerge as a key driver of EU’s sustainable growth and competitiveness through the stimulation of world-leading innovation.
Thanks to a state-of-the-art technology based on both Big Data and Semantic Web approaches, it allows its customers to integrate, link and enrich their data with third-party public and private data sources and to redistribute the improved data sets to data consumers. It also offers data augmentation services to help small and large organizations to exploit the value of their information as well as services to help them manage the en- tire data lifecycle. Its platform leverages a stack of open source technologies, such as Google Refine, Apache Hadoop, Titan graph database and Openlink Virtuoso, to implement a powerful, large scale, semantic ETL pipeline.
