we are looking forward to make an OWL ontology database as a mirror of a relational database for an upcoming social network semantic website is it a good decision to make?
actually we can go for three options:
we are very much interested in the second option is it wise to use mirror of ontology database as a relation database? how can owL Ontology database be efficient than a relational one considering that we will need to query a lot of external databases like dbpedia,freebase etc?
for the second option, ontological databases requires us to make a query against hundreds of different schemata and classes properties which seems to be a costly affair. And is it a wise decision to go for a complete ontological database for a social networking website ? The project is involves sharing of lot of small chunks of information across an array of distributed users building a personalized model of the user.
ontotext, http://www.systap.com,http://www.opencalais.com/ provides a solution for semantic repositories , its really difficult to determine which is the best option for a STARTUP like us and we can't go in for these expensive paid consultations. so what are the options and solutions availaible for us?
