Linked Open Data is a highly successful technology for promoting the sharing and use of data via the Web. A number of major players are now using Linked Data technology including: Google, Yahoo, BBC, US and UK Governments, Microsoft and Facebook. Less clear is how one can build applications on top of this ever-growing data in a well-engineered, maintainable and re-usable fashion. Over the last few years we have been investigating how to integrate service technologies with Linked Open Data. We use the term Linked Services to cover the general area that we are investigating.
