Swirrl is an SME, based in the United Kingdom, concentrating on delivering practical, successful Linked Open Data solutions to the public sector. Swirrl is leading the way in turning the theoretical promise of Linked Data into tangible results: making it practical and cost effective for organisations to publish data and, importantly, ensuring that data is actually used.
Swirrl’s main offering is a hosted Software as a Service product called PublishMyData. This provides a series of data publishing and management tools, user-friendly data browsing and search facilities, and a range of APIs, working on top of open source standard-compliant quad stores. The service now has a number of public sector customers in the UK and Swirrl is at the forefront of enabling the UK government to deliver on its policies around open data and its ambition to see 5-star linked open data become the default approach to government data publishing.
