Are you looking into the synergies between the RDF Linked Data meme and MDM?

Simple value proposition of RDF Linked Data in the MDM realm comes down to this: the Identifiers of the MDM Entities incorporate HTTP, and by doing so it becomes possible to de-reference the description of an MDM Entity (which means exposing Entity Attribute and Relationship Data using a range of represenatations e.g. HTML, RDF/XML, RDFa etc.).

Some live examples:

1. http://demo.openlinksw.com/Northwind/Customer/ALFKI - View of Customer "ALFKI" note the value of foaf:primarytopic property

2. http://tinyurl.com/6a24ts - a Product Information Integration example (basically a product catalog using our Virtuoso Universal Server as an example).



A well researched article, thanks for the info
