The vision of the Semantic Web still has not become reality even though significant research and development efforts were undertaken. The growth of semantic representations is probably still outpaced by the growth of traditional Web pages and one might be skeptic about the potential success of the Semantic Web at all. But are there alternatives? From our point of view: Not really! The missing spark for starting the Semantic Web is to overcome the chicken-and-egg dilemma of missing semantic representations and search facilities on the Web.

Triplify tackles this dilemma by leveraging relational representations behind existing Web applications. A large part of Web content is generated by database driven Web applications. The structure and semantics encoded in relational database schemes, however, unfortunately was not accessible to Web search engines, mashups etc.
