Linked Data offers novel opportunities for aggregating information about a wide range of topics and for a multitude of applications. While the technical specifications of Linked Data have been a major research undertaking for the last decade, there is still a lack of real-world data and applications exploiting this data. Partly, this is due to the fact that datasets remain isolated from one another and their integration is a non-trivial task. In this work, we argue for a Data-as-a-Service approach combining both warehousing and query federation to discover and consume Linked Data. We compare our work to state-of-the-art approaches for discovering, integrating, and consuming Linked Data. Moreover, we illustrate a number of challenges when combining warehousing with federation features, and highlight key aspects of our research.
