"Our vision for our work in Linked Open Data: We work towards a future in which people share the power to collect and organize the data that shapes humanity's understanding of the world.

This is the basis upon which people, companies and institutions of all sizes can generate new insights, build new apps and services, and change the world for the better....
 Strengthen Wikidata
...The Wikidata product portfolio includes Wikidata.org, its supporting tools and Wikidata’s support for Wikimedia projects.

Wikibase Suite is a software bundle that helps users create self-installed and self-maintained Wikibase instances that have greater customization needs. It is primarily targeted at larger institutions with massive amounts of data, usually with their own technical staff and infrastructure that can run a production Wikibase instance.

Its primary target groups are research groups, private individuals and less well-funded organizations that want to share free and open data with the world but that lack the dedicated resources needed to maintain the software themselves. It is designed for ease of use rather than maximum customization...."
