The problems we are solving for our customers are:
- Data sharing (sometimes for its own sake, such as governmental transparency) that avoids proprietary formats/licenses/products.
- Enterprise application creation (using Linked Data to abstract away from proprietary storage technologies).
- Enterprise application integration (using Linked Data to share application state).

Those constitute the "right" problems for us because they address defined needs.
