The application is hosted by us and is multi-tenant (i.e. every instance 
shares the same code and hosting infrastructure). The data is stored in 
our semantic web platform[1]. Communication between the application and 
the platform is via HTTP using Sparql for many types of query, full text 
search for others and our changeset protocol[2] for updating RDF graphs. 
We're using SKOS and various other vocabularies (including some custom 
ones) for representation of the data. That particular application 
doesn't reach out to other data sources yet (hasn't been a high priority 
requirement from customers), but others under development do that quite 
extensively. A public demo of the application (which is in beta with our 
customers) is available at http://engagedemo.talis.com/engage/
