Hello Harry,

are there actually pros or a necessity of using RDF as data model/backend for 
this app?

If the app does not have to handle arbitrary triples and the data model is
mostly fixed, use a RDB and a relational data model. You can still publish the 
data as RDF and there are solutions to offer SPARQL on top that.

Regards,

Michael Brunnbauer
