> Its primary goal is to provide a way to describe and constrain the contents of RDF Graphs.   We describe exactly what SHACL is and give some examples from some of our commercial work with clients; we discuss the interacting roles of an enterprise ontology and RDF Shapes and how they work in concert. We demonstrate a prototype tool that integrates the development of Shapes (with an ontology) and show how constraints can be generated from SHACL in the form of ASK queries.  SHACL also plays a role as a UI and API aid.  This is an important new standard that helps bridge the gap between an enterprise ontology and different enterprise applications that are based on it.
