This paper presents the authors' ongoing work on enterprise IT integration of sensor networks based on the idea of service descriptions and applying linked data principles to them. They argue that using linked service descriptions facilitates a better integration of sensor nodes into enterprise IT systems and allows SOA principles to be used within the enterprise IT and within the sensor network itself. The enterprise IT world nowadays focuses mainly on service oriented architecture and service orchestration and starts to adapt choreography. Business processes are described in modeling languages like BPMN or BPEL.
