 Wikidata already gives you a way to connect its data to any other
database. You already have IMDB id for movies, MusicBrainz artist ID for
music, and so on. Actually, there are 1994 databases connected to Wikidata
right now, growing as we speak. So, if you really need data from these
other databases, WOQ can be your starting connector.
