Eclipse Lyo is focused on OSLC (Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration)
. OSLC tries to solve to the issue [1] of
integrating variety application life-cycle management (ALM) tools using the
Linked Data principles. To do so, they define a set of specifications [2]
including a core specifications and a specification to each of the
different domains in ALM (eg. requirement management, change management,
quality management, etc.) that define a minimum common vocabulary needed
for integration and some additional features required for tool integration
like "delegated UI", "Resource Shape", and a simplified query syntax. There
is an overlap of OSLC Core and LDP specifications as both of them define a
basic protocol for Linked Data based applications. According to the wiki of
OSLC Core specification [3], "work is current advancing on version 3.0 and
alignment with W3C member submission on Linked Data Basic Profile and the
work of the W3C Linked Data Platform working group". Currently Lyo provides
[4] a Java (and Perl) SDK for OSLC, a set of reference implementatons for
each domain like Change Management, and an OLSC test suite.

IMHO, you are right, OSLC is one of the Enterprise Linked Data scenarios.

The main difference I see is that Eclipse Lyo is focused on
Application Life-cycle Management domain where as LDP / Marmotta project
will provide a more general purpose LDP implementation where wide variety
of Linked Data applications (Enterprise, Open Data, exposing legacy data,
etc.) can be built. Depending on how things progress and the choice of the
Lyo community, Lyo might be able to use Marmotta for adapting LDP.
