Knowledge Graph Applications

Provide consistent unified access to data across different systems by using the flexible and semantically precise structure of the knowledge graph model

Knowledge graphs link diverse data and content to provide access to knowledge locked in siloed systems or static documents. Using ontologies and semantic metadata to describe the data, knowledge graphs make it easy for both human users and computers to interpret it. This prevents misinterpretation of data developed without centralized control. This is particularly important when it comes to connecting enterprise information through a data fabric as well as analysis of data from data lakes.

We’ve have successes implementing this vision with in-use applications across several verticals:

How You’ll Benefit

Connect and publish enterprise knowledge, integrating data from different sources.
Get value from information previously locked in disconnected systems or in static content.
Enrich your proprietary information with external domain knowledge to put it in context.
Utilize your enterprise data better to empower deeper analytics for stronger insights.
Develop new revenue streams from existing assets and data products.

How it Works

Next-generation data management and content management technologies rely heavily on diverse, complex and dynamic metadata.  Active metadata is at the heart of the data fabric concept for automation of data analytics. Knowledge graphs bring together data and metadata across different IT systems to deliver disruptive efficiency gains across numerous applications as shown on the map below.

Main Applications

Content Management

If you are a content-centric enterprise, knowledge graphs can help you better utilize and repackage your content. By enriching your content with additional metadata, you can make it easier to discover and explore, generate better feeds, improve user engagement on your website, suggest better recommendations and more. Content enrichment can be automated by the use of text analysis.

Knowledge Management

Having the right knowledge about your products, devices, technical documentation, skills and competencies, research teams performance, etc. is crucial for many processes within an organization. By developing domain-specific taxonomies and vocabularies to populate the semantic model of a knowledge graph, you can better classify your documents and thus improve your knowledge discovery and analytics.

Data Management

If you are a data-centric organization, knowledge graphs can enable you to have unified access to all your diverse data. Using large volumes of domain knowledge about companies, electrical networks, pharmacology, scientific publications, etc. can help you get deeper analytics, enhance decision making, improve search and recommendations, strengthen scientific collaboration and more.

Business Process Management (BPM) & Automation

Knowledge graphs can help your enterprise get a global view across an extensive set of products or components working together in a complex system such as Building Automation Systems, automotive manufacturing, aerospace, etc. They can significantly facilitate infrastructure monitoring, predictive maintenance, research and repurposing of existing resources (connected inventory), supply chain management and more.

CRM, PR, Compliance

Knowledge graphs in combination with text analysis can enable your organization to do better media monitoring for PR and reputation management, market research, brand or product perception, competitor analysis, as part of know-your-customer and anti-money laundering policies, etc. They can also help you with regulatory reporting, digital twins, chatbots and more.
