Initial focus of partnership will be training classes and videos covering graph database technology


SOFIA, BULGARIA, NEW YORK, NY, and AUSTIN, TX – 21 July 2015: Ontotext and Keen Analytics, LLC today announced a partnership that will help propel the use of semantic technologies by businesses and industries to better understand their customers, markets, and trends. The alliance brings together Ontotext’s GraphDB™, an RDF triplestore graph database, with Keen Analytic’s professional and consulting services focused on semantic and ontological graph analytics.

The collaboration will concentrate initially on:

Integration of Ontotext’s GraphDB product with Keen’s training services. Focusing on providing a better graph database experience for its customers, Ontotext will offer training classes and videos developed and delivered by Keen Analytics. These offerings are intended to garner excitement for the emerging semantic graph analytics field while simultaneously showcasing GraphDB and its companion toolset, GraphDB Workbench. As a result, GraphDB will become more accessible to customers and recent enhancements to Workbench will highlight its ease of use. The initial offspring of this new partnership will be a series of videos providing helpful instructions to users and evaluators of GraphDB.

“This partnership, drawing on Keen’s professional services and training acumen, will help our U.S. and global customers improve their business decisions by gaining a deeper understanding of our comprehensive RDF triplestore product,” said Atanas Kiryakov, Ontotext’s Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer.

“When it comes to graph databases, Ontotext is a global leader in enabling companies to take advantage of emerging semantic technologies,” added Dr. Arthur Keen, partner and co-founder at Keen Analytics.
