EKG Foundation Initiatives

Maturity Model

The EKG Foundation is establishing the catalog of best practices for sustainable knowledge graph deployment based on the EKG Maturity Model – a set of criteria for evaluating readiness in EKG environments.

Principles

Our guiding principles are intended to provide guidelines for the development and deployment of an enterprise knowledge graph.  The principles emphasize shared meaning and content reuse that are the cornerstone of operating in complex and interconnected environments.  

EKG Portal

The EKG Foundation will offer curated access to published ontologies, tools, use cases and other resources needed for sustainable knowledge graph operations.

Making the Case for EKGF

The Enterprise Knowledge Graph Foundation was established to define

best practice and mature the marketplace for EKG adoption including:

 

STANDARDS  
Adopt semantic standards to solve the challenges of data management

 
METHOD

A curated repository of reusable models and resources
COMMUNITY  
Build the mechanism for engagement and shared knowledge
ADVOCACY  
Advance the business cases for EKG adoption

 “DATA FRAGMENTATION HAS BECOME A SIGNIFICANT LIABILITY FOR FIRMS WHO WIND UP SPENDING COUNTLESS HOURS AND SIGNIFICANT MONEY MOVING DATA FROM ONE PLANE TO ANOTHER AND RECONCILING DATA MEANING. THE MORE COST-EFFECTIVE APPROACH IS TO ADOPT SEMANTIC STANDARDS THAT ARE DESIGNED TO RESOLVE AND MAP DATA IN A UNIFORM WAY ACROSS ALL DATA PIPELINES."
