The Enterprise Knowledge Graph Forum (EKGF) is part of the Object Management Group® (OMG®). 

The EKGF was established to define best practice and mature the marketplace for EKG adoption, including: 

Advocacy • Best Practices • Maturity • Capability • Standards

The four quadrants

A Business Enterprise is an aspiration, initially pursued by its founders and subsequently sustained by the passion of rank and file through generations of management and employees.

What helps a business to retain its initial inspiration and sustain it through the passion of its employees is the ability to relate day-to-day activities to a set of well-managed and principles-guided “knowledge” methods & tools

Component: Data Products

The Data Products Working Group was set up to work on a Data Products specification (DPROD). This is to be submitted via the Object Management Group to become a new international standard. The DPROD WG meets every Friday.

FOUR QUADRANTS

Accordingly, the EKGF framework for “knowledge-empowered” business excellence can be seen as a set of four mutually reinforcing quadrants:
 

  1. Principles - articulating the key shared beliefs around knowledge empowerment across the enterprise and its ecosystem

  2. Method - articulating the key processes around adopting, embedding, and managing knowledge through graphs into enterprise SOPs

  3. Capability Components - articulating the key units of “knowledge-enabled” work organization and collaboration

  4. Maturity - articulating level of excellence in the practices of knowledge enablement and empowerment throughout the enterprise
