Making the Case for EKGF
The Enterprise Knowledge Graph Foundation was established to define
best practice and mature the marketplace for EKG adoption including:
Adopt semantic standards to solve the challenges of data management
Develop best practices for accelerated EKG deployment
A curated repository of reusable models and resources
Build the mechanism for engagement and shared knowledge
Advance the business cases for EKG adoption
Executives who seek to realize the benefits (and minimize the risks) of semantic standards and EKG by having access to proven methods, best practices and a community of experts.
Vendors who want to make it easier for organizations across information-intensive industry sectors to understand and successfully adopt their products and services.
ARCHITECTS & MODELERS
Architects and modelers who want access to reusable components, deployable models, ontologies, and interfaces that can be assembled and deployed within their environment.
Consultants who are looking for access to EKG-related best practices as well as a community of potential customers and skilled practitioners.
Academics who are making a meaningful and recognized contribution that builds upon existing frameworks to address pressing business needs.

“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."

“THE FOUNDATION IS DEFINING A SET OF STANDARD CRITERIA FOR EVALUATING CAPABILITY READINESS IN EKG ENVIRONMENTS. WE ARE WORKING ON THE CONSTRUCTION OF A MASTER PORTAL OF PUBLISHED ONTOLOGIES, USE CASES, AND OTEHR RESOURCES NEEDED FOR SUSTAINABLE KNOWLEDGE GRAPH OPERATIONS."
