Maturity Model

The Enterprise Knowledge Graph Maturity Model (EKG/MM) is the industry-standard definition of the capabilities required for an enterprise knowledge graph.  It establishes standard criteria for measuring progress and sets out the practical questions that all involved stakeholders ask to ensure trust, confidence, and usage flexibility of data.  Each capability area provides a business summary denoting its importance, a definition of the added value from semantic standards, and scoring criteria based on five levels of defined maturity. 

The Foundation hosts open working sessions to debate the contents toward the achievement of consensus.
