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.

Join a working group

EKGF has established three Maturity Model working groups  – one on defining the EKG business pillar, one on reviewing the draft of the EKG/MM data pillar (starting with data architecture), and Baseline research (starting with EKG technology).   Please  join the conversation and contribute to the EKG body of knowledge.  The links to join are below.

  • NEW! Technology Pillar -weekly on Monday (11:30am-12:30pm Eastern). The first meeting is Monday, June 7.
    RSVP FOR THE MONDAY GROUP

     

  • Business Pillar - weekly on Tuesday (11:00am-12:00pm) – with the goal of translating semantic capabilities into business language, ROI calculation methodologies, lexicon of terms, and other ways of quantifying the EKG value proposition.
    RSVP FOR THE TUESDAY GROUP
     

  • Data Pillar – weekly on Wednesday (11:00am-12:00pm) – with the goal of evaluating the draft maturity descriptions, scoring, and implementation guidance.  The draft of the data pillar is available via the EKGF website.  We are starting with the core data architecture capabilities of identity resolution, ontologies, inventory management, business glossary and data integration.
