Maturity Model Webinar December 17, 2020

The EKG Foundation held an open webcast (December 17, 2020) on the Enterprise Knowledge Graph Maturity Model (EKG/MM).  Attendees were invited to join the working group and participate in the development and extension of the model.

The webinar video and deck are found below.


The EKG/MM is an open source initiative of the EKGF designed to promulgate best practices across the EKG community.  The maturity model covers essential capabilities as well as standard evaluation criteria required for the design, implementation, and maintenance of an enterprise knowledge graph.  It is organized into four pillars covering the business, data, technology, and organization areas necessary for EKG adoption.   The agenda for the meeting was as follows:


  • Item 1 (Positioning) - the EKG/MM into perspective including a description of how the work has evolved and outline our view of the core deliverables.

  • Item 2 (EKG/MM) - review of the components and capability areas included in the model including example outputs and a review of the criteria for assessment scoring.

  • Item 3 (Process) – operating model and governance procedures including how participants can contribute to the initiative.

  • Item 4 (Schedule) – the target is delivery of V1.0 by 2Q21.  We are planning weekly working sessions starting with the data pillar.  Working sessions are designed to migrate into "deliverable review sessions" as the activity matures.


The EKG/MM is part of the "implementation playbook" project of the Foundation.  We are contributing the work we have been doing to the EKG community because we believe in the value of standards and best practices.  We’ve done a significant amount of work to get things organized and are excited to introduce the initiative to the community.  We look forward to your participation.

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.
