What are Knowledge Graphs? Why are they Key to Successful Data Governance?

Why are knowledge graphs relevant to data governance? The answer lies in key characteristics. Knowledge graphs are:

  • Flexible – graphs are the most flexible formal data structures
  • Evolvable – able to accommodate diverse data and metadata
  • Semantic – the meaning of the data is stored alongside the data in the graph
  • Intelligent – semantics of data are explicit and enable data validation and drawing conclusions and new information from the available data

These qualities make knowledge graphs an ideal and, arguably, the only viable foundation for bridging and connecting enterprise metadata silos – the main goal of data governance.

In this webinar we will discuss the following:

  • Provide a brief history of Knowledge Graphs
  • Give examples of what they are good for
  • Show how they provide a powerful platform for integrated data management and governance
