Knowledge Graphs vs. Property Graphs — A Brief Overview and Comparison
We are in the era of graphs. Graphs are hot. Why? Flexibility is one strong driver: heterogeneous data, integrating new data sources, and analytics all require flexibility. Graphs deliver it in spades.
Over the last few years, a number of new graph databases came to market. As we start the next decade, dare we say “the semantic twenties,” we also see vendors that never before mentioned graphs starting to position their products and solutions as graphs or graph-based.
Graph databases are one thing, but “Knowledge Graphs” are an even hotter topic. We are often asked to explain Knowledge Graphs.
Today, there are two main graph data models:
- Property Graphs (also known as Labeled Property Graphs)
- RDF Graphs (Resource Description Framework) aka Knowledge Graphs
Other graph data models are possible as well, but over 90% of the implementations use one of these two models. In this webinar we will cover the following:
I. A brief overview of each of the two main graph models noted above
II. Differences in Terminology and Capabilities of these models
III. Strengths and Limitations of each approach
IV. Why Knowledge Graphs provide a strong foundation for enterprise data governance and metadata management
