Ontotext updates its enterprise knowledge graph platform
Ontotext is enhancing its flagship platform with GraphQL interfaces to make it easier for application developers to access knowledge graphs.
The underlying Semantic Object service will implement an efficient GraphQL to SPARQL translation optimized for GraphDB, as well as a generic configurable security model.
“Ontotext Platform 3.0 is the next major release streamlining the development of solutions around enterprise knowledge graphs, integrating internal knowledge with external reference data,” said Atanas Kiryakov, CEO, Ontotext.
Knowledge graphs increase the diversity and the depth of the information available for business intelligence, fostering deep insights and better decision making.
A key challenge knowledge graphs overcome is combining the traditional enterprise data management systems for data quality, governance and master data, with modern analytics and machine learning algorithms.
The result leads to more adaptive and intelligent knowledge management solutions efficiently operating on top of the existing data silos applications.
Ontotext Platform 3.0 features technology improvements to enable simpler and faster graph navigation.
The new GraphQL user-centric API exposes an additional interface to start consuming complex information much faster at a lower cost. Business analysts (BAs) and subject matter experts (SMEs) are in charge to define Semantic Objects as specific views, abstracting developers from the complexity and peculiarities of the knowledge graph.
Based on these definitions, the Semantic Object service implements an efficient GraphQL to SPARQL translation optimized for GraphDB – Ontotext’s semantic graph database engine. This service implements a generic configurable security model, enabling access control without back-end development.
The Platform is cloud-agnostic and supports an easy extension with custom services packaged as Docker containers. It includes operational dashboards for service monitoring, efficient metric collection services, alerting, as well as all other functionalities necessary for delivering high-availability business-critical production services.
