Franz Updates AllegroGraph with the Ability to Ingest JSON and JSON-LD Documents

Franz Inc., a provider of artificial intelligence (AI) solutions and supplier of Semantic Graph Database technology for Knowledge Graphs, is releasing AllegroGraph v6.5, supporting the ingestion of JSON and JSON-LD documents, comma separated value (CSV) files, and RDF data.

AllegroGraph 6.5 makes it possible to automatically link structured RDF data to information within JSON documents based on semantic concepts, allowing users to perform graph analytics across linked data within databases, document stores and CSV files.

AllegroGraph 6.5 delivers the power to define many different types of documents that can all point to each other using standards-based semantic linking and allow users to run SPARQL queries, conduct graph searches, execute complex joins and even apply Prolog AI rules directly on a diverse sea of objects.

AllegroGraph 6.5 provides free text indexes of JSON documents for retrieval of information about entities, similar to document databases. AllegroGraph 6.5 also enables retrieval of entire documents.

In addition to ingesting regular JSON objects, AllegroGraph significantly enhances the document database model with support for JSON-LD. JSON-LD is a lightweight Linked Data format that is easy for humans to read and write. It is based on the already successful JSON format and provides a way to help JSON data interoperate at Web-scale.

AllegroGraph 6.5 includes enhanced database security, which is designed to protect the most sensitive data within the flexible environment of a graph database.

AllegroGraph 6.5 is also the first Semantic Graph database to support multi-master replication and Two Phase Commit (2PC) to keep data in distributed databases in sync - regardless which database is used to add or delete data.
