GraphDB Improves the Knowledge Graph Experience in Latest Update

Ontotext is releasing vering 9.1 of GraphDB – a powerful database optimized for the development and maintenance of knowledge graphs.

In 9.1, the database now offers multiple important features to improve the knowledge graph delivery process further:

  • Validation of all newly inserted RDF with SHACL validation schema to guarantee that the knowledge graph will automatically preserve its high quality after each update.
  • Tracking of all changes in the current active or past committed transactions. GraphDB will maintain a configurable provenance of all knowledge graph updates.
  • Kerberos support to improve security in large enterprise networks.

Ontotext's product team is eager to continue improving the core features of GraphDB 9 as well as to develop exciting new features so that users can easily and efficiently create their enterprise knowledge graph solutions.

Knowledge graphs are the next generation tool for taking important business decisions based on harmonized knowledge models derived from siloed source systems.

A key challenge is to maintain the graph up to date with the upstream systems. GraphDB already supports a highly efficient mechanism for to replace sub-graphs (named graphs), which eliminates the need for developing incremental updates.

For over two decades Ontotext has brought together knowledge, data and analytics transforming how organizations identify meaning across diverse databases and massive amounts of unstructured data through knowledge graphs.
