The Curious Case of the Semantic Data Catalog: Knowledge graphs have been on the rise and organizations have found a variety of use cases for the technology. One specific type of use case is the implementation of a knowledge graph as a semantic data catalog. With the inherent power of the technology to integrate structured and unstructured information, the application of knowledge graphs as data catalogs seems to be a foregone conclusion. Capturing the semantic context of data in a smart data catalog application provides much more than a simple description of the organization’s data. In this presentation, we will discuss key considerations and business value of semantic data catalogs. We will also review a specific use case where we implemented a semantic data catalog for a government organization to help them track, discover, and govern a large number of data sets.
