About EKG Foundation
Enterprise Knowledge Graph Foundation was formed in April 2020 to promote semantic standards and best practices to support the growing enterprise knowledge graph marketplace. A consortium of data management and semantic technology advocates, EKG Foundation is a non-profit organization focused on the growth of semantic technology, the adoption of best practices, and the implementation of a shared infrastructure for evaluating data quality. EKGF's members participate in weekly open working sessions to debate and develop a consensus in order to provide guidelines for the development and deployment of an enterprise knowledge graph. The principles emphasize shared meaning and content reuse that are the cornerstone of operating in complex and interconnected environments. The first edition of EKGF’s Enterprise Knowledge Graph Maturity Model will be released in early October, 2021. ekgf.org
