How to Build a Semantic Search Engine Using a Knowledge Graph
In contrast to typical enterprise search solutions, knowledge graph-powered search returns fewer, more relevant results, reducing time spent searching up to 90%. A knowledge graph improves search by capturing the meaning of the search terms. Read on to learn how to build a semantic search application using a knowledge graph.
5 Steps to Building a Data Fabric
We hear from many of our customers that they’re interested in building a data fabric, but they’re not sure how to get started. Luckily, with a knowledge graph-based approach, you can start small and grow your data fabric over time. In this post, we’ll share an easy, approachable 5-step process for getting started with a data fabric.

Where Does Business Logic Go?
Let’s talk about business logic. Where should it live inside the enterprise?
Semantic Layers: Four Characteristics that Define the Valuable New Approach
The secret to data analytics success today is a democratized, self-service data platform, and that’s only possible when you leverage a semantic layer to shift from columns to concepts.
Activate Metadata as Part of your Semantic Layer with Stardog's Integration of Databricks Unity Catalog
Modern enterprises need to develop a Data Governance Framework. For effective governance, this is generally underpinned by a catalog megastore. Unity Catalog provides that megastore across the lakehouse, enabling business users access to full metadata across the workspaces and allowing them to visualize the relationships across the data landscape. The creation of a knowledge layer is accelerated when this metadata is available for modeling in Stardog platform.
Graph Database Examples
How do companies use graph databases in real life? At Stardog, our platform combines graph technology with semantics to enable knowledge graphs. Consider the ability to deeply understand and work with connections between organizations, people, transactions, and events (to name a few examples). Add in inferencing, scalability, and near real-time traversal of big data. The number of graph use cases explodes. Relational databases like SQL simply can’t deliver like graph can.
Thoughts From Our 2022 Gartner Data & Analytics Summit Experience
“Enterprises are heading not toward a “new normal” but rather a “no normal.” This theme, chosen by Gartner, reinforces many of the positions held by Stardog. We’ll give you a quick summary of the conference and our takeaways here.
Announcing Stardog 8.1
Stardog 8.1.0 is now available! Read on to see what’s improved in Stardog Designer, Stardog Cloud, and the platform in general.
Common Graph Databases Use Cases
There are many reasons for data and analytics leaders to embrace graph techniques. These techniques can provide unique insight into business problems, especially those problems requiring contextual awareness of the connections and disconnections between multiple entities, including organizations, people, transactions, and events. A well-designed and richly populated graph can capture essential data relationships and their variable nature.
Reflections on the 2022 Data & AI Summit
A trip report reflecting on the highlights of the 2022 Data & AI Summit. We discuss Spark Connect, Delta Lake 2.0, Databricks Unity Data Catalog, and Partner Connect. Databricks has mapped out a path to the future, and Stardog is well-aligned with our partner Databricks’ worldview.
Graph Databases vs. Relational Databases: Know the Differences
Graph refers to a data organization system that emphasizes the relationships between data points. This approach contrasts with the more traditional relational data systems — where data is stored in tables.
Working with Messy Data: You May Have More Flexibility Than You Think
For a knowledge graph to be useful, the data must be valid and consistent. However, concerns about messy data should not impede one from moving forward with a knowledge graph project.
Introducing Stardog 8.0
Introducing the next major release of our Enterprise Knowledge Graph platform - Stardog 8.0, which contains new innovations to streamline data exploration and discovery for all citizen data users. Stardog 8.0’s new capabilities eliminate the need for specialized skills when querying a reusable, flexible semantic data layer, making it easier than ever before to accelerate data-driven insights across the enterprise.
