ARLINGTON, VA., January 6, 2021 – Stardog, the leading Enterprise Knowledge Graph (EKG) platform provider, today announced that Gartner, Inc., a leading IT research and advisory firm, has recognized the Company as a data fabric sample vendor in its 2020 Hype Cycle for Supply Chain Planning Technologies. According to the report, “Advanced data fabrics have the capability to assist with graph data modeling capabilities (which is useful to preserve the context of the data along with its complex relationships), and allow the business to enrich the models with agreed upon semantics.”
Today’s complex and dynamic supply chains are facing unprecedented headwinds due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which is exacerbating long-term challenges, including low planner productivity, rising competition, and exploding data volumes. Data fabric, a new innovation to this year’s Hype Cycle for Supply Chain Planning Technologies, has a transformative power that lies in its ability to stitch together data from and across internal data silos and external sources and deliver this connected data to a variety of mission-critical business applications, AI, and analytics platforms. The report states, “By leveraging the data fabric design, data and analytics leaders can establish a more scalable data integration infrastructure that can provide immediate business impact and enable new use cases.”
From replacing paper-based systems to leveraging specialized engineering systems to innovating with IoT, Stardog solves the salient issue in manufacturing by unifying data from product development, suppliers, manufacturing, and distributors to uncover existing patterns and optimize operations. Stardog EKG enables manufacturers to instantly see the connections in their supply chain to enable scenario planning based on complete data, rapid identification of needed operational changes, and organizational resiliency to drive long-term customer value and higher profit margins.
“We are pleased to be identified by Gartner as a data fabric sample vendor and to see the technology being recognized as a potentially transformative tool for supply chain planning,” said Stardog CEO Kendall Clark. “Stardog is consistently acknowledged by customers for its Enterprise Knowledge Graph platform and ability to implement a data fabric that supports the business by answering complex queries across data silos.”
Stardog’s Enterprise Knowledge Graph Platform powers new modern integration approaches like data fabrics, which are heralded for their ability to weave together existing data management systems, enrich all connected apps, and support dynamic delivery of semantically enriched data. Stardog’s technology turns data into knowledge to enable more effective digital transformations, and customers reduce data preparation timelines by up to 90 percent by transforming enterprise data infrastructure into a comprehensive end-to-end data fabric.
