Why Virtuoso -- In regards to Knowledge Graph Development & Exploitation?

Virtuoso offers a unique approach to Knowledge Graph delivery that not only provides a conceptually coherent interface to disparate enterprise data sources, but achieves this technically challenging feat with minimum (if any) disruption to your existing infrastructure – courtesy of broad support of existing open standards.

Open standards support includes:

  1. HTTP, ODBC, JDBC, ADO.NET, OLE DB, WebDAV, CalDAV, CardDAV, IMAP4 for Data Access
  2. RDF, RDF Schema, Schema.org, and the Web Ontology Language (OWL) for Data Definition
  3. SQL and SPARQL for Data Definition and Manipulation
  4. Relational Tables (N-Tuples) and RDF Graphs (3-Tuples) for Structured Data Representation

Today, Virtuoso is the dominant deployment platform for more than 75% of the nodes that constitute the worlds largest and publicly access Knowledge Graph known as the Linked Open Data Cloud.

It is also the most broadly implemented platform across enterprises – especially those beyond the proof-of-concept stage.
