Knowledge Graph Architecture for the Enterprise: Fundamentals for Digital Transformation

Everyone is talking about Knowledge Graphs, but what is a knowledge graph? How can you use it in your business? How do they make data better and more useful?

Learn about this technology that has been used for years by major global companies — from Google to banks to pharmaceutical firms — to unlock deeper knowledge hiding in data. Knowledge graphs work like the human brain does by making multiple connections to related data that ultimately lead to more comprehensive understanding and insights.

Start with this highly recognized data management course – and get professionally accredited – in the use of knowledge graph and its applications.
