Digitization, Linking, Automation



Link Different!

For A Data Driven Strategy

The 6th Linked Data Day, will focus on the use and benefits of graph technology. Digitalization, linking and automation – the threefold of the digital economy –are the drivers and success factors of economic development.

No company can escape the demands of Digital Transformation. Whether smart everything, Big Data, self-regulating IoT factories or regulatory specifications for processes and products, the networking of data or knowledge is indispensable.

Knowledge Graphs are the most modern and innovative technology to generate coherent knowledge about company data. Gartner® included them in its Hype Cycle for the first time in 2018 as Emerging Technology.

Together with you, we will highlight the use of a graph for the Digital Twin, show the interaction between graph technology and the analytics world and give an outlook on how the combination of networking and AI automates business processes.
