Knowledge Graphs versus Property Graphs
About the Paper
We are in the era of graphs. Graphs are hot. Why? Flexibility is one strong driver: heterogeneous data, integrating new data sources, and analytics all require flexibility. Graphs deliver it in spades. Not surprisingly, over the last few years, a number of new graph databases came to market. And, we also see vendors that never before mentioned graphs starting to position their products and solutions as graphs or graph-based. The two main graph data models are Property Graphs and Knowledge (RDF) Graphs. People who want to take advantage of graph-based solutions for data and metadata management want to know what they are, what are their similarities and differences, and what they are each good for. In this white paper, we compare the strengths and limitations of Knowledge Graphs versus Property Graphs and provide guidance on their respective capabilities.
