Franz Inc. and Smartlogic Join Forces to Boost Semantic Knowledge Graph Solutions
Franz Inc. is a leading innovator and supplier of Graph Database technology for Knowledge Graph Solutions. Today, it has announced a strategic partnership with Smartlogic to accelerate the adoption of Graph Database technology for Knowledge Graph Solutions. Smartlogic is the leader in Semantic AI technology.
As part of the collaboration, both companies would join forces to help large enterprises accelerate the timeframe to deploy highly scalable, distributed Semantic Knowledge Graph solutions. The Franz Inc. and Smartlogic combination provides organizations with end-to-end technology along with the expertise to quickly create enterprise-scale Semantic Knowledge Graphs, which serve as the underpinning for Artificial Intelligence applications.
Franz’s Knowledge Graph Platform, AllegroGraph, was relied upon for the “Gartner Case Study: Entity-Event Knowledge Graph for Powering AI Solutions (Montefiore), Subscription Required.”

What is AllegroGraph?
AllegroGraph is a breakthrough Semantic Graph-based platform that allows infinite data integration through a unique approach that unifies all data and siloed knowledge into an Entity-Event Knowledge Graph solution that can support massive, big data analytics.
The FedShardä capability within AllegroGraph utilizes patented federated sharding functionality that drives holistic insights and enables complex reasoning across a distributed Knowledge Graph. AllegroGraph is utilized by dozens of the top F500 companies worldwide and enables businesses to extract sophisticated decision insights and predictive analytics from highly complex, distributed data that cannot be uncovered with conventional databases.
Franz’s Knowledge Graph Solution includes both technology and services for building industrial strength Entity-Event Knowledge Graphs based on best-of-class tools, products, knowledge, skills and experience. Franz delivers the expertise for designing ontology and taxonomy-based solutions by utilizing standards-based development processes and tools.
Franz also offers data integration services from siloed data using W3C industry standard semantics, which can then be continually integrated with information that comes from other data sources. In addition, the Franz data science team provides expertise in custom algorithms to maximize data analytics and uncover hidden knowledge.
This week Dr. Jans Aasman, CEO of Franz Inc.; Jeremy Bentley, CEO and Founder of Smartlogic; and Dan McCreary, Distinguished Engineer, AI at Optum; will discuss how Enterprise Knowledge Graphs address today’s biggest business challenge – to process real-time sources of information and retrieve knowledge from data stored throughout the enterprise and beyond. This informative session about the technologies necessary to address various AI challenges, including Semantic Graph Database technology, Semantic AI, Open Linked Data and other technology standards.
At the time of this announcement, Dr. Jans Aasman, CEO of Franz Inc. said, “Enterprises today need the ability to rapidly integrate new knowledge into their organization, which is the crux of Knowledge Graph solutions and depends entirely on Semantic technologies.”
Dr. Jans added, “Semantic Graph database technology uniquely provides companies with the foundational environment for delivering real-time Artificial Intelligence along with the ability to continually enrich and contextualize the understanding of data.”
“Extracting value from the full set of information – both structured and unstructured is a key challenge for enterprises,” said Jeremy Bentley, CEO and Founder of Smartlogic. “Semantic Knowledge Graphs can connect data from different domains, data models, and data formats without changing the format. Knowledge Graphs also put data in context and create a powerful framework to integrate data, discover knowledge, and perform in-depth analysis across the enterprise.”
“AI solutions are often hindered by fragmented data and siloed point solutions,” according to Gartner’s Chief Data and Analytics Officer Research Team. “Montefiore’s data and analytics leader used Semantic Knowledge Graphs to power its AI solutions and achieved considerable cost savings as well as improvements in timeliness and the prediction accuracy of AI models.”
Currently, Semaphore provides a semantic layer in the enterprise digital ecosystem to manage knowledge models, automatically extract and classify the context and meaning from structured and unstructured information, and generate rich semantic metadata.
Designed for the world’s largest enterprises that demand scale and quality, Semaphore combines the power of Semantic AI with award-winning knowledge model management, precise, complete, and consistent classification and language services, and cutting-edge fact extraction capabilities to enable organizations to reveal smarter decisions.
