Knowledge Graphs as Enablers of Digital Twins - InBrief Analysis - Worldwide

Today, highly structured data management systems and relational databases meet businesses’ requirements only to a limited extent. Technology is changing and evolving at a fast pace and the amount of available unstructured data keeps growing. Therefore, information models have to become more flexible in order to deal with the rising complexity of the data landscape.
