“Just convert this to RDF”
“Let’s pilot a graph database”
“Let’s start with everything in this one system”
“We don’t have to know who is going to use it yet”
This leads to…

ENTERPRISE KNOWLEDGE
Why Do Graph Efforts
Fail?
Many KG implementations fail because…
The business does not understand
the value and ROI
There is no clear product vision
Use case is not clearly defined or
scoped to be achievable
Source data and systems are not
accessible
The initiative is siloed from other
enterprise initiatives
ENTERPRISE KNOWLEDGE
What Use Cases
Allow Us to Do
Use cases drive successful knowledge
graph implementation by…
Providing a value statement that is
easy to communicate
Giving guidance to development
teams on priorities
Defining guardrails to scope
successful increments of
development
Aligning different efforts on the
team to a shared goal
Laying a foundation for scale
An Effective Use Case
Business
Content/
Data
Technical
Use
Case
Scope
Roles
● Persona development
● User stories
Rules
● Triggers
● Interactions
● Sample inputs
Resources
● Content
● Data
● Technical use case
Requirements
● Functionality
● Outputs
● Questions/Sample
queries
Purpose
● Metrics/KPI
● Business value
End User
Lead working in
risk management,
Action
identify the risks
derived from an
acquisition,
Outcome
I can generate the
W report required
by X regulator
Diagnosing a Bad Use
Case
Diagnosing a Bad Use Case
No
End User
Not
Actionable
It’s an
Initiative
Inability to
Scale
Diagnosing a Bad Use Case: No End User
Impact
● Too general
● Fail to account for different
experiences of novice vs. expert users
or those with otherwise different
backgrounds or skill sets
● Lack of relevant application
How to Navigate
● Work with stakeholders to
understand end users
● Prioritize 1-2 user groups per use case
● Engage with representatives from
user group to validate design and
development efforts
“I want to integrate data from 4 legacy systems to support advanced
analytics, automated reporting and data lineage”
Impact
● Misalignment from stakeholders on
the goals and capabilities of the
graph
● At release, may not meet the needs
of downstream systems
● Ontology design lacks direction
How to Navigate
● Define triggers and expected outputs
from the graph
● Use pseudo queries and questions to
establish requirements
● Develop the graph with downstream
application integration in mind
“I want to integrate all domain data to serve as the hub for all
research”
Diagnosing a Bad Use Case: Not Actionable
Impact
● Too broad
● Not achievable in a short timeframe,
risking showing no value for
engagement
● Leads to confusion on internal teams
on priorities
How to Navigate
● Break the initiative down into
achievable use cases, using personas
and actions as drivers
● Develop a roadmap that
communicates to stakeholders how
increments feed into initiative
● Prioritize showing value quickly
“I want to model all components of content management at the firm”
Diagnosing a Bad Use Case: It’s an Initiative
Impact
● Have no long-term value
● Quickly become obsolete
● Lead to lost investment and
frustration
How to Navigate
● Develop a strategy and roadmap that
captures future expansion
● Consider ongoing maintenance and
governance needs
“Let’s build this on static data”
Diagnosing a Bad Use Case: Inability to Scale
ENTERPRISE KNOWLEDGE
Approach to Designing a
Strong Use Case
Identify specific end users
Address a foundational business
problem
Garner high participant interest
Communicate specific outcomes
Result in a “clickable” product
Are not overly complex to
implement
Have the required resources readily
available
Provide a repeatable approach for
subsequent implementations
As a portfolio manager, I want to
see the most recent fact sheet
for a fund, so that I can quickly
decide on an investment.
How Use Cases Drive Knowledge Graph Efforts
ONTOLOGY ARCHITECTURE
EXECUTIVE
ALIGNMENT
● Collaborate with
SMEs who
represent personas
to design and
validate
● Leverage pseudo
queries to define
concept and
relationship needs
● Prioritize areas of
design by critical
concepts for the
use case
● Define integration
needs with
downstream
systems
● Establish key users
and access needs
● Determine and
prioritize needs
from source
systems
● Provide value
statement for
graph efforts
● Drive achievable,
visible progress
that can be
demoed to the
business
● Translate technical
efforts into
tangible actions

Knowledge Graphs are Worthless, Knowledge Graph Use Cases are Priceless

  • 1. Knowledge Graphs are Worthless, Knowledge Graph Use Cases are Priceless Knowledge Graph Forum NYC September 29, 2022
  • 2. Expertise in knowledge graph design, implementation, and scale. Enterprise Knowledge Lulit Tesfaye Partner and Division Director, Data and Information Management Sara Nash Senior Consultant
  • 3. “Just convert this to RDF” “Let’s pilot a graph database” “Let’s start with everything in this one system” “We don’t have to know who is going to use it yet”
  • 4. This leads to… “Just convert this to RDF” “Let’s pilot a graph database” “Let’s start with everything in this one system” “We don’t have to know who is going to use it yet” Strained Relationships with Stakeholders 360+ Hours Spent Reworking Priorities Team Turnover and Internal Frustration 50+ Hours Spent on Workarounds for Design & Validation
  • 5. ENTERPRISE KNOWLEDGE Why Do Graph Efforts Fail? Many KG implementations fail because… The business does not understand the value and ROI There is no clear product vision Use case is not clearly defined or scoped to be achievable Source data and systems are not accessible The initiative is siloed from other enterprise initiatives
  • 6. ENTERPRISE KNOWLEDGE What Use Cases Allow Us to Do Use cases drive successful knowledge graph implementation by… Providing a value statement that is easy to communicate Giving guidance to development teams on priorities Defining guardrails to scope successful increments of development Aligning different efforts on the team to a shared goal Laying a foundation for scale
  • 7. An Effective Use Case Business Content/ Data Technical Use Case Scope Roles ● Persona development ● User stories Rules ● Triggers ● Interactions ● Sample inputs Resources ● Content ● Data ● Technical use case Requirements ● Functionality ● Outputs ● Questions/Sample queries Purpose ● Metrics/KPI ● Business value End User Lead working in risk management, Action identify the risks derived from an acquisition, Outcome I can generate the W report required by X regulator
  • 8. Diagnosing a Bad Use Case
  • 9. Diagnosing a Bad Use Case No End User Not Actionable It’s an Initiative Inability to Scale
  • 10. Diagnosing a Bad Use Case: No End User Impact ● Too general ● Fail to account for different experiences of novice vs. expert users or those with otherwise different backgrounds or skill sets ● Lack of relevant application How to Navigate ● Work with stakeholders to understand end users ● Prioritize 1-2 user groups per use case ● Engage with representatives from user group to validate design and development efforts “I want to integrate data from 4 legacy systems to support advanced analytics, automated reporting and data lineage”
  • 11. Impact ● Misalignment from stakeholders on the goals and capabilities of the graph ● At release, may not meet the needs of downstream systems ● Ontology design lacks direction How to Navigate ● Define triggers and expected outputs from the graph ● Use pseudo queries and questions to establish requirements ● Develop the graph with downstream application integration in mind “I want to integrate all domain data to serve as the hub for all research” Diagnosing a Bad Use Case: Not Actionable
  • 12. Impact ● Too broad ● Not achievable in a short timeframe, risking showing no value for engagement ● Leads to confusion on internal teams on priorities How to Navigate ● Break the initiative down into achievable use cases, using personas and actions as drivers ● Develop a roadmap that communicates to stakeholders how increments feed into initiative ● Prioritize showing value quickly “I want to model all components of content management at the firm” Diagnosing a Bad Use Case: It’s an Initiative
  • 13. Impact ● Have no long-term value ● Quickly become obsolete ● Lead to lost investment and frustration How to Navigate ● Develop a strategy and roadmap that captures future expansion ● Consider ongoing maintenance and governance needs “Let’s build this on static data” Diagnosing a Bad Use Case: Inability to Scale
  • 14. ENTERPRISE KNOWLEDGE Approach to Designing a Strong Use Case Identify specific end users Address a foundational business problem Garner high participant interest Communicate specific outcomes Result in a “clickable” product Are not overly complex to implement Have the required resources readily available Provide a repeatable approach for subsequent implementations As a portfolio manager, I want to see the most recent fact sheet for a fund, so that I can quickly decide on an investment.
  • 15. How Use Cases Drive Knowledge Graph Efforts ONTOLOGY ARCHITECTURE EXECUTIVE ALIGNMENT ● Collaborate with SMEs who represent personas to design and validate ● Leverage pseudo queries to define concept and relationship needs ● Prioritize areas of design by critical concepts for the use case ● Define integration needs with downstream systems ● Establish key users and access needs ● Determine and prioritize needs from source systems ● Provide value statement for graph efforts ● Drive achievable, visible progress that can be demoed to the business ● Translate technical efforts into tangible actions
  • 16. ENTERPRISE KNOWLEDGE Landscape of Applications for Knowledge Graphs Entity Resolution Identification of Risks & Opportunities Data Governance and Quality Management 360 Views Intelligent Reporting and Insights Chatbots Recommendations Engine Case/Issue Routing Advanced Reporting & Decision-Making Content Personalization Expertise Locator Learning and Badging Auto-Tagging Semantic Search Reporting and Analytics Discovery, Standardization & Quality Control Content Management Navigation Search and Faceting Tagging Ontology and Knowledge Graph Basic Taxonomy Advanced Taxonomy Use Case Level Use Case Business Value Semantic Formalization & Expressivity Maintenance Development Cycle Strategy
