Quantifying the Business Value of Graph

The more data a business needs to collect and use, the more knowledge graphs become necessary. But is there a business justification for the value an organization can expect from the knowledge graph? Enterprise companies need to assess the costs, risks, and return on investment (ROI) of the technology before purchasing.

Validating Value

Forrester Consulting’s most recent Total Economic Impact (TEI) studies measured the value of knowledge graph technologies in specific data analysis projects. These studies reported that the use of knowledge graphs by pharmaceutical, telecommunications, automotive, and banking firms have typically resulted in:

  • 3x faster development of data analytics applications
  • Three-year ROI values of 300 to 400%
  • Data infrastructure cost savings of 5 - 20%
  • Data science computation time reductions of 50 - 95%
  • 30 - 50% reduction in data security efforts
  • Digital transformation cost savings from IT modernization and rationalization

Forrester’s TEI studies of several graph technologies concluded that mid-sized enterprises taking full advantage of knowledge graphs could realize up to $10 million in benefits over a three-year period, driven by improved analytics insight, reduced DataOps cost, greater data scientist productivity, manufacturing, supply chain, compliance, and operational risk reduction, and increased revenue. Those are outstanding benefits!

As Forrester Consulting addresses in their TEI studies, the criteria for success in graph computing are the values Katana Graph embraces in the design of Katana Graph Engine. As a result, Katana Graph brings enterprise data into sharp focus faster than ever before – without disruption, overspending, or overhaul. Enterprises can slash time to market and innovate in ways never imagined before with a breakthrough graph intelligence platform.

Collaboration is Key to Ingenuity
