Graphite Ontology Management

Synaptica’s Graphite is a powerful tool for quickly designing, building, and managing Knowledge Organization Systems (KOS) using an intuitive graphical user interface. Graphite is based on Linked Data and Semantic Web standards and utilizes native RDF concept modeling. Powered by a graph database, Graphite offers speed and flexibility in the creation and management of various types of controlled vocabularies including taxonomies and ontologies.

Quickly design, build, and manage

enterprise Knowledge Organization Systems using an intuitive drag-and-drop graphical user interface and workflow

Reduce costs and speed up

project deliverables by reusing a vast and rapidly growing library of public domain property vocabularies (ontologies) and value vocabularies (taxonomies)

Simplify systems integrations

by adopting open industry standard models and portable data interchange formats

Create KOS schemes

using public domain ontology plug-and-play predicates and classes

Build smarter search and discovery

applications by leveraging the logical dependencies defined by properties, predicates and classes

Scale with a powerful

graph database combined with fast search indexes

New in Graphite KOS 4.0

Graphite 4.0 has the same graphical interface for managing vocabularies with new features extending what can be done with knowledge models. New features include:

  • Advanced scheme and concept visualization filtering
  • API support for externally generated concept identifiers (CIDER – Concept ID from External Resource)
  • XML Literal data type
  • Redesigned User and Group Admin and permissions with RDF*
  • Single sign-on (SSO) auto user provisioning and group assignment
  • API System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) 2.0 specification support
  • Support for OAuth 2.0
  • Saved queries to toggle query results
  • API call to trigger saved query
  • Admin API to refresh concept label index
  • Scheduled tasks and reports

Graphite worked better for us. We found it practical, user-friendly, and flexible. Graphite allows you to be more person-centered on the front end.
