KCONG is based on Semantic Web technologies: adopting the abstraction and principles of data spaces to manage diverse and independent information sources, KCONG seamlessly governs digital assets’ metadata, incrementally building a harmonized knowledge graph of your company data, without the need for a tight and costly integration, and offering added value access services, customizable via SPARQL queries and JSON-LD Frames.
