Hello and welcome to the third edition of Knowledge Graph & Data Mesh Metaverse which shares interesting articles about this world (and a little Web3 too). We share a lot of content via our Discord channels so thought we’d share the love and provide a regular update as to what’s been floating our boats.
The ticking time bomb of semantic anomalies
This is a great article from Benn Stancil talking about semantic data anomalies that go undetected by observability tools and slowly push the analytical reality of data until it reaches a cacophony of disasters. An ambitious version of this approach to discovery and observability is to use knowledge graphs to address these problems – semantic solutions to solve semantic problems. Have a read here.
Data mesh practical guidance
Author of Data Management at Scale, Piethein Strengholt, has written this interesting article providing some practical guidance for those planning their next-generation data platform, specifically data mesh.
A knowledge graph for climate concerned citizens
We became aware of this initiative via our community Discord channel. Ellie Young has set up Common Action which is an innovation network facilitating climate and sustainability action with data and technology. Their mission is to build connections between companies, non-profits, academics, entrepreneurs, government, citizens, to produce a coherent, collective force across society for responding to urgent global priorities. If you’re interested in this project, Ellie can be contacted on LinkedIn.
A business leaders guide to graph
When graph databases are talked about it’s often about high-level AI or machine learning, but never about day-to-day business. This article from Harry Powell, outgoing Director of Data and Analytics at Jaguar Land Rover, talks about exactly this: how graph databases can help business leaders drive (no pun intended) their day-to-day business processes and decision making.
A good introduction to Web3
This article from Free Code Camp is a good introduction to Web3 with lots of useful links to further reading. So, if you want a comprehensive introduction to Web3, this is a good place to start.
Everyone’s* favorite first lady gets in on the NFT act
Melania Trump launched her own NFT platform to sell limited edition digital artwork and even promises to auction a historically important piece in early 2022 (plans for the Capitol riot?).
*It seems she may not be everyone’s favorite however, built on Solana, their core team has been quick to distance themselves from any invitations to the former First Lady, insisting it occurred organically.
The future of the modern data stack
Bob Muglia, former CEO of Snowflake, in an interview with Barr Moses of Monte Carlo, discusses what’s next for the technology and tools powering data analytics and engineering. With a big nod to knowledge graphs, the article is an interesting read.

As 2021 comes to a close, we thought we’d share Gartner’s top strategic technology trends for 2022. Including Cyber Mesh, Data Fabric, and lots more. Have a read to see if you agree.
