Accessing an enterprise’s semantic knowledge base has its challenges for the business’ general population. Perhaps development teams already have integrated specific SPARQL queries inside a customer app or custom dashboard or otherwise accommodated some very task-oriented activities and searches, but that has its limits for non-technical users who want to explore outside the box. All the same, these users aren’t likely to write new SPARQL queries on their own — but nor do they necessarily want to wait for their IT departments to pull that together for them. Interactive query builders are options but some may find these still a little too-technically oriented.
This is a problem that Metreeca is looking to solve with Graph Rover, a self-service search and analysis tool that enables non technical users to interact visually with semantic knowledge bases. It has just released the latest beta update of the product, which lets users build queries using a graphical interface, but Graph Rover has been in development for two years while the company was in stealth mode, and tech lead Alessandro Bollini says it is already a mature solution that should be available commercially in the first quarter of 2015.
