ARLINGTON, Va., September 23, 2022 — Stardog, the leading Enterprise Knowledge Graph platform provider, today announced it had joined Databricks Partner Connect, which lets Databricks customers integrate with select partners directly from within their Databricks workspace.

Ask and answer questions across a diverse set of connected data domains to fuel new business insights without the need for specialized skills.
“Data-driven enterprises are increasingly looking to build more context around their data and deliver a flexible semantic layer on top of their Databricks Lakehouse,” said Roger Murff, VP of Technology Partners at Databricks. “Stardog’s Enterprise Knowledge Graph offers a rich semantic layer that complements and enriches a customer’s lakehouse and we are excited to partner with them to bring these capabilities to Databricks Partner Connect.”
