The project aims to create a cross-border knowledge graph of companies, and a set of innovative business products and services build upon the knowledge graph. You might wonder:
• Why? Corporate information, including basic company firmographics, financials and contextual data are the foundation that many data value chains in different sectors depend on.
• For whom? The most evident examples of such value chains are the business information sector, the marketing and sales sector and the business publishing industry.
• The challenge! Collecting and aggregating information about a business entity from public sources, across borders and languages is a tedious and very expensive task.
• How? By providing a data marketplace based on a “business knowledge graph” – a highly interconnected graph of company-related information. The marketplace will enable the creation of data-driven products and services starting with a set of six corresponding business cases.
