Slow to launch new products
A business' teams and/or technical platform have constraints which prevent rapid product delivery. Even when the strategic imperative is present, they are unable to achieve speed-to-market.
Improved by these Interventions
Launch a knowledge graph platform
A knowledge graph platform, complete with an API and Webhooks, integrated with core business processes, is a common intervention used to increase speed to market.
Prevented by these Capabilities
Easy to integrate
Ability to integrate quickly and easily with apps and business systems
All core business assets and metadata are available via API
All staff, teams, and machines are able to access assets and data via API, conforming to a common model. All teams are working to this common domain model.
Rapid knowledge graph platform launch
The ability to launch a Knowledge Graph Platform within hours, rather than weeks or months.
Inhibits these Capabilities
Maintain a low cost of incremental innovation
To be competitive, and to have the ability to pivot rapidly, it is essential to keep the cost of innovation low.
Leads to these Problems
Staff become frustrated with arduous and inefficient legacy technology
Legacy technology is often at the root of a spectrum of cultural and product mobility issues. This can cause widespread frustration and lack of job satisfaction.
Caused by these Problems
Technical Debt (Tech Debt)
An identified issue that causes inefficiency or risk. This is a strategic issue that arises when project deliveries leave unintended artefacts, byproducts, or overheads that require resources to manage or support.
Knowledge Graph Platform becomes complex and expensive
If knowledge graph models are designed without pragmatic and value-driven use cases, they can tend to become overly complex and this can result in increased costs and launch delays.
Teams unable to use core business information to innovate
Data Model or Information Architecture changes are slow and expensive
Agile deliveries create new tech legacy
The mandate to deliver quickly means that teams are discouraged from investing in long-term strategic capabilities and focus instead on immediate tactical information management and technical provisions.
