Visual graph data collaboration platform

DFRNT is the visual graph data collaboration platform for teams adopting semantic knowledge graphs.

Easy to get started with, makes what is complex approachable.

Visual Graph Data Collaboration

For business and technology teams to be successful together, they need to be enabled to experiment, prototype and collaborate on datasets. We all have a love/hate relationship with spreadsheet software like Excel and know the feeling of wanting to connect data beyond the tabular structure.

We also know how what does not fit in Excel and Word ends up as Powerpoint, Visio, DrawIO and other visualisations because we seldom have tools that are both visual and data-driven. We also know that maintenance of such visualisations is often an after-thought.

What we aim for, is to enable free-form data-driven visual collaboration, based on graph document structures, a problem space we have named the Diamond Data Problem.

Technology and complexity

This decade will be marked by hyperconvergence of technologies. The exponential rate of change will become ever more apparent and so is the need to deal with complexity. All our digitalisation efforts will require accurate data.

Dealing with complexity and digitalisation means data modelling quickfixes and shortcuts won't work anymore. The importance of encoding knowledge accurately will not cease. With complexity growing, the need to model the world as it is increases accordingly.

With DFRNT we seek to enable team to accurately model and iterate how to bring impact and change, combined with ease of collaboration between changemakers.

In collaboration with TerminusDB, the DFRNT Modeller a first leap towards on this jounrney. We hope for impact similarly to how git changed the world of software engineering.

The ability to collaborate on data

The DFRNT SaaS platform is where teams create, host and query accurate data products that represent real-world complexities accurately.

It leverages the open source TerminusDB engine for an open graph backend. Supports git-for-data workflows, state-of-the-art data modelling with composable semantic graph data structures, including inheritance of ontology properties with a document-orientated graph. The datalog graph query engine for typed data is the cherry on top, for when you need to go deep.

DFRNT helps you visualise and think about data. It helps you collaborate and integrate your up-to-date shared data structures with no data model vendor lock-in. We find it to be a great alternative to relying on the current paradigm of disconnected systems, wikis, slides and spreadsheets.

Benefits of the DFRNT platform

With DFRNT: democratic, open and visual access to data becomes a choice, internally and externally. The DFRNT and TerminusDB combination is an excellent foundation to connect with and harness advanced data models.

For challenges like data governance, strategy execution, decision science datasets, OKRs, impact graphs, GRC (governance, risk and compliance) and other organisational data challenges. We also believe our modelling capability are a great fit for ML Ops and similar domains where data curation is key.
