A Semantic DataOps (SemOps) Platform

Knowledge graphs provide a robust, standards-based approach to integrate data from heterogeneous sources. This is an invaluable means by which to distill and represent knowledge that is spread throughout the ecosystem of data silos in an enterprise. By seamlessly blending the principles of DataOps with the dynamic capabilities of semantic knowledge graphs, Mobi transforms the way organizations manage and deploy ontologies and vocabularies. Its innovative features empower users to automate the entire lifecycle of semantic artifacts, from collaborative creation to integration and deployment, fostering a culture of continuous improvement and agility. Mobi’s adaptability and scalability make it a cornerstone for organizations seeking to streamline their data operations, ensuring that semantic artifacts evolve harmoniously with the changing demands of the data landscape.

“DataOps can yield an order of magnitude improvement in quality and cycle time when data teams utilize new tools and methodologies.”


Our journey in delivering services to support large enterprises navigating semantic data fabrics illuminated a crucial need for a sophisticated tool that could effectively apply SemOps practices to ontologies and vocabularies across diverse downstream systems. This realization prompted the development of Mobi, a powerful and collaborative SemOps platform. With a foundation rooted in real-world experiences, Mobi addresses the intricate challenges of managing and evolving semantic artifacts within expansive enterprise ecosystems. By weaving together our expertise in service delivery and the demand for dynamic SemOps practices, Mobi emerges as a transformative solution, providing organizations with the means to orchestrate and optimize their semantic data strategies across a spectrum of downstream systems. Mobi empowers organizations to seamlessly navigate the complexities of semantic knowledge graphs, providing a collaborative and web-based ontology editor that fosters efficient collaboration and exploration.

With its intuitive interface, robust versioning capabilities, and support for diverse ontologies and vocabularies, Mobi stands as the catalyst for ushering in a new era of SemOps, where the evolution of data is not just managed, but embraced.

Ontology Editor

A core component of the Mobi platform, and DataOps itself, is the definition of the types, attributes, and relationships of your data. Mobi offers a robust versioned editing experience for developing ontologies (or models), enabling solution engineers to collaborate directly with subject matter experts and deliver a highly effective description of your knowledge graph. Fashioned after git, the Ontology Editor employs techniques to foster collaboration and review workflows so that you can have confidence in the correctness of your definitions. The editor also supports the development of standardized vocabularies that help facilitate data alignment and ensure a consistent terminology is used throughout the solution and get your entire enterprise speaking the same terms.

Treating your data model, or ontology, as a first-order software citizen is crucial as it acknowledges the significance of these semantic structures in driving intelligent decision-making and data interactions.
