Explore, analyse and curate knowledge graphs in terms of traceability

“Glad you introduced a traceability process in your company. Now you are able to relate the various types of artifacts in order to build up a large traceability graph.” – But what are the next steps? How do you deal with the enormous amount of information? We provide you with use cases to explore, analyse and curate your traceability graphs. itemis ANALYZE  is a professional traceability management system. It provides a full knowledge graph that may connect your whole development toolchain, including modelling tools and code. In addition to that we present possible applications of ML techniques to explore, analyse and curate your knowledge graph. We analyse the similarities of requirements in order to create a tailored ontology. This is the basis for your requirements-specific knowledge graph and further analysis. We will present the application of graph-based algorithms to analyse 8 aspects of your knowledge graph.
