Industry Building Blocks LLC (aka: IBB) is the first company to define the global economy by granular industry in terms of the top 21,500 industries.
Semantic Arts Inc. is a global leader in the data-centric transformation movement taking place via the use of knowledge graphs.
IBB Research identified Semantic Arts as the best of the best in understanding and implementing the data-centric future that IBB is focused on to make the Industry Knowledge Graph™ the #1 source for industry information.
After only three months of pleading, begging and groveling, IBB, at the height of the Christmas Season in 2019, got Dave McComb (president and co-founder of Semantic Arts) to agree to the collaboration which resulted in this Industry Knowledge Graph™ resource.
A part of the vision of the Industry Knowledge Graph is to normalize many of the Industry Classification Systems (ICS) in use today. IBB, as the most granular ICS, can translate between IBB and NAICS, ICIS, NACE, UKSIC, and ANZSIC. There are other ICS systems listed at ICS. If you’d like to make your data accessible via the Industry Knowledge Graph™, please let us know – we’re open about our future plans except in stealth mode about other companies that want to be added to the platform.
