11:30-12:20 Intro to Graphs
Connected data is changing the world. We are seeing this consistently across many verticals & industries – web search, network management, recommendations, fraud detection, supply chains – when an industry starts leveraging their connected data, doing deep analysis, figuring out in real-time how this thing relates to that thing way over there, a shift happens in that industry. Players that don't leverage their connected data tend to fall behind. In fact, Forrester predicts that by 2017, 25% of businesses will be using graph databases – like Neo4j. Graph databases are built specifically for handling connected data – something no other kind of database does well today.
12:20-12:40 More in-depth use cases
Learn how e.g. companies differentiate themselves with Neo4j, e.g.
Telenor leverage Neo4j to grow their business by solving real-time access control
Cisco is using Neo4j for many different use-cases e.g. doing master data management
