Seeing the Unseen with Graph Technology

Have you ever sensed that there was a correlation within your data that you couldn’t point to, but inherently knew was there?

We’ve all been there. You have every bit of data at your fingertips, and it tells you nothing new.

How could it? A database cannot tell you how the world works. It can tell you only what you’ve told it.

Graphs, however, tell you how the world works. A graph understands the interconnectedness of your data. This is the difference between mapping the genome (getting the data to a storable format) and personalizing cancer treatment (understanding the interconnectedness of genes and diseases).

This talk will illustrate solutions which are uniquely possible through the use of relationships within data. We will explore the use of graphs in multiple industries and detail the simplicity discovered within complex systems. We will empower you to employ graph thinking and graph technologies as tools to unlock your next mission-critical problem.

The solutions are there; they have been hiding between tables. Graph technology enables you to see them.
