Solr Logo
As Presented at Enterprise Data World 2012.

Join us - Thursday, May 24th at 10AM Pacific.

Graph databases are one of the new technologies encouraging a rapid re-thinking of the analytics landscape. By tracking relationships - in a network of people, organizations, events and data - and applying reasoning (inference) to the data and connections, powerful new answers and insights are enabled.

This presentation will explain how graph databases work, and how graphs can be used for a number of important functions, including risk management, relationship analysis and the identification of new business opportunities. It will use a case study in the manufacturing sector to demonstrate how complex relationships can be discovered and integrated into analytical systems. For example, what are the repercussions for the supply chain of a major flood in China? Which products are affected by political unrest in Thailand? Has a sub-subcontractor started selling to our competition and what does that mean for us? What happened historically to the price of an important sub-component when the prices for crude oil or any other raw material went up?

Lots of answers can be provided by graph (network) analysis that cannot be answered any other way, so it is crucial that business and BI executives learn how to use this important new tool.

Intel Logo Intel - Big Memory, Big Data, and the Semantic Web. "Techniques like MapReduce and NoSQL products based on them are fine for some problems," said Mitch Shults, Mission-Critical Segment Strategist, Intel Data Center Group. "To achieve high performance against meaningful amounts of triplestore data, however, you just can't afford to be traipsing all over the network to pull things together. This result demonstrates the incredible value that affordable large-scale, big-memory server platforms built around the Intel Xeon E7 server platform can deliver for next-generation workloads like triple stores." For additional information, see heretarget blank image.. logo What One Trillion Means for the Semantic Web. Mitchell Shults commented on the significance of Franz's recent success loading one trillion triplestores. Shults writes, Triplestores are perfect for making sense out of extremely complex data. However, a triplestore is only useful if massive quantities of information can be loaded, updated and effectively queried in a reasonable amount of time. That is why Franz's Technology announcement is so interesting. Read the rest of the article heretarget blank image..
