Understanding Relationship Graphs and their Applications 

A detailed introduction to this exciting and modern approach to data management.   Many of today's hottest consumer and B2B applications are enabled by highly inter-related data.  Graph/relationship analysis capabilities are often cited as the key differentiator and competitive advantage for many of today's Web giants (Google, Amazon, LinkedIn, etc.)

This session will provide background and a current state assessment of "graph databases" a foundational technology enabling much of this functionality.  We'll focus on advantages of graph DBs over the rational model, options for integrating graph DBs into an existing architecture and outline some of "classic" use cases.  We'll also cover "lesson learned" and provide an overview of key vendor offerings in this space.
