April 18, 2012
Graph databases are known to improve intelligence, predictive analytics, social network analysis, and decision and process management. Many organizations – from websites adding social capabilities to telecommunication companies providing personalized customer services to innovative bioinformatics research – have started realizing that graph databases are one of the best ways to model and query connected data.
A well-known graph database that has secured its position in the telecommunication (Telco) industry is Neo4j – the NOSQL database designed to solve complex, connected data challenges.
Neo Technology, the makers of Neo4j graph database, recently announced via a press release that the company has experienced strong traction in the Telco industry, as many major Telco companies, such as Cisco, M800, Deutsche Telekom (News - Alert) and Telenor Group, have selected Neo4j as their database of choice to solve connected data issues.
The new customer-endorsements indicates that Neo4j is proving to be successful in solving some of the most critical, connected, telecommunications data issues, quoted a press release.
In general, a graph database utilizes graph structures with nodes, edges, and properties to represent and store data. It helps developers to build software, web and mobile applications that involve querying.
Neo Technology’s Neo4j is a high-performance, NOSQL graph database with all the features of a mature and robust database. It is an open source project available in a GPLv3 Community edition, with Advanced and Enterprise editions available under both the AGPLv3 and commercial licenses.
Designed to solve complex, connected data challenges, Neo4j is a high performance graph database, which is transactional, durable, and scales to meet the demands of complex data. Offering real-time response, the Neo4j graph database is optimized for performing customer-oriented queries -- such as customer services, messages, and information -- demanded by Telco consumers.
Apart from enabling high performance queries on the complex, connected data inherent in today's applications, the Neo4j provides mature support for transactions so that enterprise developers can execute “all or nothing” transactions.
Known to simplify the development of applications using complex, connected data, Neo4j provides good Java support and ensures that any transaction committed to the database will not be lost.
According to a press release, Telenor (News - Alert) Group is leveraging Neo4j to easily manage its customer organizational structures. Similar way, Cisco has been leveraging Neo4j to build its next-generation master data management platform.
