How Graph Databases Stand Out
Emil Eifrem, CEO of Neo Technology, presents graph databases at GigaOM’s Structure:Data conference.
Emil touted the power of Neo4j and other graph databases to show relationships among disparate varieties of data with nodes, edges and key-value properties (Think of Facebook’s Graph Search as one version.) The style takes inspiration from the connections among neurons and synapses inside the brain, Eifrem said. But, like other NoSQL databases, Neo Technology’s Neo4j product doesn’t use the SQL programming language, which could limit its adoption among enterprises.
