Graphs - the natural way to structure data

Neo4j Öresund


LEVEL: Intermediate

Data on its own is pointless. What matters is the information and intelligence that is derived from it. How easy it is to derive such understandings from data depends on how the data is structured. By storing data in a way that is natural to what it represents, to how it will be queried, and to how humans learn and form an understanding about concepts will not only help you and your users draw conclusions more easily and see connections you might not see otherwise, but it turns out it also makes querying easier and improves system performance.

When learning new things, we form an understanding of it by relating it to things we already know. Structuring your data by how things are connected will give you a better understanding of your information, and help you create a better experience for your users.

In this presentation we will see how modelling your domain and storing your data as a graph, with connections between entities as a primary concern will give you a competitive advantage. (edited)
