CASE: how OpenCorporates uses Neo4j to provide insight in corporate hierarchies

Note: please register on the SkillsMatter site for this event as well so that we can guarantee speedy access to the venue when you get there...

We all know that corporations big and small use different legal entities and structures to "optimize" their operations. Whether it's to minimize tax payments, limit labour law exposure, or commit specific and intentional fraud, the corporate world is full of intimate linkages and hierarchies.

OpenCorporates, one of the world's best known open-data repositories for corporate data, aims to provide this transparancy to all of us. And to visualise the linkages and networks between corporate entities, they use Neo4j.

This case study, presented to you by Chris Taggart (CEO of OpenCorporates) will talk about the vision, strategy and functionality of OpenCorporates, as well as delve into the "lessons" learned from a technical perspective.

    To follow on from Peter's comment below, in addition to not seeing the event on the Skillsmatter website, clicking on the Yes button in the email made it appear that I had been successfully registered for the event. It's only because I go to lots of these events that I know Skillsmatter also require registration - others simply reacting to the email might not... The LJC usually get around this by adding an additional question on the confirmation page that asks if you have registered on the Skillsmatter website :)

      Hey sorry Daniel - it was my mistake... I announced the meetup before I had the correct link... All good now...
