Neo4j attempts to address the classical object - relational impedance mismatch, and that is fascinating. In a way it offers a change of mindset, a fresh and innovative way of looking at data with another perspective, namely, people (nodes), attributes and relationships. After all, that's what we all do in the real world...communicate to fulfill.
I'm a Data Architect, worked (too) long with traditional RDBMS' and BI and DW solutions for enterprises. Currently exploring and discovering ways in which Big Data can integrate into existing architectures. Stumbled across Neo4j and was hooked.
