Talk Abstract
Data relationships are everywhere, among employees in an organization, devices in a network, genes in a biochemical pathway, and producers and consumers in a supply chain. Graphs provide a fundamental means to help represent relationships inherent in data. Using Tom Sawyer Perspectives, Brendan will demonstrate various advanced graph visualization, layout, and analysis techniques developed over many years of practical experience. He will also discuss some of the software engineering challenges that we face in the era of Big Data.

Among the important features Brendan plans to demonstrate are viewing, editing, and interaction methods. Further, he’ll show various scalable, incremental and constraint-based layout algorithms and their usage in various industries, and demonstrate problems and solutions in graph analysis. Brendan will also discuss data representation, federated data integration, model management, rules, filters, and synchronized views of data in both desktop and web architectures.

Tom Sawyer Software is the leading provider of enterprise software and services that enable organizations to build highly scalable and flexible data visualization and social network analysis applications. These applications are used to discover hidden patterns, complex relationships, and key trends in large and diverse data sets.
