Let us introduce our first event co-hosted with both Akamai - the world leader of CDN services, and Neo Technologies - the world leader of Graph Databases.

As the first activity for our Neo4j & Akamai meetup in Gothenburg, we are going to organise TWO meetings on ONE day. This lunchtime meeting will be high-level - the evening event will be technically oriented.

We also have the pleasure of having Hästens show their use case combining both Neo4j and Akamai!

If you are also interested in the technical aspects of the below, you are welcome to join our evening activity as well.

Neo4j & Akamai (in-depth technical) (

11:00 - 11:30 - Lunch & Networking

11:30 - 11:55 - Intro to Graphs - Rik Van Bruggen ( (Regional VP of Sales at Neo Technology)

The study of Graphs (aka Graph Theory) has existed for centuries. Applying this knowledge to modern day data structures is perhaps a little bit more unintuitive, but as a matter of fact extremely useful. Storing your enterprise data as a graph/network, gives you a much easier data model, a massive boost in performance, and most likely, lots of new business insights.

11:55 - 12:20 - Intro to Akamai - Stefan Krantz ( (Senior Solutions Engineer at Akamai Technologies)

Akamai is the global leader in Content Delivery Network (CDN) services, making the Internet fast, reliable and secure for its customers.

12:20 - 12:45 - Case: Hästens Sängar Global Omnichannel Ecommerce with Neo4j & Akamai - Kent Lovestjärna ( (Digital Media Manager at Hästens Sängar AB) / Anders Ekström ( (CEO at NetConsult Sweden AB)

The story about how Hästens Sängar started the digitalization of their business. Adding leverage with the connected data between numerous silos and the continuous process of optimizing old fashioned workflows. A great example on how a 5 generation family business use Neo4j & Akamai to be able to support the customers of tomorrow in a true omnichannel environment.

12:45 - 13:00 - QA & Networking
