I will talk about how AllegroGraph, a highly scalable graph database, can be used for relationship analysis in telecom, pharmaceutical, politics, and supply chain management. Next, I will talk about how this database supports server side JavaScript programming like Node.js, and finally I will talk about how AllegroGraph is integrated with Solr, MongoDB and MarkLogic so that we can combine the strengths of each technology.
