Abstract
Graph databases are core big data technology. This adoption requires mainstream business tointegrate with other business technologies, such as Business Intelligence. We explain why businesses are moving to graph to solve complex data problems and then explain why existing BI solutions fall short when paired with graph technology. View a preview of what the future of graph-based BI looks like.

This talk walks through the adoption of graph databases to solve complex business problems through the required evolution of business intelligence tools to support this new technology.

The talk will review the benefits of graph database vs relational database for data science and businesses use cases, e.g. Customer 360, law enforcement - - We will show how the graph database is essentially an enhanced relational database where relationships are expressed directly as edges, rather than indirectly as joins. We examine how this structure gives rise to major benefits when dealing with very large datasets, and in looking for patterns buried in multi-party relationships. We will discuss and demonstrate some of the more sophisticated graph-based visualizations and algorithms that are now possible.
