The Neo4j Series: Playing with Graphs

Neo4j is a native graph database that is highly efficient and responsive due to the perpetual storage of relationships between data in addition to the data itself. This helps avoid the classic SQL joins overhead in an RDBMS setup. Flexible data models and high read-write scalability are its key powers over and above its in-built graph algorithms and visualizations. In this era of ever-increasing data, it’s all about pattern analysis. Right from knowledge graphs to fraud detection, Neo4j leverages Cypher, it’s home-grown graph query language  in multiple domains of application to help not only in quicker analysis but also to reveal unseen and/or unexpected patterns in order to answer the question at hand.
