Neo Technology and O'Reilly Media Launch 'Graph Databases' Book at GraphConnect Boston and Chicago Conferences

Come to GraphConnect Next Week to Meet the Authors and Learn Everything You Need to Know About Graph Databases

SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/05/13 -- Neo Technology, creators of Neo4j, the world's leading graph database, will launch "Graph Databases," the authoritative book on graph databases, next week at GraphConnect Boston and GraphConnect Chicago. Published by O'Reilly Media, the book gives unprecedented access to the power and flexibility of the graph and provides best practices for implementing graph database technology. Authors will present at both conferences, which take place on June 10-11 in Cambridge, MA and June 12-13 in Chicago. All conference attendees will receive a complementary print edition of the book.

"In today's data-intensive world, your data could grow to a few million records quickly especially in use cases such as social applications, recommendation engines, fraud detection, resource authorization, network & data center management and more. The book, Graph Databases can help you master, manage and query your highly connected and dynamic data," said Mike Hendrickson, VP Content Strategy at O'Reilly Media, Inc.

Graph databases are particularly well suited to address one of the great contemporary business trends: leveraging complex and dynamic relationships to generate insight and competitive advantage. Whether we want to understand relationships between customers, elements in a telephone or data center network, entertainment, or genes and proteins, the ability to understand and analyze vast graphs of highly connected data will be a key factor in determining which companies outperform in the coming decade.

"Graph databases are already proven to solve some of the most relevant data management challenges of today. As information processing continues to evolve, the next frontier arguably lies in the ability to capture, analyze, and understand relationships between data. This book was written with the goal of providing everyone with the basic understanding of graph databases," said Emil Eifrem, CEO of Neo Technology.

The book will leave readers with a practical understanding of graph databases and will show how data is "shaped" by the graph model, and how it is queried, reasoned about, understood and acted upon. The book discusses the kinds of problems that are well aligned with graph databases, with examples drawn from practical, real-world use cases. The book also describes the surrounding ecosystem of complementary technologies, highlighting what differentiates graph databases from other database technologies, both relational and NOSQL.

Blockchain is a new buzzword that promises to revolutionize the way we manage data. If the data is stored in a blockchain there is no need for a middleman - the distributed database is stored on multiple and there is no need to have a centralized server that will ensure that the transactions can be trusted. The best way to understand how a blockchain works is to build one. During this presentation, we'll start with covering the basics (hash, nounce, block, smart contracts) and then we'll crea...
History of how we got here. What IoT devices are most vulnerable? This presentation will demonstrate where hacks are most successful, through hardware, software, firmware or the radio connected to the network. The hacking of IoT devices and systems explained in 6 basic steps. On the other side, protecting devices continue to be a challenging effort. Product vendors/developers and customers are all responsible for improving IoT device security. The top 10 vulnerabilities will be presented a...
As the fourth industrial revolution continues to march forward, key questions remain related to the protection of software, cloud, AI, and automation intellectual property. Recent developments in Supreme Court and lower court case law will be reviewed to explain the intricacies of what inventions are eligible for patent protection, how copyright law may be used to protect application programming interfaces (APIs), and the extent to which trademark and trade secret law may have expanded relev...
Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...

Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...
