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.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
