From the social graph, to the call graph, to the call center graph, to the master data graph, organizations are adopting graph databases to get more out of their existing data: through understanding and leveraging it in new ways. Neo4j, the world's leading graph database, has the largest partner and developer ecosystem among graph database vendors and tens of thousands of successful deployments, including over 25 of the Global 2000. Neo4j is a robust and proven database technology with native graph support, used in mission-critical systems worldwide.

Gartner's latest research points to 5 Graphs from which consumer Web giants have derived a competitive advantage, recommending that enterprises seek to evolve their ability to manage the graphs that are important to their business. Neo Technology will discuss the 5 graphs that Telcos can leverage to gain competitive advantage, pointing to specific examples of Telcos using Neo4j to address these opportunities. These include the Network Graph, the Social Graph, the Call Graph, the Master Data Graph and and the Help Desk Graph. These will be introduced for the first time on its April 4 and May 22 webinars.

Why are telecommunications companies adopting graphs?

By structuring their data in a graph database, Telcos are able to achieve the following benefits:

  • Minutes-to-Milliseconds Performance
    • Neo4j turns complex joins into simple & fast graph traversals, which for relatedness queries are over 1000x faster than relational databases.
  • Drastically Accelerated Development Cycles
    • Thanks to its flexible graph data model intuitive graph query language (Cypher), Neo4j catapults projects past relational friction and impedance, allowing networks to be modeled as networks, not as relational tables. The flexibility and power gained is enormous, and translates into immediate and substantial value to the business.
  • Carrier-Graph Reliability and Robustness
    • Neo4j is an enterprise database with full ACIDity, support for high-availability clustering, and transaction support. Global 2000 companies rely on Neo4j at the heart of their business critical systems, including carrier-grade telecommunications applications.
