This first blog looks at how Aura Enterprise empowers companies to find more innovative insights into their data and why it’s important that the database comes from the foremost pioneer of graph databases.
A new way to find insights in your data
The connectedness of your data and its network effects represent an untapped competitive advantage. But analyzing connections in your data is difficult.
The status quo for data is characterized by fragmentation, silos, duplication and disparate formats. Connecting data using traditional methods such as JOINs between tables is slow and cumbersome.
With a graph database, you quickly move from disjointed data sources to connections that solve valuable use cases.
Graph data models are intuitive. It’s easy to look at a graph and see the business problem and how everything is connected.
Neo4j Aura Enterprise includes a powerful graph exploration and visualization tool, Neo4j Bloom. Graph data visualization brings stakeholders together from across the organization, driving “Aha!” moments of insight.
Graph data platforms provide a new way of thinking that drives innovation and gets you out of the relational rut. Companies that consult with the Neo4j Innovation Lab find that they make tremendous progress in a week or less, quickly uncovering use cases that drive immediate value.
The most widely deployed graph data platform Neo4j is the pioneer of the graph database category and continues to spearhead innovations and standards in the space.
Aura is built and managed by the same experts who invented graph databases. Neo4j is trusted by hundreds of enterprises for their mission-critical apps. In fact, many software companies build their commercial applications on Neo4j, in effect betting their business on its market-leading performance and reliability.
