GraphConnect Europe: Session Overview

GraphConnect Europe: Session Overview

customersWe have a fantastic speaker line-up at GraphConnect Europe. Let’s take a closer look at the different tracks at GraphConnect Europe:

Business Impact

12:00 – 12:30pm: “Predict Incidents with Neo4j” – Nicolas Rouyer, Software Developer, Orange
How can Graphs help to supervise any (huge) information system, focusing on application flows and incidentology. Two use cases will demonstrate the graph business value: Use predictive analysis for application incidents and Discover architecture bad patterns.

12:30 – 1:00pm: “Graph Visualisation and Analysis” – Brendan Madden, CEO, Tom Sawyer Software
How can project-based application design and development be used to create compelling web and desktop applications that help bring data to life to communicate information. Additionally, how can important data be relveald by nesting, grouping, labeling, and other techniques.

2:15 – 2:45pm: “Mastering Customer Information – Using Graph as a Foundation for the Agile Enterprise” – Aaron Wallace, Principal Product Manager, Pitney Bowes
How does your business build effective strategies when customer information is so difficult to understand? Converting the right data into information to drive effective strategy requires new approaches. Combining best practices around Data Quality, Data Integration and Data Governance with the agility, flexibility and scalability of a graph database provides significant advantages over standard approaches.

2:45 – 3:15pm: “Realistic Deep Learning with Neo4j” – Tom Benedictus, CEO, Trifork & Phil Winder, Trifork
How can we accomplish predictions for purchase recommendation, customer behavior, and fraud detection? Unsupervised Deep Learning is the goal with tools out of the box. This means that we are now commercially providing the solutions that the future is promising. We provide a brief comparison with the human brain and learning patterns known from animals and experiments with re-wirering of humans and animals to benefit from the unexplained ability to build new awareness based on replaced senses.

4:00 – 4:30pm: “Delivering the Most Relevant and Compelling Digital Content to adidas Consumers” – Sokratis Kartelias, Senior Project Manager, adidas
Creating the most compelling content for our consumers and personalizing their experiences with our brands and products is a data driven task. At adidas Group we bring together the different worlds of product data, digital content and consumer preferences, connecting the dots.


12:00 – 12:30pm: “Graph Theory in Practice” – David Simons, Softwire
Graphs have been studied in academic circles since Euler first formalised them in 1735, and since used in a wide range of fields. But how can software solve problems by utilising theories from the academic world? We’ll look at case studies of domains and problems that can be solved using these approaches, and how we can implement them either through our own code or through existing libraries and frameworks.

2:15 – 2:45pm: “Unlock Value from the Connectedness in Existing Relational Data” – Peter Wiles, Chillisoft Solutions
You can unlock value from existing data by translating the normal forms of your relational database into to graph forms without rewriting your transactional system but instead mapping to a graph in batch time (once per day, every hour, or even every minute). In doing so, you can retain all the details of the data while enhancing it with visualisation and connectedness, plus all the power that comes with that.

2:45 – 3:15pm: “The Graph application platform” – Axel Morgner, Structr
Introducing the various aspects of Structr and how businesses can profit from it as their graph application platform, using it for rapid application development, as a Content Management System and Document Database.


Throughout the day: “From Zero to Graph” – Neo Technology Team
Form Zero to Graph is a series of session throughout the whole day that covers topics such as modelling, importing, querying and scaling and will help you take the next step in your graph project. Become a Neo4j expert in one day!

12:00 – 12:30pm: “How we Built Neo4j and What’s Next” – Philip Rathle, Neo Technology
Learn about the development process of Neo4j and get an inside view of the world’s leading graph database. Additionally, see first hand what the future releases will bring to the graph and what to expect of Neo4j in the coming months.
