Neo4j in the News – Spring Edition: Cloud, Graph Analytics, and the Next Decade of Graph



It’s exciting to think about the fact that we’ve officially put the year 2020 behind us and are already three months into 2021!

While the pandemic is still around and many of us are continuing to adjust to the “new normal,” there does seem to be a possible end on the horizon. And while businesses have been faced with numerous challenges over the past 12 months, the acceleration of innovation shows little sign of slowing down.

Much of the discussion so far has revolved around the topic of graphs in the cloud. Companies like Levi Strauss & Co., Boston Scientific, ADEO, and Worldline have adopted our fully managed graph database for cloud developers – Neo4j Aura Enterprise – to build applications for recommendation engines, supply chain management, digital transformation, and more.

The need to tackle major issues, such as fraud rings and the support of tech and data on building diversity in the workplace, also continue to emerge.

I’ve noticed that, as graph technology continues to become more prevalent and grow into its own unique category, more developers, data scientists, and business owners are wondering how they can apply it, what trends drive such interest in various industries, and what’s next.

With that said, here’s a “highlight reel” of standout media coverage so far this year:
