Neo4j honored to earn a spot on this year’s InfoWorld Bossie Awards for the best open source software for data storage and analytics
Neo4j, the original graph database, is vastly more efficient than SQL or NoSQL databases for tasks that look at networks of related items, but the graph model and Cypher query language require learning. Neo4j recently proved itself valuable yet again in the analysis of Russian Twitter trolls , and of the ICIJ’s Panama Papers and Paradise Papers.
After 18 years of development, Neo4j is a mature graph database platform that you can run on Windows, MacOS, and Linux, in Docker containers, in VMs, and in clusters. Neo4j can handle very large graphs, even in its open source edition, and unlimited graph sizes in its enterprise edition.
