Today it’s Neo4j’s turn to announce a new feature that lowers the bar for graph database adoption. Neo4j announced today the Neo4j BI connector, which it dubs the first enterprise-ready driver to bring graph data to the Business Intelligence (BI) market. The connector presents live graph datasets for analysis within popular BI technologies such as Tableau or Looker.
Although Neo4j worked with multiple customers as well as partners like EY to do extensive testing of leading BI and data discovery providers including Tableau and others, the announcement does not include partnerships with such vendors. As David Allen, Neo4j Technology Partner Architect told ZDNet, Neo4j will likely establish more formal partnerships in this area over time as a function of customer and market demand.
