Traditionally, business intelligence (BI) solutions have been built on relational databases and employ very well-established technology. They are used for reporting and for predictive analytics, identifying patterns of behavior that indicate fraud, for example. Graph databases, conversely, show connections and relationships among entities and are used in such applications as LinkedIn and Facebook.
