Moviepilot is a home for upcoming movies, and for movie fans around the world.Industry: Media Use Case: Recommendation Engine
Complex DataWhen Ben first started developing Moviepilot, his prior experience had been with MySQL databases. However, upon looking at the massive amount of data required to put the recommendation system into place, the team began to look into databases that could traverse complex data efficiently. After looking at document stores and other NOSQL databases, it soon became clear that Neo4j was the appropriate choice.
“We wanted to quickly connect audiences to the right movies, and Neo4j just fit our philosophical standpoint.”
Success with Neo4jAfter implementing Neo4j, Moviepilot is impressed by the speed that Neo4j traverses and analyzes the data. In using Neo4j for their data, the team has been able to find important data points faster than before.
“We are very happy that we discovered Neo4j. We increased the speed of generating recommendations and users to movies, which is a core part to our business model.”
