Neo Technology has announced the general availability of the Neo4j 2.1, featuring built-in ETL designed to make it easier to bring data in from relational databases and other data sources.
Neo4j 2.1 sets out to enable users to bring their existing data into Neo4j and use “the power of the graph” to leverage the connections in the data. The new functionality provides methods for mapping tabular data into Neo4j from CSV files, and runs up to 100 times faster than previously existing methods.
The use of graph databases continues to broaden and accelerate. Forrester estimates that over 25 percent of enterprises will be using a graph database by 2017.
