Gartner includes Graph as Trend #5 in its Top 10 Data and Analytics Technology Trend for 2019. And graphs continuing to make waves in the real world in every possible way.
The graph community may have had a gravitational wave moment in March 2019 in Berlin. At the W3C Workshop on Web Standardization for Graph Data, a number of important things seem to have happened: the property graph community taking the first steps towards standardization, the RDF community taking the first steps to resolve the long-standing issue of reification, and both communities taking the first steps towards working with each other.
Graph Data Standardization: It’s Just a Graph Making Gravitational Waves in the Real WorldAWS, Google, Neo4j, Oracle. These were just some of the vendors represented in the W3C workshop on web standardization for graph data, and what transcribed is bound to boost adoption of the hottest segment in data management: graphs. After including Knowledge Graphs in its Hype Cycle in August 2018, Gartner now includes graphs as Trend #5 in its Top 10 Data and Analytics Technology Trend for 2019: “The application of graph processing and graph DBMSs will grow at 100 percent annually through 2022 to continuously accelerate data preparation and enable more complex and adaptive data science.”
