Neo Technology CEO: What is Graph Database by Adrian Bridgewater
Emil Eifrem, CEO of Neo4j, states, “Graph databases are part of this movement.

They can uncover patterns that are difficult to detect using traditional representations such as tables. It may be a social graph; it may be going from point A to point B; or it may be product recommendations, where you want to know what else was bought by the people who bought similar things to you.
