GraphConnect NY 2017 highlights

GraphConnect NY 2017 was the largest graph database conference to date with over 1200+ attendees representing the Neo4j community, partners, graph database experts, customers, sponsors, and more. Read some of the highlights:

“ You might not know it, but you use graph databases all the time. It is the database that shows you the connections between you and your friends on Facebook, or when you’re shopping online finds you other products you might be interested in based on what you bought. It’s actually a very important technology, especially in an age of growing amounts of data precisely because it is built to find connections in the data that might not otherwise be readily apparent.” – TechCrunch

“More broadly, Neo4j is targeting a broader range of users – going beyond the data scientists to line-of-business managers – and wants to get a better foothold in enterprise. But it also marks a shift in the ten-year-old company’s outlook.” – The Register

“The new Native Graph Platform applies a connection-first approach to data query, visualization and analysis data to make graph technology meaningful to a broader range of users. The new version boosts performance as much as 55 percent over the previous release through expanded use of native indexing, a refactoring of the native Cypher query interpreter and faster write and update performance.” – SiliconANGLE
