Session Description:
Enterprises that pursue data-driven operations and decisions are approaching the conclusion that graph analysis capabilities yield critical competitive advantages. However, for this impact to be fully realized, the results of any graph analysis must be available, in real time, to operational applications, data scientists and developers across the enterprise.

Tim Williamson and Emil Eifrem draw on Monsanto’s real-world experience to explain how organizations use graph databases to operationalize insights from big data. Tim and Emil discuss Monsanto’s Big Data stack, using examples from Monsanto’s substantial experience with graphs, and describe the service-oriented graph architecture that has already handled over one billion requests and is available to over 150 developers, data scientists and applications throughout Monsanto.
