Business Outcomes

Real-time responsiveness

Whether your AI solution is chatting with customers or driving an autonomous vehicle, real-time feedback loops are essential for meaningful machine learning that evolves your intelligence models.

Evolves with business requirements

In the emergent industry of AI, business and user requirements are still being defined, tweaked or completely upended. The graph data model is more agile and flexible than a traditional RDBMS in meeting these new and changing requirements.


Disparate (and changing) data sources

Your machine learning algorithms consume data from a variety of ever-changing sources and data types, meaning you need a database with a versatile and adaptable schema.

Multiple hop queries

In order to determine context for the most appropriate action, AI solutions must query several layers deeper within their databases than previous technologies required. This means the database layer must be able to support multi-hop (4+) queries without affecting performance.

Why Neo4j?

Native graph store

Neo4j natively stores interconnected data – neither linear nor purely hierarchical – so it’s easier to decipher your data.

Flexible schema

Our versatile property graph model makes it easier for organization to evolve machine learning and AI models.

Performance and scalability

Neo4j supports high-performance graph queries on large datasets enabling real-time AI solutions.
