Today’s government agencies – both at home and abroad – are beset by increasingly complex challenges within a more interconnected and ever-shifting political landscape. The technology solutions that ultimately overcome these challenges must harness the power of data connections.
Governments around the world already use graph technology to fight crime, prevent terrorism, improve fiscal responsibility and provide transparency to their citizenry. Often these solutions involve connecting data across different applications or repositories, spanning disparate processes and departments. A flexible, scalable and powerful graph database platform is required to quickly make sense of obscured, divergent data.
A graph database platform reveals data connectedness to achieve your agency’s mission-critical objectives – and so much more.
Using real-world government use cases, the Graphs in Government: Fulfilling Your Mission with Neo4j white paper explains how graph technology solves a broad range of problems that no other technology can.

Why Intelligent Applications Need a Graph Database with Granular Security
Increase Tax Revenue
Graph technology is essential for rooting out tax evasion efforts – often hidden beneath complex and obscured layers of offshore shell companies – whether at home or abroad.
Increase Citizen Engagement
Improved social services and program transparency lead to a more engaged and informed citizenry at all levels of national, regional and local government.
Graph-based tools are foundational in modern fraud detection, terrorism prevention and anti-money laundering (AML) activities.
No database technology handles complex queries as efficiently and fast as a native graph database, and in sensitive intelligence or military scenarios, every millisecond makes a difference between victory or failure.
Ability to Use Most Recent Data
No batch processing is required with a graph database when your application queries real-time transaction data.
Neo4j easily ingests and processes connections from multiple data sources, solving problems with data stored in disparate silos across – or within – government agencies.
Native Graph Database
Unlike relational databases, Neo4j stores interconnected user data that is neither purely linear nor hierarchical. Neo4j’s native graph storage architecture makes it easier to decipher citizen or intelligence data by not forcing intermediate indexing at every turn.
Neo4j’s versatile property graph model makes it easier for government agencies to evolve real-time solutions – whether military, financial or scientific – as data types and sources change.
Performance & Scalability
Neo4j’s native graph processing engine supports high-performance graph queries on large user datasets to enable real-time decision making at every level of government.
The built-in, high-availability features of Neo4j ensure user data is always available to your mission-critical applications.
