Use Cases: Neo4j for Graph Data Science

Improve predictions using existing network structures

Today’s businesses are faced with extremely complex challenges and opportunities that require more flexible, intelligent approaches.

That’s why Neo4j created the first enterprise graph framework for data scientists – to improve predictions that drive better decisions and innovation.

Neo4j for Graph Data Science incorporates the predictive power of relationships and network structures in existing data to answer previously intractable questions and increase prediction accuracy.

Neo4j for Enterprise Graph Data Science

From pointers to patterns to predictions, only Neo4j offers such breadth and depth of advanced graph analytics and data science capabilities in an integrated enterprise environment.

Our efficient property graph model stores nodes and their corresponding relationships together, so you just follow the pointers for real-time queries. The Neo4j graph algorithms inspect global structures to find important patterns and now, with graph embeddings and graph database machine learning training inside of the analytics workspace, we can make predictions about your graph.

Neo4j for Graph Data Science is comprised of the following products:

  • Neo4j Graph Data Science Library

    A toolkit with a flexible data structure for analytics and a library with five varieties of powerful graph algorithms.

  • Neo4j Graph Database

    A highly scalable, native graph database, purpose built to persist and protect relationships.

  • Neo4j Bloom

    A graph visualization and exploration tool that allows users to visualize algorithm results and find patterns using codeless search.

Graph Data Science helps businesses across industries leverage highly predictive, yet largely underutilized relationships and network structures to answer unwieldy problems.

Neo4j for Graph Data Science Industry applications

Examples include user disambiguation across multiple platforms and contacts for more personalized services and marketing, identifying early interventions for complicated patient journeys to improve outcomes, and predicting fraud through sequences of seemingly innocuous behavior.

To accomplish these goals, organizations explore the results of graph algorithms and then use predictive features for further analysis, machine learning or to support AI systems. With this approach, Neo4j customers are demonstrating that graphs bring tremendous value to advanced analytics, machine learning and AI.

Business Outcomes

Improve Predictions

Incorporating the predictive power of relationship in advanced analytics and machine learning enables you to continually improve predictive accuracy.

Answer Intractable Questions

Graph algorithms are a subset of data science algorithms created to analyze network structures so you can better understand complex systems and answer more complicated questions.

Confidently Operationalize

Using an industry leader to add graph based features to existing data science pipelines is a low-risk way to put more accurate models into production faster.


Limited Data

Analytics and machine learning requires a lot of data to increase accuracy but most models today aren’t using their existing data about relationships and network structures.


Data science is inherently iterative so it’s essential to use a framework that brings in highly predictive relationships while streamlining the process of moving from data to analysis to visualization and back.

Lack of Scale and Support

Data scientists need enterprise scale, productions features and dedicated data science support that includes packaged and tested algorithms.

Why Neo4j?

Scalable Graph Analytics

Neo4j Graph Data Science library creates a friendly analytics workspace with powerful graph algorithms that can operate over 10’s of billions of nodes and relationships.
