Use Cases: Knowledge Graphs

Knowledge Graphs Empower Your Data to Do More

Knowledge graphs codify data, allowing the use of connections to infer new knowledge. This enables exploration, discovery and decision-making by human, software or AI systems.

The World Has Changed.
Knowing Is Half the Battle.

Knowledge Graphs Cityscape

It's no secret that global stresses are straining rigid, inefficient systems to breaking points. The need for rapid reconfiguration of operations and processes is real.

To not only survive but thrive, businesses like yours need to be resilient, nimble and take creative approaches to meet these modern day challenges – using the data you already have on hand.

The good news? The new wave of data-driven advanced analytics and optimization – built on structured data systems created to acquire and integrate adjacent information – is here to help. But taking strides toward digital transformation means you first need to turn data into useful knowledge by storing information in a connected way.

Enter the knowledge graph.

Everything a Knowledge Graph Should Be

Community Detection

Connected & Unifying

Siloed data must be easily traversed to detect and make connections with relevant, related attributes.


Flexible & Dynamic

Easily update schemas and add new data and dynamic auto updates with intelligent labels.


Explainable & Practical

Domain knowledge that's easy to visualize and understand, with the ability to apply it to new situations.

Heuristic Link Prediction

Analytical & Scientific

Deep knowledge is derived from advanced queries, graph algorithms and data science capabilities.

Pathfinding & Search

Performant at Scale

Run graph algorithms at enterprise scale and get fast results for even highly complex queries.

Grow the Impact of
Your Knowledge Graph

Connected City

Knowledge graphs ensure search results are contextually relevant to your needs, but that’s just the beginning.

As more and different types of data are added – and as you write-back analytics results – you're continually enhancing your knowledge graph, increasing its usefulness and value.

Using graph visualization tools like Neo4j Bloom and integrating with BI platforms then empowers you to intuitively explore graphs while sharing graph-based insights to an entirely new audience.

See how Neo4j customers have evolved their knowledge graph for even more positive business impact.

Baseline Knowledge

A knowledge graph is most often used to aggregate and search large volumes of static internal data. Discover how NASA took an astronomical amount of data scattered across the organization to form a knowledge graph – with billions of nodes – so researchers can easily search their "lessons learned" database that stores crucial details from past missions.
