Relationships in data often look far more like a web than an orderly set of rows and columns. Graph databases shine when it comes to revealing valuable insights within complex, interconnected data such as demographics, financial records, or computer networks. In Graph Databases in Action, experts Dave Bechberger and Josh Perryman illuminate the design and implementation of graph databases in real-world applications. You’ll learn how to choose the right database solutions for your tasks, and how to use your new knowledge to build agile, flexible, and high-performing graph-powered applications!
Isolated data is a thing of the past! Now, data is connected, and graph databases—like Amazon Neptune, Microsoft Cosmos DB, and Neo4j—are the essential tools of this new reality. Graph databases represent relationships naturally, speeding the discovery of insights and driving business value.
Graph Databases in Action introduces you to graph database concepts by comparing them with relational database constructs. You’ll learn just enough theory to get started, then progress to hands-on development. Discover use cases involving social networking, recommendation engines, and personalization.
