NoSQL Now! 2012

At NoSQL Now! Attendees will learn how graphs can be used to track the complex relationships between people, organizations and events while providing new answers and insights.

DATAVERSITY™ today announced its extensive agenda for its Graph Databases sessions taking place August 21 – 23 at the San Jose Convention Center during the 2012 NoSQL Now! Conference and Expo.

Graph databases are HOT! They're a key NoSQL technology enabling a new class of analytical capabilities which simply hasn’t been available before with conventional database technologies.

For example, graphs can answer questions like:

  •     How will your supply chain be affected by a flood in China?
  •     How does a particular financial product impact your portfolio risk?
  •     What personal relationships exist between government contractors and local politicians?

At NoSQL Now! Attendees will learn how graphs can be used to track the complex relationships between people, organizations and events while providing new answers and insights.

  •     Keynote Presentation on Creating Powerful New Applications with Graphs, Emil Elfrem, CEO of Neo Technology
  •     Tutorial: Introduction to Graph Databases, led by the technical team from InfiniteGraph.
