I’ll be flying over to San Francisco at the weekend to attend and present at GraphConnect, which takes place at the Hyatt Regency on November 5 and 6.
Specifically, I’ll be giving a presentation on the role of NoSQL and graphs in the total data landscape, subtitled Big Data, Total Data, NoSQL, Graph, at 11.40am on November 6.
Here’s the overview: The database market is changing rapidly with new approaches emerging that provide an alternative to the relational data model. This presentation examines the drivers behind the rise of NoSQL data stores and, in particular graph databases, focusing on their use-cases and adoption trends, and exploring where graph database fit in the world of NoSQL, NewSQL, and big data.
I’ll also be moderating a panel at 5.05pm on November 6 comprised of enterprise companies that use graph databases in production. This panel includes 3-4 technical leads from Accenture, Cisco and Telenor Norway that will discuss what it takes to put large scale graph databases into production.
GraphConnect looks like a great event for anyone with experience with, or just interest in, graph databases. Keynotes will be provided by Emil Eifrém, CEO, Neo Technology, and James Fowler, co-author of Connected: The Surprising Power of Our Social Networks and How They Shape Our Lives.
