A recent article out of the company reports, “Franz Inc., the leading supplier of Semantic Graph Database technology, today announced that the company has added patented N-dimensional analysis capabilities to its flagship product, AllegroGraph, marking the first time data scientists can answer complex SPARQL queries across multiple dimensions over billions of records in sub-second time. This technologic breakthrough is propelling new applications in areas such as Personalized Medicine, Insider Threat Detection, National Intelligence, Defense, Cyber Security and Law Enforcement.”
The article goes on, “AllegroGraph is the first Graph Database to support analysis across N-dimensions – any conceivable measurement of an object, property or operation. For example, AllegroGraph can analyze temporal (time) and geospatial (location) dimensions relative to any ‘event,’ such as a disease, drug interaction, genetic combination, sound, temperature, image, social media post or physical sensor.”
Robin Bloor, co-founder and Chief Analyst of The Bloor Group, commented, “You can capture event data, even multi-dimensional event data, in any data store… The real need is to store and manage the data in an intelligent way and to build applications on top of it. This is where AllegroGraph (from Franz Inc.) shines. It is an RDF Graph database – although in my view, it is best thought of as a platform that is particularly suited for building apps that process event data.”
