According to a new article out of the company, “Neo Technology, creator of the world’s leading graph database, Neo4j, announced the conclusion of its largest and most successful GraphConnect San Francisco conference yet. Held last month, customers, partners and industry leaders from across the globe gathered to share insights and best practices on the latest trends and applications of graph database technology in the enterprise and beyond. ‘The growth of GraphConnect is amazing, and it continues to be the single must-attend event for anyone and everyone interested in graph technology,’ said Emil Eifrem, CEO of Neo Technology. ‘As we wrap up our largest GraphConnect yet with more than 1,000 attendees, it’s clear that graphs are eating the world. As this year’s speakers demonstrated, graphs are impacting every industry vertical, allowing organizations to make the most of their connected data’.”

The article continues, “A keynote by Emil Eifrem announced the launch of the openCypher project — a game-changing, open source initiative with the potential to have the same kind of impact that SQL had for relational databases. openCypher is supported by industry leaders including Oracle, Databricks — the company behind Apache Spark, Tableau and others. Eifrem also unveiled Neo4j 2.3, Neo’s fastest graph database yet, and a new collaboration with IBM to offer the most scalable graph platform ever with Neo4j on POWER8. Neo Chief Scientist Jim Webber presented on why graphs are the supermodel for data — including non-graph data structures. He also discussed how Cypher on Spark is set to impact the future graph space and how graph databases are poised to further disrupt organizations across every vertical.”
