Neo4j - New Tool in my Technology Arsenal

Brief About Neo4j

Understanding the Data is the key to all systems and depicting analytical Models on that data, which is built on paradigm of real world entities and relationships, are the success stories of large-scale Enterprise systems.

Architects/ developers and Data scientist have been struggling hard to derive the real world models and relationships from discrete and disparate systems which consist of structured/ un-structured data.
We would all agree that without any relationships data is useless. If we cannot derive relationships between entities then it will be of little or of no use. After all - It’s all about the connections in the data

Let us introduce a different form of database, which focusses on relationships between the entities rather than the entities itself – Neo4J.

Neo4J as NoSQL Database leverages the theory of Graphs. Neo4j is an open-source Graph database implemented in Java.

Its first version (1.0) was released in February 2010 and since then it has never stopped. It is amazing to see the pace at which the Neo4j has evolved over the years. At the time of writing this book, the current stable version is 2.2, released in March-2015.
