While graph databases have become a standard for social networking and recommendation engines, the practical use of graphs in other areas beyond consumer applications is rapidly growing. In this presentation with the support of case studies, we will explore how graph databases can applied to other verticals, such as logistics and healthcare, as well as look at where graphs can leverage other data systems. The presentation will also cover the role of graphs in going beyond predictive analytics to providing prescriptive analytics incorporating decision and effects data.
