The true role graph databases will play in the future of enterprise data management is nuanced. There certainly is value to be gained from a graph database in its ability to get access to poorly attributed data (nodes with little properties) and highly scattered and volatile relationships. However, their role is most beneficial to analytics rather than operational data management. Advanced operational, transaction capabilities, and massive set-based processing will continue to rely on relational databases. The value of Graph Databases lies not in its ability to replace your MDM, but rather in its ability to compliment your MDM and data governance applications when needed. Attendees of this session will learn how graph can complement modern, intelligent MDM solutions and solidify their understanding of how graph databases can be helpful when used in conjunction with a modern MDM tool.
