Too Long; Didn't Read

Graph Databases represent an innovative, powerful approach to solving the problem of connected data in a way that is closer to how we as humans think about data. A recent survey by DATAVERSITY indicated almost twenty-five percent of companies intend to use graph databases in the next two years. Nodes represent things or objects in the domain (often nouns) while relationships indicate how they interact and relate to each other. This is possible because graphs treat relationships as first class citizens and their role in the database is just as important, sometimes even more so, than the nodes they’re connecting.
