Graph Databases and the New Wave of Graph Analytics

A report by The Bloor Group

For decades, the relational database has reliably served most data analysis needs. But it’s weak in two areas: complex hierarchical data and processing graphical data structures. Growing volumes of complex and graphical data have revealed the shortcomings of relational databases.

They’re complementary to relational databases, and many have been engineered to scale out and process very large volumes of data.
