Title: Demystifying Graph and Scalable Graph Database System: The TigerGraph Perspective
Abstract: Gartner predicts that data and analytics innovations fueled by graph technology will increase 7x by 2025, and 30% of organizations worldwide will use graph databases technologies in the decision-making process by 2023. However, even though graph database technologies have been around for 15+ years, it has mostly been in the past till now as a niche play, limited to advanced R&D and early exploration on small datasets.
In this talk, I will share how state-of-art scalable graph database like TigerGraph is crossing the chasm and becoming the next generation big data technology that enterprises can rely on for mission critical advanced analytics and graph machine learning use cases. I will cover latest progress in graph data model, graph query language, advanced graph analytics and graph machine learning and graph database benchmarking, as well as highly scalable MPP graph database architecture using TigerGraph as the example. In particular, I will dive deeper into how TigerGraph cracked the 36TB LDBC benchmark on a big graph consisting 75B+ nodes and 500B+ edges.
