How a graph database allows Shutl to deliver even faster
|Session Type||Case Study
Leveraging connected data is becoming more and more important in the development of today’s modern web and business applications – as demonstrated by, for example, Facebook’s recent release of ‘Graph Search.’ There are many questions on the technology and potential of graph databases to meet this need. This session provides a candid look at how we at Shutl selected and implemented graph database Neo4j. Our challenge was to build a new API to cope with the rapid growth the business experienced that would have been extremely difficult with traditional database approaches.
