Overall Satisfaction with Neo4j

[Neo4j] is being used on the commercial side of our organization to help create network maps and see relationships between customers or end-users. I am not sure if other areas of the business are using it at the moment. I would say it is still in its infancy at our company, though.
  • Show relationships between different data points
  • Visualize network maps
  • Show stronger influencers
  • Be quicker at processing data
  • Have less lagging when interacting with the network map
  • Be able share with other users on a server
  • Ability to illustrate networks
  • Page rank algorithm to explore influence
  • Explore relationships
  • Show insights where conventional methods failed to do so
  • Point out main customers or touch points that require more attention
  • Work towards a more networked frame of mind
I have not used anything like Neo4J because of how unique it is in the work that it allows me to do. I am not aware of any other graph database platforms and it might be because it is a growing area (especially in the world of pharmaceuticals). I would be open to trying other softwares though.

Do you think Neo4j delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Neo4j's feature set?

Yes

Did Neo4j live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Neo4j go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Neo4j again?

Yes

Neo4J is great for creating network graphs or illustrating how things are related. It is also good for finding individuals or things that have greater influence than others in a system. It is not appropriate if you have standard data sets that can be analyzed using conventional methods or visualized using Tableau, for example.
