Mingxi Wu and Yu Xu offer an overview of TigerGraph, a high-performance enterprise graph data platform that enables businesses to transform structured, semistructured, and unstructured data and massive enterprise data silos into an intelligent interconnected data network, allowing them to uncover the implicit patterns and critical insights to drive business growth.
Mingxi and Yu detail TigerGraph’s complete technology architecture and discuss the key advantages of the platform, including fast data loading, high-performance parallel execution of graph algorithms, real-time capability for streaming updates and inserts using REST, a unified environment for both real-time analytics and large-scale offline data processing, and a complete high-level SDK with intuitive visualization product. (Users of the platform benefit significantly by using an SQL-like graph query language (GSQL) while inherently getting the ideal performance on big data.) Mingxi and Yu then share case studies on how two China-based enterprise customers in the telecom and finance industries are using the platform to dramatically improve their business outcome.
