Graph databases solve a lot of complex relationship problems that relational databases struggle to support. Relational databases are optimized for capturing data and answering transactional data questions. Graph databases are highly optimized for answering questions about data relationships.

 In this session you will learn which data stories are the right fit for your relational stores, and which are the right fit for graph databases. You will learn options for bringing this data together for more intelligent data solutions.
