Mike Hawkes - Curve Jumping - Dgraph to the front

Curve Jumping - Dgraph to the front

The recent pandemic has forced a change towards cloud computing and remote working. Customer experiences have changed as have the operational systems and procedures. In order to support these new models, data integrators have to find the best way to move, link and socialise data.

Conventional data stores don’t work well in these environments. However, graph databases provide mechanisms to link and resolve data queries in a much more flexible and cost-effective way.

Mike explains how Capventis uses Dgraph to help with integration - and how Dgraph has reduced development and data management costs.
