neo4j-seminar-with-jim-webber-at-ca-foscari-university-of-veniceThursday, November 27th, 2014 at 12:15PM, as part of the celebrations for the tenth anniversary of the company,LARUS Business Automation has organized, in collaboration with Ca’ Foscari University of Venice the seminar entitled “Graph Databases” which is dedicated to students, customers, partners and companies interested in the world of the so-called Polyglot Persistence and in particular in understanding the benefits of using a graph database to persist their own data as an alternative to the more “traditional” RDBMS.

The seminar will be hold by Dr . Jim Webber, Chief Scientist with Neo Technology, the Californian company behind the popular graph database Neo4j. (see more about the speaker profile here).

In addition to introducing the technology Neo4j and principles of modeling the business domain in a graph database, He will present the main experiences in the research field whose He is responsible for at Neo Technology: Performance, High-Availability andScalability will be some of the covered topics. He will also talk about how the design of Neo4j and some future work. (read the abstract here).

I’d like to thank in advance Prof. Renzo OrsiniProf. Salvatore Orlando and of course Dr. Jim Webber for their availability to support us in organising this seminar about the pressing theme of the polyglot persistence”, says Lorenzo Speranzoni, CEO of LARUS BA. “A lot of work has already been done in Information Technology, for example, with the definition of the service-oriented architecture (SOA) – preferably a lightweight one – and of business process management (BPM), but in the field of data management, until the advent of disruptive trends such asBig-Data, Big-User and Cloud Computing, the de-facto standard represented by relational databases wasn’t yet been put into discussion. But today we have the concrete opportunity to choose which technology to adopt to persist information depending on the type of data (size, uniformity, connectedness) and the manner in which you intend to manipulate them: the maturity of the RDBMS alternatives has led us to become the first Italian Solution Partners of Neo Technology.

The seminar will take place on Thursday, November 27th from 12.15PM at the Scientific Campus of Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, Via Torino, 155 – 30170 Mestre (Venice), classroom “B”, building “Zeta”.

The event is for free.

Seminar abstract:

In this seminar, Jim will introduce graph databases and show how they can be used to greatly simplify domain modeling and accelerate system delivery. We will also look under the covers at Neo4j’s design, and consider how the requirements for correctness and performance of connected data drive the architecture. Moving up the stack, we will explore Neo4j’s Cypher query language and show how it can be used to tackle complex scenarios like recommendations in minutes (live!). Finally we will discuss what it means to be a very large graph database and review the dependability requirements to make such a system viable.


Speaker profile:

jim_webberDr. Jim Webber is Chief Scientist with Neo Technology the company behind the popular open source graph database Neo4j, where he works on R&D for highly scalable graph databases and writes open source software. Jim has written two books on integration and distributed systems: “Developing Enterprise Web Services” on XML Web Services and “REST in Practice” on using the Web for building large-scale systems. His latest book is “Graph Databases” which focuses on the Neo4j database.
