‘What About Our Relationship?’ The Power of Graph

In the 1984 cult classic, “Repo Man,” the heroine Olivia Barash asks of hero Emilio Estevez, “What about our relationship?!” His response is not very romantic. Serious DM Radio fans know that our intro and outro music comes from the “Repo Man” soundtrack, specifically, Reel 10 by “The Plugz.” What brought all those great actors together? Probably karma, but these days, it could happen via graph technology. The powerful relationship-finding software uses nodes and edges to identify important relationships, like who knows whom, and where the key influencers are. “It’s all part of the plan!”

The Power of Graph Technology for Marketing Medicine

For more complex products such as new pharmaceutical drugs, medical equipment or healthcare treatments, identifying hubs of influencers among physicians and other healthcare providers requires deep analysis of patient claims data to uncover the referral relationships.

Traditional analytics solutions built on relational databases require expensive joins among large tables containing prescriber, claims and patient data. It can take hours, sometimes days, to complete the database joins. This makes traditional analytics solutions unsuitable for this type of analysis.

Graph technology makes uncovering referral relationships much easier, as the patient, prescriber and claims data is pre-connected in the graph database.

Why Experts See Graph Databases Headed for Mainstream Use

In naming graph DBs one of the 10 biggest data and analytics trends of 2019, Gartner predicted that the category will grow a whopping 100 percent annually through 2022 “due to the need to ask complex questions across complex data, which is not always practical or even possible at scale using SQL queries.” Believe the prognosticators or don’t believe them, the movement is in fact here, and the DBs are being sold.

A good data point here is that graph databases are being used in multiple industries, including financial services, pharmaceutical, health care, telecom, retail and government.

GSQL for Cypher Users

A common question from the TigerGraph prospects who know Cypher and want to learn GSQL is “Do you have an example of the movie database from Neo4j?”. So, I thought it would be interesting to share an implementation of that movie database in GSQL as a learning resource. The idea is to provide a bridge for existing Cypher users to GSQL.

The Third Generation of Graph Databases

The graph database, very simply, is a database that recognizes the “relationships” between data to be as important as the data itself. A graph database is designed to hold data while not limiting it to a pre-established model. The data in such a database shows how each individual entity is connected with or related to others. A graph database “natively” embraces relationships while other databases compute relationships at the time of query using JOIN operations. A graph database stores its connections with the data in the model. In their early years, graph databases were “generally” regarded as a type of NoSQL or non-relational database, which were created to address the limitations of relational databases, but they’ve graphs have matured past such delineations and are considered their own type of innovative database technology.

How to transform healthcare with real-time deep link analytics? Graph databases

Native parallel graph databases combine these three types of data in real time to deliver the four strategic imperatives. They deliver consistently high quality of care while controlling costs; detect and prevent waste and abuse; link public data with internal data to improve healthcare outcomes; and improve net promoter scores.

Rising healthcare costs is a complex issue with many causes. But native parallel graph databases are just what the doctor ordered to cure some of the contributing factors.

Could graph technology reduce the risk of another economic collapse?

Why is graph technology such a step forward? Virtually all existing risk assessment and monitoring systems are built on traditional relational databases, which store information such as counterparty, account, transaction, stakeholders, financial instruments and derivatives in separate tables, one for each type of business entity.
