SAN MATEO, CA, Jan 11, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Neo Technology, creators of Neo4j, the world's leading graph
database, today announced that it is a winner of the prestigious
IDG's InfoWorld 2013 Technology of the Year Award. The award
recognizes the best and most innovative products in the hardware and
software categories that matter to businesses and IT professionals.
"When your data is structured but the relationships among the data
are as important as the data itself, you may be better served by a
graph database," said Andrew Oliver, contributor to InfoWorld. "Neo4j
makes connections between data elements intrinsic to each element.
For many types of systems, such as recommendation engines, social,
scientific, and 'friend of a friend' calculations, Neo4j is the right
fit. If you're self-joining tables and walking down row by row, this
is probably the answer you've been looking for."
"The Technology of the Year Awards are not merely the best 'products'
in their class," said Douglas Dinely, Executive Editor/Test Center,
InfoWorld. "These are the tools at the leading edge of technology
innovation -- the ones that are shaping the way we work and do
Neo4j was hand selected from hundreds of products reviewed, tested,
worked with, explored, and relied upon by the InfoWorld Test Center
over the course of the past year. Winners represent not only the
best, but also the most innovative, timely and fun products that
judges don't want to imagine living without.
"The world's most innovative companies -- Google, Facebook, Twitter,
Adobe and American Express among them -- have turned to graph
technologies to tackle the complexity at the heart of their data,"
said Emil Eifrem, CEO of Neo Technology. "It is awesome to be
publicly recognized as an innovator and leader in this market. With
our market validation, proven technology leadership, and the
thousands of developers all over the world using Neo4j, 2013 will be
the year of the graph."
