The LDBC consortium is pleased to announce its 10th Technical User Community (TUC) meeting. The event will take place on the 1st of September in Munich where the VLDB (Very Large Data Bases) 43rd international conference takes also place.
The venue information, call for papers and more details will be communicated in the following weeks.
We encourage everyone form the Graph Databases and RDF community to book their agendas!
GRADES is sponsored by LDBC, as the workshop aims to stimulate research and development of new graph data management technologies, the sharing of user experience and new graph data management scenarios, as well as indeed performance benchmarking of these systems. All these topics, and specifically the latter are also in the scope of LDBC.
Juan Sequeda, Co-founder of Capsenta, gave an interesting talk on how can we integrate data using graphs and semantics (semantic data virtualization). As Mr. Sequeda said, the idea is to integrate data without needing to move it around. Juan started off his presentation talking about the huge gap that exists between the IT departments, guardians of the data and the business development departments, trying to extract insights about the data. He used a clear example to illustrate this gap:
During the 8th TUC Meeting held at Oracle’s facilities in Redwood City, California, Zhe Wu, Software Architect at Oracle Spatial and Graph, explained how is his team trying to bridge RDF Graph and Property Data Models.
After making a brief overview about what is a graph he presented Oracle’s Graph strategy, they basically treat graphs as another data type on every platform (Hadoop, Oracle’s own database and, of course, in the Cloud). He also explained that his team is developing in 3 directions at the same time:
