Loading of over 1 Trillion RDF Triples

Franz Inc., a leading supplier of Graph Database technology, with critical support from Stillwater SuperComputing Inc. and Intel, today announced it has achieved its goal of being the first to load and query a NoSQL database with a trillion RDF statements. RDF (also known as triples or quads), the cornerstone of the Semantic Web, provides a more flexible way to represent data than relational database and is at the heart of the W3C push for the Semantic Web.

Dr. Aasman point out: “NoSQL databases like Hadoop and Cassandra fail on joins. Big Enterprise, big web companies and big government intelligence organizations are all looking into big data to work with massive amounts of semi-unstructured data. They are finding that NoSQL databases are wonderful if one needs access to a single object in an ocean of billions of objects, however, they also find that the current NoSQL databases fall short if you need to run graph database operations that require many complicated joins. A typical example would be performing a social network analysis query on a large telecom call detail record database.”


Enterprise Social Media Analytics with Atlas for Connections

The key benefits from deploying an enterprise social media software are to improve

  • customer satisfaction by building stronger relationships with customers,
  • staff effectiveness by simplifying access to existing internal expertise,
  • staff retention by allowing employees to build a stronger network and stronger relationships within the enterprise.

Atlas for IBM Lotus Connections is a social networking application, available from IBM Software Services for Lotus (ISSL), that allows users to visualize their current network of contacts and see how they can efficiently extend that network to tap into valuable resources and trusted experts across an entire organization.

Atlas enables these capabilities by accessing information from the different components of Lotus Connections. When users log in to their dashboard, Atlas compiles and displays information that will help them better understand the company’s professional networks and who they can tap into these networks to increase their effectiveness day in and day out.

With the help of these different components, Atlas allows users to:

  • visualize and analyze social networks in an organization,
  • identify the shortest path to reach someone,
  • find expertise across extended networks,
  • visualize and manage their personal networks.
