Bloor Research Positions AllegroGraph as a ‘Champion’ in Burgeoning Graph Database Market

Graph Databases Identified as the Fastest Growing Segment of the Database Market

OAKLAND, Calif. — May 5, 2015 — Franz, Inc., the leading supplier of Semantic Graph Database technology, today announced its flagship product, AllegroGraph, has been named a Champion by Bloor Research in its recent Graph Database Market Update report. AllegroGraph is a high performance Semantic Graph Database that enables analytics by leveraging the W3C industry standards. Graph databases are skyrocketing in popularity and have grown by 400% in the past two years, according to a recent DBMS ranking by DB-Engines.

“We are excited that Graph and RDF Databases are beginning to get the attention that they deserve,” said Dr. Jans Aasman, CEO, Franz Inc. “In today’s data-driven environments, the ability to quickly analyze data from diverse sources is becoming critical. We are already seeing how Semantic Graph Databases with predictive analytics can help transform healthcare through Precision Medicineand make us safer through Insider Threat Detection.”

“Graph databases handle a class of issues that are too structured for NoSQL and too diverse for relational technologies,” according to Bloor Research. “Relational databases are inherently limited to one-to-one, many-to-one and one-to-many relationships. They do not cater well for problems (such as bill of materials – a classic case) that are many-to-many. For these types of requirements graph databases not only perform way better than relational databases, but they allow some types of query that are simply not possible otherwise. Semantic query support tends to be particularly strong in triple stores. Another major point is that research suggests that graph visualizations are very easy and intuitive for users.” (Source: Bloor Research, Graph Databases, Philip Howard, April 13, 2015)
