We see a rise in graph and data visualization activity across market segments including automotive, aerospace and defense, geospatial intelligence, enterprise network and IT Infrastructure, and model-based engineering. For example, at Big Data Paris 2017, Airbus outlined their innovative approach to model-based systems engineering (MBSE) using graph and data visualizations. To support MBSE, they use Tom Sawyer Perspectives to integrate diverse data sourcesand synchronize views so architects, engineers, and business managers can collaborate and streamline the design and manufacture of aircraft.

Neo4j Bolt Support and Geospatial Maps in Tom Sawyer Perspectives, Version 7.6 Aid Intelligence, Security, and Speed

We’re thrilled to announce that Tom Sawyer Perspectives, Version 7.6 for Java and .NET were made available last week. Version 7.6 introduces new Tom Sawyer Maps, support for the OpenLayers map API and the Neo4j Bolt protocol, and performance enhancements.

The intelligence community, network security managers, systems engineers, and architects share a common need—to see entities (people, places, things, and events) on geospatial maps. In addition they need to see logical drawings and schematics of the entities and relationships between them over time. Creating visualizations of all of this connected data on an ordinary geographic map is hard to do and the maps can get messy and extremely difficult to read.  Read More “Neo4j Bolt Support and Geospatial Maps in Tom Sawyer Perspectives, Version 7.6 Aid Intelligence, Security, and Speed”

What Do Big Data Paris and the Panama Papers Have In Common?

We’re back from an exciting week at Big Data Paris 2017 where we were featured by our customer Airbus in their presentation on enterprise big data integration and graph visualizations.  We were delighted to meet up with our Neo Technology France and UK partners and had a great turnout for our workshop on Airbus and Twitter big data. 

At our booth, in addition to the very cool Airbus GAIA demonstration on a two meter-wide multi-touch screen, fraud detection, criminal investigations, and networking
were the hot topics. Our crime network and Panama Papers demos were very popular with attendees looking for big data and graph visualization technology.
