Business, HR, sustainable development, cybercrime, AI… 2022, the year of graph databases?

Through their flexibility, graph databases open up a field of possibilities for new operational applications. Analyzing the connected data but also the many interactions between all the elements of the same database gives users additional keys to understanding and offers them a clear view of the issues and forces involved.

Therefore, 2022 is shaping up to be an important year in terms of data processing reliability, both in terms of analytical performance and predictive capabilities, to act quickly, with agility and relevance. Regardless of the field, graph databases play a role. To better understand their growing importance, here are some of the big issues to watch out for this year:

Fairer options in sustainable development approaches

The adequacy and effectiveness of corporate social responsibility policies is increasingly in doubt. The recommendations generated by the graphs facilitate the identification of the most effective levers, for example in the carbon footprint, to ensure the strategic relevance of the actions taken over time. They guide decision making in the short, medium and long term, thus helping companies organize themselves better on a day-to-day basis and stay on course on their sustainable growth goals.

Better hope for job well-being

Coming out of the pandemic, job well -being requires a sound HR policy, but also a set of technological tools for accurate data management that are now available in HRIS. Graph databases, for example, help to better predict burnout by highlighting clusters of warning signs, making it possible to prevent a possible exacerbation at an earlier stage. Finally they bring the additional level of analysis that connects the person more with his environment.

A change in talent management

The lack of talent and the growing recruitment difficulties faced by companies necessitate a change in employment relationships. Employees should feel supported in their missions, their working methods should be optimized, especially by providing simple tools that allow them to devote themselves to tasks with more that additional value. The graph databases offer an accurate representation of the areas for improvement following this technique and bring out all the issues to be addressed to improve the working environment in the long run.

A stronger response to cybercrime

Whether we like it or not, cybercrime is now an integral part of our daily lives, both individually and collectively. A plague that is increasingly difficult to curb in the face of more attacks (+13% in 2021), at all levels of intensity and increasing sophistication. Database graphs are able to detect the most complex attacks by processing a very high number of data interconnections, which helps identify patterns associated with fraudulent practices. Thus, they bring to cybercrime combat structures an important sharpness of analysis to better predict and act as quickly as possible.

More confidence in artificial intelligence

AI is gradually moving into our lives to make many actions or tasks easier and faster. However, it still suffers from a lack of confidence associated, among other things, with the lack of explanation of AI options, doubts about the reliability of the data used or the slow adaptation of actors in the face of growing demand for more. responsible use .. Graph databases and “graph data science” represent a real trust accelerator for artificial intelligence. They make it possible to highlight the path that allows the AI ​​to choose rather than others and thus give confidence to the user by choosing the right algorithms. Graph databases provide context that enhances AI efficiency, as it is easier for a machine, for example, to identify a coffee cup in an image if it is placed next to a machine in a coffee maker than on a computer scientist desk.

Increased efficiency of technologies and working methods

Business activities of all sizes and sectors are closely linked to digital technologies. Here again, graph databases are a major operational asset. With the advent of the cloud, they enable detailed analyzes that strengthen operational agility, flexibility, effective cost management and decision making. For the supply chain as in risk management, they provide visibility that serves both transparency, efficiency, reliability and the right balance between supply and demand. Applied to working methods, they make it possible, for example, to move from a collaborative “DevOps” logic to a “NoOps” logic, for better and faster decisions. Finally, in the world of crypto-currencies, they make it possible to manage risk more effectively.

Brands that are closer to their community

Brands have realized the importance of ensuring the growth of their community and its day-to-day animation. The position of “Chief Community Officer” is increasingly part of the organizational charts of companies wishing to ensure the continuity of their brand and maintain a competitive advantage. Graph databases allow these new executives to have an overview of their communities and analyze the links that drive them from every angle.

They improve targeted marketing actions but also the development of new products or services, and radically optimize strategic and operational decision making through better knowledge of multi-channel data networks. formed by its communities.

For all these reasons, we can say that graph databases are destined to gain momentum in all sectors where reliability and efficiency are of particular importance. Decision making will be simpler and safer in a world where agility and speed of action are essential conditions for success!
