Property Graphs vs. Knowledge Graphs

January 5, 2022

One of the greatest strengths of graph databases is their ability to treat “relationships” between the data as being as important as the data itself. They show a visual image of a graph in response to queries. Graph databases are designed to hold data without restricting it to a fixed, predetermined model. As a consequence, graph databases are very good at managing complex research queries.

Using a query and a starting point, graph databases search the surrounding data — collecting and accumulating information from thousands of nodes and relationships — while leaving any data outside of the search perimeter alone.
