A Practical Guide to Enterprise Metadata Handling in Data Driven Environments

Neo4j has proven to be an enterprise-grade graph store and graph management system. Using the wiki-based knowledge graph as a blueprint for business knowledge management, we developed our Etosha toolbox to manage technical metadata with a business directory that links technical records and human knowledge. This leads to higher efficiency in our data exploration and data science procedures.

In this presentation, we will demonstrate our collaboration tools by running them in two modes — locally on a single workstation and as a distributed environment across organizations — and will review the architecture of the underlying software.
