From staying agile in risk and compliance, to fraud detection, and capturing a 360° view of customer data, financial institutions around the world have begun to use graph databases to achieve competitive advantages.

Rather than update data manually across silos, today's leading financial organisations use Neo4j to unite data silos into a federated metadata model, enabling them to trace and analyse their data hollistically across the enterprise as well as update their models in real time. Neo4j graph technology makes such connected data analysis simple and efficient.

Learn more about the power of graph databases for the Finance sector during our live stream on 5th November. We are pleased to invite you to hear Ruben Menke at Banking Circle talking about how they leverage Neo4j.

Over the years he regularly discovered the need for data relationship analysis and the business operational limitations their non-existence cause in almost every industry and IT project he was involved in. This made him think that there must be something out there that resolves these limitations and he discovered the power of graph data technologies as viable and performant approach. His fascination for state-of-the-art IT technologies even spreads into his other passion, digitalised model trains.
