Over the last decade, organizations across industries have adopted graph databases to solve business challenges and create meaningful insights quickly.
Industry-leading corporations, small to medium enterprises and startup firms are leveraging the power of Neo4j’s graph data platform for use cases ranging from knowledge graphs to fraud prevention to master data management.
In this panel discussion, you’ll hear how to leverage the performance and scalability of Neo4j’s graph data platform from Neo4j customers and expert panelists including Liz Maida, Co-founder & CEO at Uplevel Security, Michal Bachman, CEO at GraphAware, David Allen, Technology Partner Architect at Neo4j, and Lance Walter, Neo4j CMO.
Liz Maida is a Co-Founder and CEO of Uplevel Security, recently acquired by McAfee. She has served in multiple executive roles, focusing on tech strategy and new product development. While working at Akamai, she contributed to their cloud-based web application firewalls and analytics engine leveraging Akamai’s visibility by nearly 30%.
Liz holds a Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree from Princeton and dual Master’s Degree in Computer Science and Engineering Systems from MIT. Her graduate school research examined the application of graph theory to network interconnection.
