What is IBM Graph?

IBM Graph unleashes the power of data connections by letting you store, query, and visualize data points, connections, and properties in a property graph –as an enterprise-grade IBM service. Build better recommendation and fraud detection engines, without managing an on-premises database.

IBM Graph performant

Graph databases are performant

Modern enterprise applications demand that performance improves, even as data and query complexity increase.

So your enterprise app can handle intensive data relationship magnitudes faster than traditional databases—even with complex queries.
