This half day t utorial will describe how to design property graph data models. Prope rty Graph data model concepts will be described using the Neo4j database as a reference model. The tutorial concepts will apply to any property graph database.

\nEntity Relationship modeling and relational databas es have dominated the IT scene since the '80s, becoming the defacto sta ndard approach for data persistence. The ubiquitousness of relational datab ases has waned with the advent of NoSQL and big data technologies. A n ew database technology – graph database – h as emerged with a solid set of use cases based on mathematical graph theory and graph algorithms. This tutorial will define how property graph da ta models are constructed using the Neo4j database.

\nKey concepts co vered include:

\n- \n Graph data model overview\n
Translating requirements to property graph designs\n
Differences between traditional Entity Relationship modeling and property
graphs\n
Best and Worst practices in property graph design\n\n

The attendees of t his presentation will gain an appreciation for the differences in property graph design vs. relational and understand the opportunities this new data structure presents.
