Oracle Database 12c now includes property graphs – a powerful feature that goes beyond relational, to analyze relationships in big data, such as finding the most influential people in a social network, discovering patterns of fraud within financial transaction data, or recommending products based on what similar customers are buying. Don’t have the slightest clue on how to get started with and use property graphs? Good news! If you can form a complete sentence (coffee allowed) then you can do this! This hands on lab will show you exactly how to create, load and use property graphs on the Oracle Database. We will cover how to create a property graph using Java or PLSQL, how to load data into a property graph from existing database tables, how to create an in-memory instance of a property graph, how to run algorithms such as page rank against a property graph, how to use PGQL (a sql like language for property graphs) to query a graph and ways to visualize graph data.
