“GraphDB Enterprise is a high-performance semantic repository created by Ontotext. It is implemented.”

OverallNA
ProsGraph database seem to be tailor-mode for networking applications. 1. The prototypical example is a social network,where nodes represent users who have various kinds of relationships to each other.Modeling this kind of data using any of the other styles is offten a tough fit,but a graph database would accept it with relish. 2.They are also perfect matches for a object-oriented system. 3.The Model in a graph database is easier to change than in a relation database. if the type of relationship in an RDBMS changes e.g from 1:N to M:N I need to use DDL to change the model, which may require downtime. I don't have this problem in a graph database where changing the relationships/edges between vertices is much easier.
Cons1. Graph Database not much connectors. 2. Because of the high degree of interconnectedness between nodes,graph database are generall not suitable for network patitioning. 3. Graph databases don't scale out well. 4. Graph database are poor at aggregating data,Don't use it for Business Intelligence. 5. It is difficult to implement versioning/auditing of data in a graph database. while not impossible it is rather awkward though.

Dear Madhusudhan, thank you for your time reviewing GraphDB on Capterra. I was a bit confused whether you are reviewing GraphDB in particular or Graph Databases as a whole. Could you be more specific, and in the context of graphDB, please? Witch version of Graph DB are you using? Kind Regards,

“Amazing i will say. Easy to use and interpret the requirements to real.”

ProsSimplicty i liked unlike SQL Databases where relationship becomes so complex and then you Normalize. Being Simple, we can easily handle objects in very easy way.
ConsThe UI should be better like MS Mangement Studio. Also the server services etc should be part of the software rather starting it manually.

“Review of the free version, its great! Easy and simple to install and use”

OverallEasy setup and install of local graphDB by loading .ttl files. Hdt support would be appreiciated
ProsThe interface is intuitive and it is easy to use tables returned form graph queries to further browse and explore
ConsVisualization of the graph does not work, at least not with the settings I tried (no inference) If graph visualization would be perfect (e.g. see the RDF2Graph) and vizualization could be used to add paterns to the query, I would definetely give GraphDB 5 stars, it would be awesome

“This is an excellent platform to get started in graph databases and knowledge representation.”

OverallI learned a tremendous amount about data structures / formats, and through iterative work, I learned more about how to structure an ontology. (Note: Accounting is not my industry, even though this survey suggests I'm in accounting)
Pros1) The ease of import/export. 2) The visualizations, overall platform direction, and ease of updates. 3) Class hierarchies and visual graph. 4) SPARQL Query & Update (Editor and Results) feature.
Cons1) Tutorials. These could be greatly improved. 2) Import fails are difficult to clear? 3) Interdisciplinary users have difficulty interpreting impact of "repository setup" selections. 4) Broad description specific to each feature / utility and how it can be utilized. For example, this is a Graph Database tool, but can any aspect be specifically used for ontologies. If yes, which one and to what specificity?

“Memory Efficient and easy to understand”

ProsI like its toolkit which provide almost all the feature that you may need while solving any problem. I have used GraphDB for my University assignment , it didn't take much time for me as it is easy to understand and work like plug and play.
ConsI like graphDB and i didn't find disadvantage of using it but of course it take lots of time to download and bit slow (sometime) when i used 4 GB ram with intel i3 processor.

“Great Graph Database Implementation with very good Rest service.”

Pros-The Ease of Use of the Rest service which allows you to import vast data at once. -The speed of the server even in the free edition with the limited number of the concurrent queries.
ConsIf I had to pick something, it would be the heavy workbench that uses too much memory. It is expected in general but still it is annoying to have a non responsive browser after a few hours.

“Very easy to use. Great support.”

OverallEase of use.
ProsVery easy to use when trying to parse through qualitative data for my dissertation. Needed to code data from multiple reflections and interviews.
Conswas very easy to use.. took a little while to get up to speed, but once I did, I found it very intuitive and easy to use.

“I used it for a research project”

OverallEasy set-up, works out of the box.
ProsWorks out of the box, easy configuration. I tried using Jena/Fuseki before, but the configuration is much more laborious and it began unusable after a couple minutes because of memory leaks. No such problem with GraphDB
ConsThe documentation is not always so good for specific problems. For instance, I tried doing requests to my OntoDB server from outside the web interface with secure accounts activated, but I never found how to request tokens from the server.

“Easy to use, reliable performance.”

ProsOntorefine has some very powerfull features for cleaning data, right where you need it. Visual exploration of graphs is really good and compered to other tools on the market, rund smoothly without draing battery,
ConsAutocompletion of sparql queries or some other way of helping developers creating queries. Maybe some template queries for the most basic of queries would be a great help.

“Sharp and quick”

ProsRun smoothly and once you know how to use it you can perform any tasks that involves search in nodes or relations. Good benchmark when executing tasks using Dijkstra's and Prim.
ConsNot for beginners, takes a time to learn how to use the sintax for graph dbs but it is the technology language and not the product.

“Test GraphDB Free with Semantic Mediawiki”

OverallSpeed up performance
ProsI Like this product because is easy to start, it has a REST api and UI simple to use. The fact that the free version is more or less the same in functionality than the commercial version is also appreciable.
Cons In my use case there is not a thing that i don't like, but for further use, I read that transaction is not well implemented, and we hope is possible to configure the url-path of api and gui in a separate way
