Neo4j has announced a service delivery alliance with Deloitte Consulting Southeast Asia for a range of services to customers within the region.

The agreement will see Neo4j provide product and technical support to Deloitte and eventually to end-customers.

Deloitte will, in turn, offer advisory and implementation services to build graph-powered offerings to fit end-user needs.

This partnership is the first of its kind for a graph technology vendor in Asia and will focus on multiple areas such as logistics and transportation, telecommunications, financial services, and government and public services.

Neo4j is a recognised leader in graph technology and says its database is the ideal platform for building enterprise knowledge graphs, as it allows data scientists to use advanced analytics techniques on that data using its Graph Data Science, enabling use cases from fraud and detecting anomalies to optimising the supply chain.

In addition, Neo4j notes that graphs are useful for managing vast and complex amounts of data and storing information as connected nodes and relationships.

They also perform well in connecting and managing large quantities of data to answer complex queries.

Neo4j's Graph Data Science offering provides data scientists with a way to achieve greater predictive accuracy with comprehensive graph analysis techniques that perform at scale, efficiently handling hundreds of billions of nodes and relationships.

Further, users can improve models through a library of graph algorithms, machine learning pipelines, and data science methods.

Deloitte Consulting Southeast Asia AI and data practice leader Chris Lewin says the partnership will focus on three key pillars: knowledge graphs, networks, and customer 360.

"With the rise of graph data platforms in the region, Neo4j is the ideal partner for Deloitte to enhance our value proposition for customers by advising and implementing high impact - insights driven solutions such as knowledge graphs," Lewin says.

"Deloitte has developed knowledge graph accelerators to enable organisations to quickly adopt and leverage the power of knowledge graphs.

"Neo4j's world-leading platform combines user-friendly tools with a powerful library of production-ready graph algorithms that can help our customers generate insights to drive growth and give their businesses a competitive edge."

According to Neo4j Asia Pacific vice president Nik Vora, the partnership with Deloitte means customers can combat the challenges of dealing with dynamic, complex relationships between data to achieve strategic business goals.

"We're excited to collaborate with Deloitte, which has a trusted reputation across the Southeast Asian region and around the world," Vora says.

"Deloitte has proven solution delivery capability, and together, we have a shared vision of helping customers derive deep insights from ever-growing, highly interconnected datasets.

"The demand for graph data platforms continues to grow. At Neo4j alone we experienced 100 percent growth in Asia Pacific in 2021, with accelerated demand coming from a wide range of industries, including financial services, travel, retail, public sector, and healthcare organisations wanting to solve complex business problems with Neo4j."
