Neo4j appoints Perum Peruri as distributor for graph data
Wed, 26th Jul 2023

Neo4j has appointed Perum Peruri, the Republic of Indonesia's Bank Notes and Certificate Printing Public Company, to deliver Neo4j's graph technology solutions. 

Neo4j says the delivery of its solutions is pivotal for organisations to gain valuable insights, manage complex and rapidly-changing demands and power mission-critical applications. 

Under the agreement, the state-owned security-printing company will work closely with Neo4j on a combined go-to-market strategy to increase Neo4j's footprint in Indonesia. 

Perum Peruri believes many Indonesian firms use graph data technology to find hidden relationships and patterns across billions of data connections.

Farah F Rahmayanti, Head of Strategic Business Unit (SBU) Digital, Perum Peruri, says: "As a state-owned company that provides secure digital technology solutions, we serve a multitude of customers, especially government departments. 

"This includes the Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Communication and Information Technology, the Ministry of State Apparatus Utilization and Bureaucratic Reform and many others, all of whom have critical demands."

"We decided to partner with Neo4j as we see a strong potential to expand our reach to target new customers and work closely with other state-owned enterprises and agencies by offering the best graph data and analytics solution in the market,' says Rahmayanti.

Graph technology adoption continues accelerating in Indonesia as organisations seek better ways to track and visualise data lineages and quickly identify and solve challenges of any size and scale. 

According to Gartner, graph technologies will be used in 80% of data and analytics innovations by 2025, up from 10% in 2021, to facilitate rapid organisational decision-making.

As Indonesia pursues its goal to bring ASEAN closer to a single regional digital community, graph technology will be a powerful tool in breaking down barriers and unlocking new capabilities and opportunities to boost the nation's competitiveness.

Additionally, it can help achieve long-term economic goals as outlined in the Digital Indonesia Road Map by the Ministry of Communication and Informatics.  

Reza Pahlevi, Managing Director, Neo4j Indonesia, says: "Neo4j continues to push the limits of graph technology to enable more industries to solve modern data problems." 

"Our partnership will empower Perum Peruri and its network to unlock richer insights and make more accurate analysis and predictions with their existing data." 

"With Neo4j's scalability, Indonesian organisations can easily accommodate application changes without disrupting existing functionality, allowing them to continuously upgrade their services and stay ahead of the competition," says Pahlevi. 

The latest partnership signifies Neo4j's growing commitment to Indonesia. In 2022, Neo4j partnered with IYKRA, Indonesia's artificial intelligence (AI) and data knowledge provider, to deliver free AI training to support Indonesia's Emas 2045 vision to become a developed nation. 

Participants receive Neo4j AuraDB Free training to become a certified graph database engineer, mentoring from IYKRA data experts, and working on real-life projects.

Neo4j also launched the Graphs4ID initiative, in collaboration with KORIKA, Indonesia's Artificial Intelligence Industry Research and Innovation Collaboration, to foster tech talent and leverage Neo4j's graph data platform as the foundation for the National AI Blueprint towards the government's 2045 vision.

75% of the Fortune 100 and over 250,000 data developers, data scientists, and architects across hundreds of Fortune 500 companies, NGOs, and more use the company's offerings.
