    Hi all. I was in a meeting recently where the chair was extolling the virtues of Graph databases. So much so that he asserted, if they’d been invented, Ralph Kimball would never have become involved with dimensional modelling and would have used graph databases instead. I have been involved with dimensional modelling (and cubes) for many years, but can’t claim to have built a Graph database. However, I understand their strength is in identifying relationships. If you’re working with data that is hierarchical in nature and, the relationships are evident, then Graph is not appropriate. Would be interested in you views. Cheers
