Mark M.

Nearly instantaneous, rich-featured semantic repository

2019-10-29

There are other triple stores with different feature sets, but it don't think there's any triplestore that is better than GraphDB.

Pros

A semantic similarity search tool is provided.

Cons

There are nice free text indexing & search tools, but no natural language parser for discovering entities and relationships.

Triple store database for my semantic web and linked data applications.

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

2018-03-06

I learned a tremendous amount about data structures / formats, and through iterative work, I learned more about how to structure an ontology.

Pros

1) 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.

Cons

These could be greatly improved. 2) Import fails are difficult to clear?

review of graphdb in the production planning

2019-11-05

We are currently using graphdb in a PoC as semantic web stack compliant database for data integration in a laboratory environment.

Pros

- ease of use (compared to other semantic web stack solutions) - degree of inferencing implementation - solution for transforming relational data into RDF with OpenRefine integration - query performance (for SELECT, a evaluation for INSERT queries could not be given due to use of free version) - good support even at free version

Cons

- versioning of data (see changes over time) - better controllability of role and rights (give rights for specific graphs in repository) - no IdP based authentiaction like OpenID Connect (or something based on oAuth2 or at least SAML) - easy to use integration for object storage (like AWS S3) - documentation could be more detailed in some places

The best Ontological Database Engine

2019-10-29

We've had a really good time working with it.

Pros

And its compliance with several standards for the interchange formats makes the way pretty straight forward no matter what tool was used to generate an interchange file.

Cons

Also it would be desirable if we had access to connectors for different platforms.

Dear Adonay, thank you for your great feedback! It is always great to see some extended prons and cons of the product you create! Regarding the cons: If you are part of the GraphDB Update announcements list you should receive a note about every update of GraphDB, so you won't be missing anything new. About the connectors: Latest releases of GraphDB support connectors and plugins to MongoDB Lucene, SOLR, Elasticsearch. If you need connectors to other popular services, you should make a request to the GraphDB Production team. Best Regards

Great Graph Database Implementation with very good Rest service.

2018-03-06

Pros

-The Ease of Use of the Rest service which allows you to import vast data at once.

Cons

If 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.

GraphDB

2019-11-05

We use GraphDB together with PoolParty as part of the Semantic Integrator solution.

Pros

I can be very short about my (our) experiences so far with GraphDB. GraphDB is a clear winner for our usecases now. The learning curve is not steep, almost self-explanatory. It’s fast and it fits our needs; for now. We loved the graphics of GraphDB.

Cons

OntoRefine. It looks fine but we missed some modeling features. We switched back to OpenRefine.

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

2018-03-13

Easy setup and install of local graphDB by loading .ttl files.

Pros

The interface is intuitive and it is easy to use tables returned form graph queries to further browse and explore

Cons

Visualization 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

Madhusudhan R.

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

2018-03-09

NA

Pros

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.

Cons

Graph database are poor at aggregating data,Don't use it for Business Intelligence. 5.

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,

Easy to use, reliable performance.

2018-03-09

Pros

Ontorefine has some very powerfull features for cleaning data, right where you need it.

Cons

Autocompletion 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.

Speed up performance

Pros

I Like this product because is easy to start, it has a REST api and UI simple to use.

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

Sharp and quick

2017-06-01

Pros

Run smoothly and once you know how to use it you can perform any tasks that involves search in nodes or relations.

Cons

Not 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.

Perhaps the best choice for mid-size company

2019-10-29

Well, GraphDB is definitely one of the "triplestores of choice". It's suitable both for experiments and for production.

Pros

Good performance, a lot of features, great UI and documentation, ease of administration and use.

Cons

OWL 2 DL reasoning is not supported. The LPG model (i.e. RDF*/SPARQL* or Gremlin) is not supported.

GraphDB review?

2019-10-31

Overall it is a very experience and since I have started using GraphDB, I have not switched to any other semantic platform.

Pros

The software is easy to use. The User interface is quite nice, and appealing.

Cons

Get some more documentation on the use of Sparql for example - how to formulate complex joins.

Pros

Works out of the box, easy configuration.

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.
