Jen Stirrup's Business Intelligence Blog Javier Guillén | Pervasive Business Intelligence untitled In this post, I will go into why there is a “big graph anti-pattern”, the fundamentally different kinds of graph processing, how to match the technology to the problem, and what are some successful patterns for scalable graph processing. The big graph anti-pattern is “Throw everything into a big graph and then using the same tools that gave us horizontal scaling for other problems: map/reduce and key-value stores.” There are several fallacies here. First, there are many types of graph processing and you can not use the same architecture to scale all of them. This is the main focus of this posting and I will go into detail on why this does not work below. Second, the advantage of throwing the data together is that you can move onto finding information immediately. There are some fundamental architectural differences in systems for high performance graph traversal and graph analytics, systems for high performance graph pattern matching, map/reduce platforms and key-value stores.

However, they are usually a grey box for developers and hence, not been used to their full potential in most of the organizations. Basic Concepts 1) Geometry and Geography: These are the two spatial data types that are available in SQL Server 2008 and above. 2) Source for Map Reports: SSRS 2008 R2 and above allows two main map sources – ESRI Shapefiles and SQL spatial. 3) Layer Types in Map Reports: There can be 4 types of layers in SSRS Map reports namely Polygon, Line, Point and Bing Map. Prerequisites To recreate the scenarios explained in this chapter, you would require the following:- 1. 2. 3. 4. Initial Setup 1. 2. 3. 1. 2.
