VentureBeat: What are graph database query languages?. “Classic relational databases can store graphs, and before graph databases it was common for developers to use them because they were the only option. SQL can answer basic questions, but traditional query languages generally can’t answer the most useful and tantalizing questions. Ironically, perhaps, relational databases are not nearly as good at representing very complex relations as graph databases are. Often, the only solution for a relational database query is to return large blocks of data so the client software can run the analysis.”
