Neo4j appoints Perum Peruri as its distributor for its groundbreaking graph data technology in Indonesia

Neo4j®, the graph database and analytics firm, has appointed Perum Peruri, the Republic of Indonesia’s Bank Notes and Certificate Printing Public Company, as a distributor to deliver Neo4j’s unique graph technology solutions pivotal for organisations to gain valuable insights, manage complex and rapidly-changing demands and power mission-critical applications. 

Why did Neo4j pick Perum Peruri to deliver its solutions?

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 has expanded its reach over the years to become a trusted ICT partner, sealing key wins with government entities and securing a variety of external partnerships with market-leading industry players, from technology and finance to manufacturing. The organisation believes that an increasing number of Indonesian firms are turning to graph data technology to find hidden relationships and patterns across billions of data connections.

Graph technology adoption continues to accelerate 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 decision-making in companies.

As Indonesia pursues its goal to bring ASEAN closer to a single regional digital community, graph tech will be a powerful tool in breaking down barriers and unlocking new capabilities and opportunities to boost Indonesia’s competitiveness and achieve its economic goals outlined in the Digital Indonesia Road Map by the Ministry of Communication and Informatics.

Commenting on the partnership, Reza Pahlevi, Managing Director, Neo4j Indonesia, said, “Neo4j continues to push the limits of graph technology to enable more industries to solve modern data problems.
