Neo Technology announced that more than 19,000 professionals have listed Neo4j as a skill on LinkedIn, and more than 500 have taken extra steps and become “Neo4j Certified Professionals.” It's apparent that IT professionals are responding to the increased demand for more data professionals in light of the data deluge that is taking place with the adoption of IoT and big data initiatives.

Neo4j launched the Neo4j Certification Exam last year, and since then data scientists, software engineers, technical architects and hundreds of other technology professionals have become Neo4j Certified. This shows that harnessing connections in data with Neo4j has become a priority for organizations across a number of industries and a foundational skill for a variety of technology professionals.

In December 2016, 451 Group released its most recent NoSQL LinkedIn Skills Index, which tracks and ranks the number of mentions of different NoSQL databases in LinkedIn member profiles. 

The Neo4j Certification Exam is part of the Neo4j GraphAcademy, designed to bolster the community through education and training resources. The certification program was launched so customers could work with proven experts and derive more value from their deployments, and so experts themselves could showcase their mastery on professional networks, like LinkedIn and GitHub. 

“The success of Neo4j and our customers is directly tied to the excitable, brilliant and tireless users that make up its community,” said Emil Eifrem, CEO and co-founder of Neo Technology. “Neo4j has become the defacto standard for unlocking connections in data, evidenced by the variety and sheer number of customers leveraging our technology. The traction of our certification program has been outstanding, and we have more instructional content, training classes and events planned so our community can thrive and our customers will succeed.”

Neo4j Certified Professionals have proven they are experts in the following categories:

  • The property graph model

  • Cypher syntax, including creation and querying of data

  • Data modeling

  • Developing with Neo4j

  • Neo4j in production and High Availability (HA)

Neo Technology is planning a new certification specific to Neo4j 3.1, which includes Cypher updates, causal clustering, and security and operations. To take the current exam, please follow this link: https://neo4j.com/graphacademy/neo4j-certification/.
