Light up features in your analytic application of choice by connecting to your Neo4J graph data with Simba’s Neo4J ODBC and JDBC Drivers with SQL Connector.

Use SQL to access Neo4J data from analytic applications such as Microsoft Excel, Power BI, SAP Cloud for Analytics, QlikView, Tableau and more.

The Simba Neo4j ODBC & JDBC Drivers with SQL Connector provide an interface for executing SQL queries against a Neo4j instance. The ODBC & JDBC drivers expose a virtual relational schema for BI Applications such as Tableau, PowerBI and excel that expect a relational database, and which know how to build & execute SQL queries.

The driver takes a SQL query input from the BI tool and translates it into a Cypher query. The Cypher query is executed against the database via a standard Bolt connection.
