Does anyone have examples of using graph theory/network science in the field of Business Intelligence?


A lot of examples for the use of graph theory revolve around either social networks (which I understand are useful for business intelligence) or scientific/biological application.

I am exploring the application of graph theory on business data. The current applications that I have identified are:

  • Airport connections
  • Delivery logistics - like the one eBay implemented
  • Co-purchasing networks
  • Website navigation
  • Bank transfers

Can anyone provide links to studies or companies already using graph theory in this field?

Do you need explanations (e.g. about use-cases you mentioned) or just use-cases? Is it a "How" question or a "what" question? – Kasra Manshaei – 2018-11-12T11:48:55.500

Sorry for not being clearer :) This is a "what" question. What applications does graph theory have on business data? – ToriTompkins – 2018-11-12T13:59:52.083

Look at container shipping and port operations. – davmor – 2018-11-13T05:16:52.577
