Apache TinkerPop serves as an Apache governed, vendor-agnostic, open source initiative providing a standard interface and query language for both OLTP- and OLAP-based graph systems. This presentation will outline the means by which vendors implement TinkerPop and then, in turn, how the Gremlin graph traversal language is able to process the vendor's underlying graph structure. The material will be presented from the perspective of the DSEGraph team's use of Apache TinkerPop in enabling graph computing features for DataStax Enterprise customers.
