DB2SNA: An All-in-One Tool for Extraction and Aggregation of Underlying Social Networks From Relational Databases
In the enterprise context, people need to visualize different types of interactions between heterogeneous objects (e.g. product and site, customers and product, people interaction (social network)...). The existing approaches focus on social networks extraction using web document. However a considerable amount of information is stored in relational databases. Therefore, relational databases can be seen as rich sources for extracting a social network. The extracted network has in general a huge size which makes it difficult to analyze and visualize. An aggregation step is needed in order to have more understandable graphs.
