Scalable graph systems have been around for many years and have never taken off.

Most businesses doing big data (like ours) often have multiple disparate data sources that at the start of the pipelines are ETLing into some EDW. Trying to consolidate them into a single integrated view is very difficult and time/resource intensive. Having billions of disconnected nodes in the graph would be very hard to reason with.
