Search is Not Enough: Using Solr for Analytics
The Web Dev Zone is brought to you in partnership with Mendix. Discover how IT departments looking for ways to keep up with demand for business apps has caused a new breed of developers to surface - the Rapid Application Developer.
We've got our first video recording out of Lucene Revolution 2012. This year was even bigger than the previous two, with even more focus on massive data handling (aka big data).
Steve Kearns, Basis Technology
Search is everywhere, and it is a crucially important capability in any enterprise, application, or website. However, an increasingly sophisticated user base expects their search engine to bring them more than just document hits - they want the facts, answers, and context that connect the results with their workflow. In this talk, Steve Kearns will discuss and demonstrate how the combination of structured data, text analytics on unstructured data, and Solr can be used to power advanced analytics applications at scale. This includes integrating text analytics components into Solr, adjustments to the Solr Schema, as well as UI-level changes that support the integration of structured and unstructured data from several sources.
