Grant Ingersoll, who is a major leader in the Apache Lucene, Mahout, and Solr communities and a friend of DZone (see our most recent interview), was bestowed with the title of 'Chief Scientist' at Lucid Imagination—a commercial Solr solutions provider that Ingersoll co-founded in 2007.

Here was a quote given by Ingersoll for the press release:

"Companies are drowning in massive amounts of information, seeking solutions that can make that data work for them," said Mr. Ingersoll. "I believe the innovation of Lucene/Solr open source and other Apache Software Foundation technologies like Hadoop and Mahout provide the most compelling answer to challenges of delivering results from big data. Through the commercial platform of LucidWorks Enterprise, open source search application development lowers the cost of growth, with the scalability to address ever-increasing volume and the flexibility to tackle continuous change and diversity of content. I look forward to helping Lucid Imagination set the agenda for adoption of scalable open source enterprise search and accelerate innovation."

Grant has also had some of his content posted on DZone's Solr-Lucene Zone.  Congratulations to Grant and good luck in your new position at Lucid Imagination!
