According to research firm IDC (News - Alert), the total amount of digital data, or big data, will reach 2.7 zettabytes by the end of this year. Approximately 90 percent of this data will be unstructured. By transforming this unstructured data into business insights, the businesses can gain important competitive advantages. LucidWorks, a developer of search, discovery and analytics software based on Apache Lucene and Apache Solr technology, and MapR Technologies, a developer of Apache Hadoop-derived software, have teamed up to jointly host a webinar that will highlight the ways big data can be tapped and leveraged for creating business value.
Based on the analysis of search patterns, businesses can derive an idea about what the customers and prospects are looking for and accordingly make improvements on their services. Entitled, “Crowd Sourcing Reflected Intelligence Using Search and Big Data,” the webinar is being held on Thursday, Dec. 13, 2012 and will highlight how behavior patterns can be studied and leveraged to improve the user experience. The webinar will discuss how the combination of MapR and LucidWorks can help achieve analytical capabilities to make big data accessible, and how to manage, maintain, search, discover and translate it into knowledge that business leaders can understand and act on.
Grant Ingersoll, chief scientist of LucidWorks, and Ted Dunning, chief application architect of MapR, will explain how the combines technology can be used to achieve analytic capabilities along with scalable machine learning algorithms for deeper insight into both content and user behavior.
MapR Technologies is the open, enterprise grade distribution for Hadoop that allows enterprises to harness big data in an easy, dependable and fast manner. LucidWorks offers enterprise-grade embedded search solutions for search, discovery and analytics. Since its inception, the company has grown to offer its own products, LucidWorks Search in 2011 and LucidWorks Big Data in 2012.
Attendees will learn about the strengths of combining the easiest, fastest and most dependable distribution for Hadoop with a reliable behavior discovery engine by LucidWorks to provide analytic capabilities along with scalable machine learning algorithms for deeper insight into both content and user behavior.
Recently, LucidWorks introduced SearchHub.org, a new online resource committed to the development, education and enhancement of the Apache Lucene/Solr community. Before this release, Apache Lucene/Solr developers had to post questions and look for answers on various websites to get comprehensive material on a particular topic. SearchHub.org will allow developers to simply connect, combine and produce the next generation of applications.
