Timely access to actionable information has long been in the crosshairs of two technology environments: Business Intelligence (BI) and Search. But with the growing scope and volume of unstructured data emerging as a key factor in the landscape, these two classically distinct approaches are converging on a common target. And open source is accelerating this trend in both technology domains, by providing greater flexibility, transparency, and economic leverage in transforming the full span of data into competitive advantage. For IT managers, application developers, and forward-thinking business technologists, the forthcoming convergence of BI and search raises compelling questions:

  • What disciplines need to inform design and deployment across these domains?
  • How should those experienced in BI think about new opportunities using Search, and vice-versa?
  • Where do their use cases converge, and where do they diverge?
  • How can the unique advantages of open source Lucene/Solr complement both proprietary commercial BI solutions as well as the compelling Open Source BI alternatives?

Join internationally recognized BI technology and strategy expert Claudia Imhoff, PhD, President and Founder of Intelligent Solutions Inc., for an enlightening webcast on how new frontiers opened by Lucene Solr Open Source add leverage and breadth to business intelligence.
