The hype (and self-hype) of Social Media has gone from buzz to roar. Companies of all sizes across sectors are discovering that social technology innovations can provide competitive advantage, from engaging customers in support forums to unlocking employee productivity with advances in collaboration.
As fast as companies, communities and consumers are producing data about each other and everything else, they need faster, more versatile search capabilities to find the information they want. They want search technology that can match pace with the transparency, flexibility, speed and scale of social media and the data that drives it.
Join Lucid Imagination Chief Architect Brian Pinkerton, to examine how Lucene/Solr Open Source Search Technology is unlocking the value inside the torrents of data produced by social technology. We’ll explore search strategies with thought leaders Dave Hendi, Director of Engineering for Search at MySpace.com, and Ty Ahmad-Taylor, CEO of Fanfeedr.com, and discuss Digg.com, LinkedIn, and other cutting-edge Lucene/Solr use cases, to help you discover the search innovations that can put your social media data to work.
