New Fusion Extension Enables Intelligent App Development in Minutes

SAN FRANCISCO, CA–(Marketwired – Apr 12, 2016) – Leading search and analytics software company Lucidworks today released Lucidworks View, which allows companies to quickly and easily create custom search-driven applications leveraging Apache Solr and Apache Spark. The new extension to Lucidworks’ flagship product Fusion, Lucidworks View simplifies Big Data’s most significant challenge — connecting to and creating value from a variety of data sources — empowering companies to quickly build meaningful data-driven experiences, regardless of technical expertise.

“Data lives everywhere, across a growing set of formats and locations. Even the most mature companies struggle to not only wrangle it in high volumes but expose it in a meaningful way,” said Will Hayes, CEO, Lucidworks. “We built Lucidworks View to give our users the ability to rapidly create sophisticated applications for customers and, for the first time, truly plug and play with Big Data. Our aim is to eliminate the costly, time consuming complexities usually associated with the front- and back-end development of intelligent apps, moving companies quickly from the question, ‘What do I do with my data?’ to the statement, ‘Data drives every part of the business.'”
