SaaS applications have the advantage of remote web deployment that can be instantaneously be used
by potentially any consumer in internet, or of the cost reduction that a Web-based deployment
provides. The speaker explains in this talk the architecture of an innovative SaaS solution built for
Axel Springer media group (Switzerland). This application can extracting remotely the content of
multiple online newspaper articles, analyze them and classify them, determining which articles are
the most similar to a given one, and integrating back into the article to provide the user with a
“related articles” feature. The core components of the analysis process are: language-specific tools
(used to filter the superfluous language terms) and semantic knowledge bases (like Wikipedia, used
to enrich the indexed information with new context specific terms, or to disambiguate the extracted
terms). In a more technical layer, the speaker will explain the criteria to select the emerging
enterprise search framework Apache Solr as platform and how it reduced drastically the
development effort required.
