Lucene : More than meets the eye

The technology that powers Apple, Disney, Goldman Sachs, Netflix, AOL, eHarmony, Zappos, SourceForge, JSTOR, Sears, and many more is free. Rahul will review a few use cases for "information retrieval" that can transform how organizations work together to gather , analyze, and access information. Information retrieval technologies can make relevant knowledge and information accessible to those in the front lines of an enterprise. It has the potential to transform organizations from being statically and bureaucratically managed to acting more agile and nimble through knowledge distribution. Lucene can be used as a force multiplier for knowledge warehousing, analysis, and access. He'll close with the major differences between Lucene and Lucene powered software such as Solr, Elastisearch, TITAN, and RavenDB

Over the last few years, Rahul has been working on a book : "The Modern Enterprise : Business of Business Today" where he's interviewed 15 firms that primarily operate their organizations using a concert of online software and cloud infrastructures.
