Search engines are not just for text anymore. Apache Solr has become a powerful Business Intelligence and Analytics tool, answering a much broader array of questions than was possible in the past. We’ll explore use cases that you may not have realized Solr could address, such as Graph Traversal and Machine Learning through Text Classification. We’ll also discuss the key BI and Analytics differentiator - Faceting, and discuss how that one feature can transform your analytics landscape. Then we’ll look at Solr’s new Parallel SQL interface, which allows you to use Tableau and other traditional BI tools right out of the box to perform analysis tasks that never could have been possible before with a Full Text index. During the talk we demonstrate Facets, plus how you can use the SQL interface to set up a simple alerting engine right within Solr so that you can be productive right away.
