We look forward to seeing you again at another informative program next year!
Just a few years ago, search was an afterthought in many applications. And a costly one at that. Engines capable of indexing mixed content with diverse file formats, multiple foreign languages, and connectors to external sources were difficult to configure, painful to expand, and wickedly expensive. Today, seamless, intuitive search and navigation are essential capabilities of enterprise information systems, and are changing the way we think about all types of applications, from e-mail and e-commerce to social media and business intelligence.
In government, rapidly shifting mission requirements, shrinking budgets, and the leap to cloud computing have all impacted the way we think about building search-based applications. Program managers are expected to start quickly, scale big, operate in real-time, and do it all affordably. And that’s where open source search comes in. The expensive, proprietary engines of yesteryear are being left behind as open source technologies race forward to meet the needs of the next generation of government programs.
Want to learn more? Then join us on October 2nd in Chantilly, Virginia, at the second annual Open Source Search Conference, sponsored by Basis Technology, and focused on applications of Lucene and Solr in government. Catch up on the latest developments, with in-depth presentations on scaling search to the cloud, geospatial search, and Solr 4.0.
On the day before the conference, October 1st, there will be a tutorial offering an introduction to SolrCloud (instructor from LucidWorks). Details are available here.
The conferences are free to all federal, state, and local government employees, but pre-registration by September 20 is recommended. Commercial, academic, and FFRDC participants are also welcome with a paid registration ($195). Spaces are limited, so please submit your registration today.
