MEDIA ALERT: LucidWorks and MapR to Present Webinar on Unlocking the Secrets of Big Data with Search and Hadoop

SAN MATEO, Calif., Dec 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --



WHAT:

LucidWorks, the trusted name in Search, Discovery and Analytics, will co-present the webinar "Crowd Sourcing Reflected Intelligence Using Search and Big Data" with MapR, a Hadoop technology leader. The webinar will highlight how search users can discover search behavior patterns and leverage them into business value by improving the user experience.

Grant Ingersoll, chief scientist of LucidWorks, and Ted Dunning, chief application architect of MapR, will explain the strengths of combining the easiest, fastest and most dependable distribution for Hadoop with a reliable behavior discovery engine by LucidWorks to provide analytic capabilities along with scalable machine learning algorithms for deeper insight into both content and user behavior.

WHY:

Research firm IDC estimates that the total amount of digital data, or Big Data, will reach 2.7 zettabytes by the end of this year, a 48 percent increase from 2011. Approximately 90 percent of this data will be unstructured. As multi-structured data stores proliferate, organizations must find ways to transform that information into business insights that can create value and provide competitive benefits. Leveraging the combination of MapR with LucidWorks makes Big Data accessible to manage, maintain and search and discover which unlocks the data's mysteries and translates them into knowledge that business leaders can understand and act on.
