LucidWorks™ Teams with MapR™ Technologies to Offer Best-in-Class Big Data Analytics Solution

LucidWorks' Leading Enterprise Search Now Available With Hadoop Leader MapR

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Big Data provides a very real opportunity for organizations to drive business decisions by utilizing new information that has yet to be tapped.  However, it is increasingly apparent that organizations are struggling to make effective use of this new multi-structured content for data-driven decision-making. According to a report from the Economist Intelligence Unit, the challenge is not so much the volume, but instead it is the pressing need to analyze and act on Big Data in real-time. 

Existing business intelligence (BI) tools have simply not been designed to provide spontaneous search on multi-structured data in motion. Responding directly to this need, LucidWorks, the company transforming the way people access information, and MapR Technologies, the Hadoop technology leader, today announced the integration between LucidWorks Search™ and MapR.  Available now, the combined solution allows organizations to easily search their MapR Distributed File System (DFS) in a natural way to discover actionable insights from information maintained in Hadoop.

"Organizations that wait to address big data until this evolution is well under way will lose out competitively in their vertical markets, compared to organizations that have aggressively pursued big data flexibility. Aggressive organizations will demonstrate faster, more accurate analysis and decisions relating to their tactical operations and strategic planning."

Integration Solution Highlights

  • Combines the best of Big Data with Search with an integrated and fully distributed solution
  • Supports a pre-defined MapR target data source within LucidWorks Search
  • Enables users to create and configure the MapR data source directly from the LucidWorks Search administration console
  • Leverages enterprise security features offered by both MapR and LucidWorks Search

The Economist Intelligence Unit study found that global companies experienced a 26 percent improvement in performance over the last three years when big data analytics were applied to the decision-making process. And now, those data-savvy executives are forecasting a 41 percent improvement over the next three years. The integration between LucidWorks Search and MapR makes it easier to put Big Data analytics in motion. 

"Our customers find the entire topic of non-traditional search extremely exciting, where the search engine is used to implement and deploy real-time decision and recommendation models. What I find exciting is the way that Solr, in the form of LucidWorks Search, can work seamlessly with the MapR Distribution for Hadoop."

-  Ted Dunning, Chief Application Architect, MapR Technologies

"Never have the benefits of search and machine learning been more important than in building next-generation data-driven applications at scale. The integration of LucidWorks Search with MapR enables organizations to derive immediate and measurable results from data traditionally ignored by legacy systems."

Grant Ingersoll, Chief Scientist and Co-founder, LucidWorks
