Trey leads the Search Technology Development group at CareerBuilder, developing web-scale search & recommendation engine technologies.

I just made it back from the beautiful, sunny city of San Diego where LucidWorks hosted another fantastic Lucene/Solr Revolution conference this week. I was invited back this year to present on “Building a Real-time, Big Data Analytics Platform with Solr.” Thank you to everyone who came and packed out the room, especially those who provided great feedback afterward and asked all of the terrific questions!

Talk Summary: Having “big data” is great, but turning that data into actionable intelligence is where the real value lies. This talk will demonstrate how you can use Solr to build a highly scalable data analytics engine to enable customers to engage in lightning fast, real-time knowledge discovery.

At CareerBuilder, we utilize these techniques to report the supply and demand of the labor force, compensation trends, customer performance metrics, and many live internal platform analytics. You will walk away from this talk with an advanced understanding of faceting, including pivot-faceting, geo/radius faceting, time-series faceting, function faceting, and multi-select faceting. You’ll also get a sneak peak at some new faceting capabilities just wrapping up development including distributed pivot facets and percentile/stats faceting, which will be open-sourced.

The presentation will be a technical tutorial, along with real-world use-cases and data visualizations. After this talk, you’ll never see Solr as just a text search engine again.
