The power of a NoSQL database is in its ability to handle all kinds of information, in any format, from any source, and make that combined information space
available to users to discover, understand, and make decisions.
In this talk we'll describe real-world case studies where users leverage structured data, documents (XML), and triples (RDF) in combination. We'll start with the BBC, who power their record-breaking BBC Sports web site using data + documents + facts/relationships, then describe groundbreaking work in Healthcare, Media, Financial Services, and Intelligence.
To wrap up, we'll look into the future of Semantic Search Applications, and see how close we are to the world of "Minority Report", where all information is available in context to explore, navigate, and customize.
- Learn how 3 different data paradigms - structured data, documents, RDF triples - can work in combination
- See real-world examples of the power of Semantic Search in context
- Seek into the future of Semantic Search Applications
