Solr has been widely adopted in the Enterprise because it offers powerful full-text search, hit highlighting, faceted search, dynamic clustering, fuzzy search, stemming, ranking, database integration, and rich document (e.g., Word, PDF) handling and much more.
Despite Solr's many capabilities the product does not include the ability to perform semantic search in your files. For example, it does not let you perform queries or reasoning over the objects that are discovered in a document via Entity Extraction. For that you need to marry Solr with an RDF Database to create intelligent text documents. Several of our SemTech customer projects have found this augmentation of Solr with RDF to be a key feature for creating unique capabilities within their product offering.
In our webcast we'll show you some demos of applications that use Solr and an RDF Database to reason over text objects. We'll also provide a short tutorial on how to keep Solr in sync with the RDF Database.
Watch this recorded webcast here.
AllegroGraph now contains an interface to the Solr search engine for use when creating free text indexes (but users must get and install Solr). See Solr Text Indices for the details. AllegroGraph native free-text indexing is described in Free-text Indices.

Semantic Case Study: EPIM ReportingHub
The E&P Information Management Association (EPIM) launched EPIM ReportingHub (ERH), an interesting semantic technology project in the field of oil and gas. According to the project website, ERH is a very flexible knowledgebase for receiving, validating (using NPD's Fact Pages and PCA RDL), storing, analysing, and transmitting reports. The operators shall send XML schemas for DDR, DPR and MPR to ERH and ERH sends DDR and MPR as XML schemas to the NPD/PSA and all three reports as PDF to EPIM's License2Share (L2S). The partners may download all three reports and/or any data from one or more reports through flexible queries. Some parts of ERH will be in operation already in November 2011 and the rest as soon as the authorities and the industry are ready for it. ERH is owned and operated by EPIM.

Intel - Big Memory, Big Data, and the Semantic Web. "Techniques like MapReduce and NoSQL products based on them are fine for some problems," said Mitch Shults, Mission-Critical Segment Strategist, Intel Data Center Group. "To achieve high performance against meaningful amounts of triplestore data, however, you just can't afford to be traipsing all over the network to pull things together. This result demonstrates the incredible value that affordable large-scale, big-memory server platforms built around the Intel Xeon E7 server platform can deliver for next-generation workloads like triple stores."

Semanticweb.com: What One Trillion Means for the Semantic Web. Mitchell Shults commented on the significance of Franz's recent success loading one trillion triplestores. Shults writes, Triplestores are perfect for making sense out of extremely complex data. However, a triplestore is only useful if massive quantities of information can be loaded, updated and effectively queried in a reasonable amount of time. That is why Franz's Technology announcement is so interesting. Read the rest of the article here.
Amdocs - "Semantics - the B2C Game Changer" (Video): Bill Guinn, CTO Product Enablers, Amdocs Product Business Unit, delivered a keynote at the 2011 Semantic Technology Conference in San Francisco. His talk was one of the highlights for anyone interested in how Semantic Technology can be used in enterprise systems. Watch the video here.
