Fusion 2.0 provides an organization with access to a streamlined, consumer-like search experience with enterprise-grade speed and scalability. The new release integrates Lucidworks' Fusion with Apache Spark to enable real-time data analytics. Fusion 2.0 also features a new version of the company's SiLK user interface (UI) that simplifies dashboard visualizations and enhances the user experience. The SiLK UI runs on top of Fusion and the Apache Solr search platform, upon which Fusion is based. SiLK gives users the power to perform ad-hoc search and analysis of massive amounts of multi-structured and time series data. Users can swiftly transform their findings into visualizations and dashboards. Will Hayes, CEO of Lucidworks, said the integration of Apache Spark extends search-based analytics capabilities and brings the power of real time streaming to Fusion. It also gives Fusion users access to Spark's store of machine learning libraries that improve the relevancy of data-driven analytics. In addition, a new SiLK-powered user interface, the Fusion Dashboard, extends Fusion's accessibility.
"We built Fusion to give our users the ability to create unlimited experiences around their data, regardless of their role within an organization," Hayes said in a statement. "With our new interface, users are better equipped to utilize Fusion so they can create the applications they want for customers while expanding their understanding of their own data. We want to offer the best product to our users, and by integrating with Apache Spark we enable real-time analytics that complement our powerful search capabilities."
