9781608455072: Search-Based Applications: At the Confluence of Search and Database Technologies (Synthesis Lectures on Information Concepts, Retrieval, and Services)

What will data management technologies look like in ten years? While the future's difficult to predict, this book provides students, researchers and professionals alike with a brief and engaging look at one prescient trend: the convergence of search and database technologies. This convergence has given rise to a new breed of non-relational ('NoSQL') databases and data stores, and to a new generation of search engines that share characteristics with both non-relational and relational databases. It is this new type of engine that supports Search Based Applications (SBAs), which are software applications built on a search rather than
database backbone. SBAs offer a pragmatic way to solve both well-known and emerging information management challenges as of now, while shedding light on what tomorrow's information systems might look like.

Table of Contents: Search Based Applications / Evolving Business Information Access Needs / Origins and Histories / Data Models and Storage / Data Collection/Population / Data Processing / Data Retrieval / Data Security, Usability, Performance, Cost / Summary Evolutions and Convergences / SBA Platforms / SBA Uses and Preconditions / Anatomy of a Search Based Application / Case Study: GEFCO / Case Study: Urbanizer / Case Study: National Postal Agency / Future Directions

From the Back Cover:

We are poised at a major turning point in the history of information management via computers. Recent evolutions in computing, communications, and commerce are fundamentally reshaping the ways in which we humans interact with information, and generating enormous volumes of electronic data along the way. As a result of these forces, what will data management technologies, and their supporting software and system architectures, look like in ten years? It is difficult to say, but we can see the future taking shape now in a new generation of information access platforms that combine strategies and structures of two familiar - and previously quite distinct - technologies, search engines and databases, and in a new model for software applications, the Search-Based Application (SBA), which offers a pragmatic way to solve both well-known and emerging information management challenges as of now. Search engines are the world's most familiar and widely deployed information access tool, used by hundreds of millions of people every day to locate information on the Web, but few are aware they can now also be used to provide precise, multidimensional information access and analysis that is hard to distinguish from current database applications, yet endowed with the usability and massive scalability of Web search. In this book, we hope to introduce Search Based Applications to a wider audience, using real case studies to show how this flexible technology can be used to intelligently aggregate large volumes of unstructured data (like Web pages) and structured data (like database content), and to make that data available in a highly contextual, quasi real-time manner to a wide base of users for a varied range of purposes. We also hope to shed light on the general convergences underway in search and database disciplines, convergences that make SBAs possible, and which serve as harbingers of information management paradigms and technologies to come.

Review:

"Overall this is an inexpensive but very valuable resource on a technology that is already available and has the potential to have a substantial impact on the organisational management of information."  --Martin White, Intranet Focus
