Efficient data access has become a key competitive factor for enterprises. Already enterprises are storing terabytes of data and the volume is growing virtually at exponential rates. Semantic data and text analysis technologies are increasingly gaining acceptance as we are simply incapable of handling the amounts of data we are being exposed to. As the co-presenter Horst Bräuner (CIO for the city of Schwäbisch Hall) will explain, the roll-out and management of such helpful technologies is a strategic challenge for those in charge of archives and enterprise data. The Eclipse project SMILA is aiming to provide just the kind of infrastructure that is needed to solve your short term enterprise search needs and will also provide you with a way to seamlessly upgrade your infrastructure to support the lastest semantic and semantic web technologies.
