The world is awash in raw data like never before. Important information is buried inside of untold petabytes of structured (databases, automate sensor feeds, XML documents, etc.) and unstructured (emails, web pages, tweets, PDFs, PowerPoint presentations, etc.) data sources. Organizations have had limited tools with which to extract value from these potential treasure troves, up until recently. Within the past few years the open source community has developed a set of tools that, when combined, can help organizations fuse massive volumes of structured and unstructured data together into actionable knowledge. In this presentation learn how IKANOW built their open source document discovery and analysis platform Infinit.e using the best open source tools available and why MongoDB is at the heart of that platform.
