    Are your search results cutting it? The daunting diversity and rapid growth in information that search applications must slice through puts constant pressure on the quality of search results. There are many individual approaches that help ensure users can find actionable information quickly - and it's best to attack the problem from more than one direction.

    Now, Smartlogic, makers of Semaphore, have partnered with Lucid Imagination, the commercial company for Apache Lucene/Solr, to cut through chaos for better findability. Lucid Imagination helps you harness the power of Lucene/Solr search and the compelling economics of open source.

    Smartlogic Semaphore adds a layer of findability on top of native Lucene/Solr's search, along with a rich set of APIs, enhancing content metadata using automated classification for dramatically better search results and improved navigation. Together, they deliver a semantic search experience that provides a flexible, scalable alternative for enterprise search.

    In this free webinar, the presenters will discuss:
    Lucene/Solr search foundations and semantic extension for ontology and classification
    Understanding the Semaphore/Solr integration
    Using metadata to drive faceted search and intuitive, dynamic content navigation
    Using topic pages to drive more traffic to your site and to keep people for longer
