Building CluedIn with Tim Ward
How do you build a tool that bridges data silos? Carl and Richard talk to Tim Ward about his work on CluedIn, a tool for connecting documents, email and other business resources together so that employees can see what everyone is working on with a minimum of fuss. Tim talks about using different data stores within CluedIn to leverage their strengths - the graph storage of neo4J maintains relationships between documents where ElasticSearch actually finds things. The art of tagging and cataloging is key, so fighting the tools isn't the best plan. Give a try!
Tim Ward is an engineer at CluedIn, a company out of Denmark. He has spent 10 years as a software engineer focussing on search and graph technologies. He spends his time these days buried in Visual Studio writing software the way software should be written. Originally from Australia he now lives in Denmark with his wife and dog that looks like Chewbacca from Star Wars. The dog that is. Spends his time coding, playing his ridiculously expensive guitar and annoying his neighbours in the process.
