Open Source Enterprise Search


  • For a growing range of search applications, open source search platforms such as Solr and Elasticsearch meet customer requirements in full, from a technical perspective.
  • The missing ingredients are implementation expertise, and customer-specific items such as data connectors and content processing systems (to clean, normalize and enrich content prior to indexing).
  • We also work with a range of other open source technologies, including Hadoop, Mahout, Nutch, Heritrix, and others.
  • A wide range of applications can benefit from the cost savings and flexibility provided by open source solutions. Some of those applications include intranet search, e-commerce site search, recruiting search and match, log analytics, fraud detection, public-facing website search, and government information portals.
