Build better search applications faster
Solr/Lucene open source technology is unmatched in its ability to deliver the full range of cutting-edge search and discovery techniques -- faceting, distributed processing, indexing billions of documents with subsecond query response time. Now, LucidWorks Enterprise lets you harness that power to build better search applications faster, without having to give up any of the powerful innovations that made Solr/Lucene the leading search technology used by thousands of organizations, large and small. LucidWorks Enterprise slashes the amount of time and effort it takes to build Solr-based search applications, delivering new, cutting edge search features that translate into better search experience for your end users.
Admin and Config UI: Ensures that new data can be added and search features can be tuned more easily and quickly, keeping data and search results current with user needs
Query Parser: Handles a broader range of user inputs, helping ensure that user queries retrieve better, more complete results more quickly and reduces the likelihood that users will see an error message
Click Scoring: Leverages ongoing user interaction with the search system automatically, prioritizing results that users have already selected for subsequent queries of the same search term
Alerts: When new results are available, helps automatically notify users of the availability of the information without having to return and search again and again.
Lowering the cost of growth
The one thing that's certain about the content and data in your search application is that it will grow and change. As you add new data and data sources, adapt user roles, and extend your application across platforms, LucidWorks Enterprise provides the features you need to deploy your application successfully at a price that is five to ten times lower than the commercial alternatives. And the lower the cost of growing your application, the faster you can grow the business the application was written to support.
Security: Integrates with your existing security infrastructure so that you can apply your policies to the search infrastructure of documents
Cross-Platform: Avoid lock-in to a particular platform, so you can adapt as your business changes, and draw upon a broader range of developer skillsets
License Model And Packaging: Reduced risk through an integrated solution platform, with available subscriptions providing time-critical enterprise-grade support and consulting from the worlds leading experts in Lucene/Solr open source search
