Search as a platform
Why search as a platform?
In many years Alpha Solutions has worked with search based applications. Internet applications as well as process support tools.
This has earned us a great deal of experience in evaluating wheter a search based platform is the right solution in a given business case.
We believe that search based applications is the next big initiative. The last couple of years the companies has been making their content available to the user on the internet / intranet. But the large amounts of information has made it hard for the users to find what they are looking for.
Google has had a great success in becomming THE information finder on the internet. This has made a lot of users world wide familiar with search.
Alpha Solutions and Search
Alpha Solutions have implemented a lot of large applications to solve the challenges mentioned above. Mostly we use search platforms to found the base of these solutions - why build if you can buy.
We see these platforms as being as technological building blocks like CMS systems, relational databases or application servers. The search server is an infrastructural component in all major solutions.
Over the years Alpha Solutions has helped a large number of companies choosing and implementing search platforms. Some of the platforms chosen are: Apache SOLR, FAST (Microsoft Enterprise Search), Google Appliance Search, Verity/Autonomy, Surfray, Speed og Mind, Oracle etc.
The choice of platform has depended on needs and opportunities. We have hands-on experience in implementing such solutions and we are able to solve the organizational and technical challenges we meet during the projects.
