Find Meaning in Your Data With Elasticsearch

Posted by on March 28, 2017

We’re surrounded by data everywhere we go, and the amount is growing with each action we take. We rely on it regularly, probably a lot more than we even realize or would like to admit. From searching for nearby restaurants while traveling, to reading online product reviews prior to making a purchase, and finding the best route home based on real-time traffic patterns, data helps us make informed decisions every day.

However, all that data on its own is just data. The real value comes when you can find the right, relevant data when it’s needed. Better yet, take it a step further and find meaning in your data, and that’s where the real goldmine is.

Businesses are increasingly turning to search and analytics solutions to derive more value from their data, helping to provide the deep insights necessary to make better business decisions. Some popular use cases include:

  • Intelligent Search Experiences to discover and deliver relevant content
  • Security Analytics to better understand your infrastructure’s security
  • Data Visualization to present your data in a meaningful way
  • Log Analytics to gain deeper operational insight

At Rivet Logic, we realize the importance of data, and see the challenges businesses are facing in trying to make sense of their growing data pools. We’re excited to have partnered with Elastic – the company behind a suite of popular open source projects including ElasticsearchKibanaBeats, and Logstash – to deliver intelligent search and analytics solutions to help our customers get the most value out of their data, allowing them to make actionable improvements to websites for enhanced customer experiences!

A Real-world Use Case

How might this apply in a real-world scenario, you ask?

An example is a global hospitality customer of ours, who has partnered with Rivet Logic to implement three internal facing web properties that enable the company to perform its day to day business operations. With a reach spanning across 110+ countries, these sites are deployed in the cloud on Amazon AWS throughout the US, Europe and Asia Pacific, consisting of many data sources and used across multiple devices.

This customer needed a way to gain deeper insight into these systems — how the sites are being used along with the types of issues encountered to help improve operational efficiencies. Using Elasticsearch and Kibana, this customer is able to gain much better visibility into each site’s utility. Through detailed metrics, combined with the ability to perform aggregations and more intelligent queries, this customer can now gain much deeper insight into their data set through in depth reports and dashboards. In addition, the Elastic Stack solution aggregates all system logs into one place, making it possible to perform complex analysis to provide insightful data to better address operational concerns.

The Power of Solr Search with Alfresco

Posted by on October 22, 2010

To keep the momentum going after Lucene Revolution and to kick start our joint partner marketing efforts with Lucid Imagination, we decided to co-sponsor a webcast on leveraging search with Alfresco. The webcast was held yesterday and provided an overview of the technical approach used for Solr/Alfresco integration, including:

  • How to provide accurate, targeted, real-time indexing for each page
  • Full editorial control through componentized pages, for fine-grained control over different areas
  • Faster, easier search customization through LucidWorks Enterprise
  • Dynamic generation of website visitor experiences as seen in several public sites

The webcast also discussed the quality and scalability of Lucene/Solr and how it’s being leveraged in large-scale sites including Twitter, LinkedIn and Zappos.com. Lastly, a sneak peak of the new LucidWorks Enterprise development platform showcased some of the built-in features that makes developing search applications easier and more accessible.

The slides from the presentation are available for download here, http://bit.ly/searchalfresco.

LucidWorks Enterprise Launched to Deliver Enterprise Search

Posted by on October 14, 2010

Lucid Imagination officially launched LucidWorks Enterprise (LWE) last week at the 2010 Lucene Revolution conference in Boston. LucidWorks Enterprise is the search solution development platform built on the power of Apache Solr/Lucene. By building and extending the scalable power of Solr open source with vital new features, this integrated platform simplifies and empowers predictable, reliable search application development. LucidWorks Enterprise focuses on providing:

  • Search within reach, makes search accessible to the broad range of application developers and architects by taming the complexity of search
  • Build better search applications faster through accelerated streamlined Solr app development and integration with search experience innovations. With a robust set of APIs built atop Solr, LucidWorks Enterprise simplifies integration while delivering the full breadth of search capabilities — faceted navigation, auto-suggest, spellcheck; fine-grained results and relevancy tuning; and full web-based encapsulation of the Lucene search libraries in XML-based search & data configuration
  • Lowering the cost of growth, with a subscription purchase price five to ten times lower than equivalent commercial alternatives

Some of the features of LWE include:

  • Integrated Crawler
  • Admin and Config UI
  • Query Parser
  • Click Scoring
  • Alerts

Rivet Logic was one of the partners that participated in the Beta Test of LucidWorks Enterprise. Hear what our very own Sumer Jabri and Paras Jain, along with other system integrators, have to say about their experience working with LWE.

Rivet Logic Partners with Lucid Imagination

Posted by on July 06, 2010

Last week, Rivet Logic officially announced its newly formed partnership with Lucid Imagination, the commercial company dedicated to Apache Lucene/Solr open source technology. This is an exciting partnership for us since we’ve already been working with Lucene/Solr technologies for quite a while and have implemented it in various Alfresco and Liferay projects.

It’s exciting to see how much the Lucene/Solr community has grown over the years and the adoption of its technologies into major enterprises worldwide. Lucene/Solr is now being used to power major sites like whitehouse.gov, LinkedIn, Netflix, and Monster.

This partnership reflects our commitment to partner with leading vendors in the open source community to design and implement enterprise-grade open source solutions, provide responsive consulting support, and advance the use of open source software through innovation and community leadership.
