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.
