Lucid Imagination Launches Enterprise Search Partner Program
Lucid Imagination, developers of enterprise-grade search solutions based on the open source Apache Lucene and Solr technologies, has launched a global partner program for VARs and systems integrators. Here’s the scoop.
The Lucene search library, in conjunction with the Solr search server, is so well-suited for enterprise search, says Lucid Imagination CEO Eric Gries, that companies like Nike, AT&T, and Verizon use it themselves. Where Lucid Imagination comes in is packaging the two into a certified, easily-deployable distribution, providing support and training for customers.
And now, with the launch of the Lucid Imagination Global Partner Program, VARs have an endpoint solution available to them that’s scalable, reliable, and, Gries says, capable of finding and indexing even the most hard-to-pin-down documents and e-mails.
Essentially, Gries says that all Lucid Imagination is trying to do is give businesses the same kind of ability to find their files and conversations that consumers have to come to expect from services like Gmail, and they believe that open source is the way to do it.
