Search Business Consulting
Selera provides vendor-neutral search consultancy. This means that our recommendations are based on best fit for your business need and not on best fit for a particular search technology. Our experience spans commercial platforms such as Microsoft FAST ESP , Google Search Appliance and open-source search platforms such as Lucene and Solr.
Selera's search business consultants can assist you in understanding how to leverage search to unlock value in your content and to provide better access to your data to both internal and external users. Our consultants work with the stakeholders and business analysts to assist in identifying key strategic objectives and translating these into detailed roadmaps for implementation.
We have provided search business consultancy services across a number of verticals including intranet, business directories, e-commerce and recruitment services.
Our team has a broad experience delivering integrated search solutions across both structured and unstructured content. Our expertise covers the integration of search into backend systems such as databases, file systems, Lotus Notes, SAP, web content to provide whole-of-business views of enterprise data.
Vertical Search Solutions
There are many challenging business problems that can be solved via the use of enterprise search platforms. Typically the problems will be characterised by the need to process and compare large amounts of input data, potentially from disparate sources, in order to match
or calculate some output results. Often, the systems that are the sources of data do not provide the query flexibility or performance that would allow the problem to be solved in a realistic timeframe.
An elegant solution to these types of problems can often be achieved by leveraging a scalable high performance matching engine loaded with an optimised index of the input data. Vertical applications built on enterprise search can bring competitive advantage to businesses and solve costly business problems.
Selera has experience in the design and implementation of vertical applications built on enterprise search components. Our value focuses on the ability to:
- Analyse and understand business data problems incorporating business logic and domain knowledge in order to design and articulate a solution
- Build and integrate all application components to deliver a complete end-to-end vertical application solution including:
- Database integration (DB2, Oracle, etc)
- Exterrnal systems integration (ERP systems, SAP, Lotus, custom applications)
- Search platform design
- Application core services
- Front-end user interfaces
