Lucid Imagination Moves to the Enterprise

January 7, 2011

Has Lucid Imagination Found the Open Source Solution for Enterprise Search?” asks if, like the Star Trek Enterprise, Lucid Imagination has done what no other open source search engine has done before and created a product worth paying for.  Why not just use Apache Solr/Lucene?

The article points out that without Lucid you can’t just index and search a set of documents, you have to create each connection type, and, most importantly, there is no security.  It’s also easy to change over to Lucid since it’s built on top of the Apache engine without any significant alterations.  To sum up:

Lucid Imagination reduces the technical complexity of leveraging Solr by providing an automated installer, configurable data connectors and a web-based administration interface. In addition to the add-on to Solr/Lucene users can easily observe, multiple enhancements were made to make the solution easier to deploy to the cloud.

If you’re interested in trying it out, the annual fees are straightforward too.
