Enterprise Search

We live in an increasingly digital and rich media age, where the quantity of digital data an organization holds is rising exponentially and where content has expanded to include video, audio, pdf and a host of other formats. Ensuring that all your content is managed and maintained centrally in a scalable, accessible platform is critical to maximizing its value and ensuring that it can be easily found and used.

stock-5Discover the True Value of Your Content

Incorporating powerful search and discovery tools into your content environment is an essential part of developing content agility. By ensuring assets can be found, filtered and manipulated, and enabling context-based discovery and suggestions, you will be able to work more efficiently and better serve both your internal team and your end-consumers.

Enterprise Search Expertise

We have a strong pedigree in the world of enterprise search. Our award-winning faceted search & discovery capabilities have improved content discoverability for publishers such as Dorling Kindersley, Press Association and Tax Analysts, as well as for search experts such as Yell.com and 118.com.

Big Data – Big Problem?

We work with Apache Solr and ElasticSearch for huge-scale distributed indexing of big data archives and federated repositories. Our solutions are flexible, scalable and reliable: so you’ll always be able to find what you need, when you need it, no matter how big your content stores grow.

Award-Winning Faceted Search


Ixxus’ Dan Tuffrey wins Alfresco’s Dashlet Challenge with our faceted search solution

Our integrated Alfresco/Solr faceted search solution won Alfresco’s 2012 Dashlet Challenge, with Jeff Potts, Chief Community Officer at Alfresco, saying that the tool “gives valuable insight into anyone running an Alfresco Share-based site because it allows them to see what people are searching for, including what people are searching for and not finding. These kind of insights make it easier for knowledge-managers to tweak and tune their sites which makes everyone more productive.”

Improve Efficiency and Request-Fulfilment

A study by IDC showed that “an enterprise with 1000 knowledge workers wastes $48,000 per week due to an inability to locate and retrieve information.” Increased productivity leads to more cost-effective working. You can vastly improve the efficiency of working by ensuring that workers can find the information they need, when they need it, as well as eliminating the costs of lost or misplaced data.

Increase Compliance and Data Quality

Ensuring that all content – whether text, image or media – is easily locatable and auditable facilitates rights and regulatory compliance, as well as giving you a better understanding of what assets you have and how and where they are being used.
