OpenSource Connection’s Services

When it comes to search relevancy, small changes can have a huge impact – on retail sales, product rollouts, content gathering, and user experience. 

OpenSource Connections helps organizations, working with search engineers and product teams, CTOs and VPs, to assess and make improvements to their search engines. Our service offerings – from one-on-one and group trainings to consulting and accelerated implementation – are designed to help your team grow its own search relevance capabilities.

We’re pioneers in Solr, Elasticsearch, search relevance, personalization and machine learning. Our consultants can assess your search system, fill gaps and make improvements that foster real results. OpenSource Connections defines and embodues the term ‘relevance engineer‘ to cover our unique breadth of skills across both the business-related and technical aspects of search.

Our consultants and relevance engineers make sense of vast, complex, often highly subjective search query information to fine tune your search system and provide your users the most relevant results, whether they’re looking to buy a specific pair of shoes, diagnose a patient’s symptoms, or simply find the building’s parking lot on your website. 

Your organization may already have a search engineer role or team. Traditionally, search engineers have focused broadly on all of search’s concerns, including performance and application development. 

Successful organizations have moved away from expensive proprietary commercial search software to open search software to build search engines, specifically: Apache Lucene/Solr and Elasticsearch. We’re experts in both! However, simply downloading and using open source software doesn’t mean your search engine is any “smarter” or more useful for your users than it was before without implementing expertise in search relevancy, personalization and machine learning. 

Small search relevancy improvements can have a huge impact – on retail sales, product rollouts, content-gathering, and user experience.
