(Gawkwire.com) –  Findwise, a Scandinavian IT consultancy focused on search-driven Findability solutions utilising enterprise search technology, has expanded its solutions portfolio by joining the Global Partner Program led by Lucid Imagination, the commercial company for Apache Lucene/Solr search technology. This partnership agreement further demonstrates the growing momentum for Apache Lucene/Solr technology in Europe. Findwise has been selected as one of the seven inaugural reseller partners for Lucid Imagination worldwide and will offer Lucid Imagination’s products and support services across Scandinavia.
Findwise enables its customers to reach business goals by maximising the ‘Findability’ of information. Utilising the full potential of enterprise search technology, Findability creates value by enabling easy and secure access to desired information. The open source search technology offered through Lucid Imagination solutions enables Findwise to offer new and innovative search-enabled applications that deliver competitive advantage, scalability and cost economies to end customers. Companies such as The Halland County Council (Sweden), Kretsloppsrådet (The Ecocycle Council from Sweden), and Västra Götalandsregionen (second largest health care organisation in Sweden) have already benefitted from increased usability, functionality and performance of Apache Lucene/Solr.
“As a company specialising in Findability, it was a natural progression to join forces with Lucid Imagination. Our Northern European customers are mainly large, blue chip organisations with complex search demands. Their interest in open source search is growing rapidly; by working with Lucid Imagination we can now guarantee enterprise-class support for Apache Lucene/Solr solutions,” said Helge Legernes, Founding Partner, Findwise.
“Lucid Imagination has invested significant resources to develop local partnerships and grow its customer base in Europe.  We are therefore pleased to see a growing interest in the economics and the technological power of the Lucene/Solr enterprise search platform in the region. Findwise brings its unique expertise to the Lucene/Solr marketplace. With a reliable foundation of training, support subscriptions and support from Lucid, our partners can help their customers get competitive advantage from search,” said Eric Gries, CEO, Lucid Imagination.
Findwise is Platinum Sponsor of the Apache Lucene EuroCon 2010 presented by Lucid Imagination. The event takes place 18-21 May 2010 in Prague and is Europe’s premier Lucene and Solr user conference. For more information please visit http://lucene-eurocon.org/.
