Artirix has recently launched a search service for a large financial publisher that really proved to be a great test the Artirix platform. This customer came to us as they had a legacy commercial search technology installation that had a poor user experience, poor relevancy, and a high cost of ownership. They wanted to scale for more dynamic and personalized content, and needed a backend that would future proof their growth.
After a large investment in Artirix core development, coupled with new features from the Open Source community (in particular ElasticSearch), we’re proud to announce the release of a major new version of our platform.
