Why Elasticsearch for WebCenter Content?
Searching and finding your stored content should be fast and easy, but that’s not always the case. As content volumes and search indexes grow, search performance can decrease, making it harder to locate and retrieve content, ultimately reducing trust in your system, which can lead to a drop off in user adoption.
One of the most advanced search solutions available today, Elasticsearch is a game changer for search, adding significant value to your WebCenter Content platform. Elasticsearch for WebCenter Content will give your users the search tool they need, with a range of other capabilities such as analytics and reporting, all available from within the Elastic platform.
Elasticsearch is fast
Elasticsearch is designed to perform. That means fast, accurate searches that significantly reduce the amount of time that you spend looking for information.
Elasticsearch is also a near real-time search platform, meaning the time from when a document is indexed until it becomes searchable is very short.
Elasticsearch meets your users expectations, putting the right information in the right hands – fast.
Elasticsearch is scalable
Compared to the native search in WebCenter Content, Elasticsearch scales more effectively due to its distributed architecture, offering horizontal scaling to expand resources whilst balancing the load between nodes in a cluster.
Elasticsearch is designed to index large volumes of information, whilst retaining high levels of performance – a search tool you can depend on.
Elasticsearch is extensible
Elasticsearch is the central component of the ‘Elastic Stack’, a rich set of tools for data ingestion, enrichment, storage, analysis, and visualization.
Commonly referred to as the ELK Stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana), Elasticsearch can be extended to support a wide range of monitoring, reporting and analytics requirements.
Elasticsearch is enterprise search
Elasticsearch can be easily connected to a wide range of content sources, to index a variety of information types – textual, numerical, geospatial, structured, and unstructured.
Using a single, intuitive search function, your users can search for content stored in any of those sources, all from within the WebCenter Content interface.
