TNR Global’s New Relationship with Lucid Imagination Adds Value for Clients

by Karen Lynn
Late last April 2012, TNR Global entered into a strategic relationship with California’s Lucid Imagination. One of the many benefits to this alliance is that in addition to the integration services TNR has historically offered, clients now can obtain enterprise class search platforms designed by Lucid Imagination and integrated by TNR Global’s search team. “Lucid’s products expand upon open source tools to offer many additional features and extensive support on their product line” said Michael McIntosh, VP of Search Technologies for TNR.  “Lucid’s product offerings are solid and they have a range of options that we can now offer by way of our relationship with them. They round out our services and solutions very nicely.”  Details on Lucid Imagination’s enterprise class search platform can be viewed at Lucid Imagination’s website.
TNR still provides customized integration for search including Lucene Solr as well as other open source and commercial products. “When a client approaches us with a problem they need solved, we always look at what they need most out of a solution. During our evaluation period, we look at a number of factors. One solution doesn’t always do the trick–we always suggest what is best for the client based on their particular circumstance.”  This strategy allows TNR to offer a range of solutions, including support.  “Now that we are in a relationship with Lucid, we have even more options–and having choices is good for our clients.” said Karen Lynn, Director of Business Development.

TNR Global to present at Apache Lucene Eurocon 2011 in Barcelona

by Karen Lynn

We are happy to announce that TNR Global’s own Michael McIntosh will be presenting at the Apache Lucene Eurocon 2011 in Barcelona this October.  Michael’s talk is titled Enterprise Search:  FAST ESP to Lucene Solr.” His presentation will discuss migration from the FAST ESP platform to a Lucene Solr search platform. There are many reasons an IT department with a large scale search installation would want to move from a proprietary platform to Lucene Solr. In the case of FAST Search, the company’s purchase by Microsoft and discontinuation of the Linux platform has created an urgency for FAST users. Illustrated through actual case studies, the presentation will include challenges and concerns, present solutions and work-arounds to overcome migration issues.

Michael has more than 16 years of experience in large scale systems design and operation, online consumer product development, high volume transaction processing and engineering management. He has extensive experience developing, integrating and maintaining search technology solutions for companies such as FAST Search and Lycos.

We’re excited that Michael will be presenting in Barcelona this fall.  Please introduce yourself if you’re able to go!
