Algolia

If you have a dedicated developer who has the technical know-how to delve deep into Algolia's documentation to figure out what makes it tick, this is the product for you. Algolia's framework is extremely powerful, making search instantaneous and providing users with results at break-neck speeds. If all you need is great search, but you do not require a complex relevancy algorithm running it, Algolia will work well for you. The more complex your use case, the more expensive the product becomes.

IBM Watson Content Analytics

IBM Content Analytics is well suited for organizations with the resources to invest a significant amount of energy in an advanced analytics engine. The software improved the productivity of analysts and programmers. The software is not suitable for companies that just want Excel-type analyses or that lack the capabilities of doing advanced analytics.

Pros

Algolia

  • Algolia is brain-dead simple to set up. I've implemented search with Algolia in a dozen different ways now, and it never took me longer than a few minutes to get the functionality I want. With Algolia, the only challenge is designing your search UI -- if you don't want to use their baked in UI solutions.
  • Results come back incredibly fast. I'm not sure how Algolia does it, but every keystroke I make in a search field returns new results instantly. It's hard to believe that I'm searching large datasets on a remote server when it works so fast.
  • Very little customization is needed for 99% of use-cases. Algolia's out of the box setup works great, and it takes no prior knowledge to set up.

IBM Watson Content Analytics

  • Impressive and efficient indexing system.
  • Rarely does the indexing have issues that need to rebuild/reindex.
  • Searches are almost instantaneous and end users can move on to the next task.

Cons

Algolia

  • Algolia can be a bit complex -- for smaller companies or companies without many tech resources, it may be difficult to implement and use without the help of a third party
  • Manually manipulating search results (for specific queries having listings show up first) is a bit difficult to do without custom developing that functionality

IBM Watson Content Analytics

  • Content Analytics is competing with open source software that comes with a price tag of $0, but is costly from a human-time perspective. Although human-time is valued, it's hard to see it.
  • Because Content Analytics is so good at making the user interface easy, it's sometimes more difficult to do more custom analysis.
  • Content Analytics does not run as quickly as other companies' analytics solutions.

Support Rating

Algolia

Algolia 9.0
Based on 2 answers
We did have one occurrence where we maxed out our plan and the service didn't respond well. This is probably a very common scenario and it took half a day to get things back to normal with slow response time. Price is also a consideration. If you are restrained in that sense you might want to dedicate the time to having your own setup from the get-go.

Alternatives Considered

Algolia

Algolia at first seemed and proved to be the fastest compared to the other search engines. It is very easy to implement. Also, it had a 24x7 support which proved to be very useful. It is also useful for all types of clients weather it be organizations or individuals. It can also handle typos. It also focuses on features like API and SSL Security. Also, it is designed to search records, not pages. These were some of the reasons we went ahead with Algolia.

IBM Watson Content Analytics

IBM Watson is not quite in the same category as Worldox or NetDocuments as both are full-fledged document management. However, both vendors provide a similar searching and indexing product. Worldox provides searching and indexing but the Indexer is somewhat prone to issues. IBM Watson does not have the stability/consistency issues. NetDocuments is cloud-hosted document management and its index does not seem to have issues. That being said, there is a large premium as the data is all stored in a cloud container with the management system.

Return on Investment

Algolia

  • It's too early to measure any increase in our transactions
  • We have good customer feedback on the Algolia search function
  • We are looking at other apps in development where we can also leverage the power of Algolia

IBM Watson Content Analytics

  • Content Analytics has been a positive ROI in that it made analysts more productive.
  • Content Analytics has been a negative ROI in some cases because it has a much smaller user base than other open source products. This smaller user base makes it more difficult to accomplish certain tasks.
  • Content Analytics has made text analytics more than delightful. I love it.
