Apache
Apache Lucene is a perfect text search implementation where the heap space usage needs to be kept to its minimal. It also enables search based on various search fields and most importantly the search and index process can happen simultaneously. The only scenario where it might be less appropriate would be when the index size grows too big. We have witnessed few scalable issues where the search would take a while when the index size is too large.

Luigi's Box is very good in analysing the customers behaviours. Based on the algorithms in the background it is capable to predict and suggest to the customer suggestions of the products that the customer does not even think of. When you want to set up more complicated ways to increase a conversion, it is harder to set up and then there is a big need to be a skilled person in order to set it all up in a correct way.

Pros
Apache
  • We found Apache Lucene to be extremely performant in querying large amounts of data and retrieving the correct files based on the metadata provided.
  • The online community offers great support for the product. Even though it is an open source tool, it is not difficult to find help online for it.
  • When we were creating a proof of concept application, we found that the software worked just as well, while being run locally on a resource-limited PC.

The admin of Luigis Box is very easy to learn, provides functionality as well as data for decision making. Other then that, Luigi's Box is also user-friendly for customers. So, while there is a learning curve for the initial setup in the back-end, our users are happy and converting well.

The search and index performance of [Apache] Lucene is excellent and the quality of results is good, if not better. For implementing it with small scale applications it is a no brainer, Lucene is the best and most cost effective solution. Learning curve is not too steep either.

We had really good references for Luigi's Box so we barely considered any other option or alternative. I must say that we do not regret so far. Mostly because the implementation was fast and easy and thanks to self learning algorithm, Luigi's Box needs minimum maintenance. The product seemed a bit pricy at the beginning but it paid of.
