Overall Satisfaction with Inbenta Enterprise Search

Inbenta Enterprise Search was one of the tools used only by our search results team to power our search backend infrastructure. Most other teams in the organization worked with alternatives like Apache Solr. Inbenta Enterprise Search provided our team with an easy to use interface for semantic search and NLP interpretations.
  • Fairly easy to use interface.
  • Quick to onboard new users, both in terms of access as well as training.
  • The NLP-based semantic search feature is quite impressive.
  • It is a fairly new tool in the market, so not much market feedback exists for this. This made us apprehensive in using it.
  • The documentation and online forums are bare minimum.
  • Quite buggy when working with multiple sources.
  • Enabled our developers to quickly deploy changes to the search model.
  • NLP-powered semantic search feedback provides good actionable insights.
Apache Solr to Inbenta is like Java to Python. Apache Solr is powerful and handles complex search platforms well. Inbenta, on the other hand, is meant to be easy to use and does not lay too much emphasis on performance. If you are a small or medium business, Inbenta may suit your needs better. However, if you wish to manage a large and complex search platform, Solr is the way to go.
If you are looking for an enterprise search platform that offers an easy to use interface and if high performance is not really your priority, then I believe Inbenta Enterprise Search would fit your use case. For most other situations, I would recommend using a tried and tested search platform like Apache Solr.
