In “NetSuite Moves Upmarket with New E-Commerce Software,” Don Davis looks at the recently unveiled e-commerce technology from NetSuite Inc.
SuiteCommerce seeks to allow e-retailers to more easily customize content of Web pages that are tied into back-end financial systems along with tailored pages for mobile and other devices. It also aims to make it easier to plug in software from other vendors.
NetSuite will offer SuiteCommerce in two options. The Enterprise version is aimed at larger companies and is designed to handle extensive product catalogs. It includes the Solr search technology, open source software developed by the Apache Lucene project that’s known for its ability to sort through large quantities of data quickly. It also includes as a standard feature product feeds to online marketplaces like eBay and Amazon.
Apache Lucene is the successful Java-based search library available for free as open source under the liberal Apache Software License. LucidWorks is the:
. . . search platform that accelerates and simplifies development of highly accurate, scalable, and cost-effective search applications. It delivers full open source Apache Lucene/Solr community innovation in a convenient, commercial-grade package, with support from the world’s leading experts in open source search.
