The power of polyglot searching
In the previous years we have got the Polyglot Persistence. This is a fancy term which means that when storing data, it is best to use multiple data storage technologies, chosen based upon the way data is being used by. If we have multiple persistence, then sometimes we need polyglot operations. One of the most popular use case in Big Data is searching. Almost all websites provide a search function to their users, to be able to find what they are looking for. Usually it is an Apache Lucene based solution, like Elasticsearch or Solr. I will show you how to enrich this kind of searching with the power of graph based searches, and implement a polyglot search functionality, where the results are based on the cooperation of a search engine and a graph based real time recommendation.
