Case Study

Catalog Modernization – IHS


IHS was embarking on big data project, moving to the cloud, and investigating search improvement options for its parts catalog offering.


DataStax, an Azure Big Data ISV Partner, turned to Cloudwick to get the company from POC to production quickly and successfully. The first project was the catalyst for the company to move over 300 enterprise catalogs from on-premises to Azure.


Cloudwick improved search accuracy so that performance has gone from 15 seconds to <100 ms, making it the preferred database for the multi-billion dollar global business.  The move to Azure provides IHS with flexibility, agility and cost savings.

Modernizing to NoSQL to Gain Competitive Advantage

A leading provider of business information, insight and analytics chose Cloudwick to modernize its online catalog using Cassandra to realize larger scale and expanded revenue opportunities. The company selected DataStax DSE for its online catalog and management offering, storing and serving up parts numbers, information and inventory availability. In order to provide optimal search performance and accuracy for this catalog, the company needed Solr to provide full-text search capabilities, distributed search, rich document search and handling (Word, PDF), index replication, real-time indexing, and fault tolerance. This solution, DataStax DSE Search, would enable customers to quickly and accurately obtain parts information, data sheets and availability to enhance business efficiency and reduce procurement costs.

Looking for Expertise

Like most enterprises, the company lacked internal resources to build this next-generation online catalog and search functionality. Cloudwick is the leading Azure and DataStax Big Data-as-a-Service provider and worked closely with both account teams to take the company from pilot-to-production in just three months. Cloudwick deployed DataStax DSE (Cassandra), DataStax Search (Solr), and fine-tuned and indexed the company’s database so search results would be prioritized according to preferred parameters (exact match, prefix wildcard, etc.). The solution provides the company’s customers with a powerful database and catalog service with highly enhanced search results as well as significantly improved performance and accuracy. Customers can quickly and accurately obtain parts information, data sheets and availability to enhance business efficiency and reduce procurement costs. The initial Cloudwick project was the catalyst for the company to move more than 300 online enterprise catalogs from on-premises to Azure.
