Consumers expect instant, rewarding experiences no matter the volume of content those experiences rely on. After all, they find what they are looking for on Google, Amazon or Netflix in no time. But all companies do not have the resources of Google, Amazon and Netflix, and building those search and discovery experiences at ultra large scale is hard.
Until now, companies with the world’s largest websites or applications were forced to build out their own search solution and manage infrastructure around the world.
