Search Re-Platforming – The Evolution of a New Platform

Posted: 16 Dec 2019

Date Written: December 16, 2019


The Search Re-Platforming initiative is modernizing search for LexisNexis. Our vision is to increase search performance and release frequency to continuously provide value to New LexisNexis customers while providing development teams with an easily configurable search platform meeting market and product needs. We are building a best-in-class search experience, delivering dramatically faster search performance, and enabling a direct path to production delivery.

We are overcoming the parity and relevance challenges of search by reducing the subjectivity of human testing and increasing the level of automated testing for all comparison points. By utilizing the Paved Road to Production, we have implemented a sophisticated continuous integration and deployment strategy that enables us, our partners, and consumers to develop and continually release improvements to our customers.
