Access to a vast library of content combined with a convenient distribution model has enabled Go1 to double in size every 12 months for the past few years. But such rapid growth forced the organization to regularly upgrade its technologies, including search, to keep pace with demand. "Replacing software tools is expensive and puts a heavy demand on our internal IT resources," says Ducrou. "We needed to find a more scalable search solution that could flex with the business."
The solution had to be especially agile to accommodate Go1's robust service. Go1 has 8 million users and 90,000 courses that comprise 9.8 million learning objects. When all the course objects undertaken by learners are added up, the total is 84 million events, known as enrollments. In addition, each customer has their own portal and can create a unique catalog of courses that may combine modules sourced from Go1's library with content developed in-house for highly customized experiences.
