Magento

Ewave specializes in executing projects using the Magento e-commerce platform. This flexible, open source, PHP-based platform enables the setup of e-commerce websites in a range of languages and currencies. It supports all business processes required for advanced, professional sales management on the internet. The system boasts strong UX design capabilities with a broad selection of templates. It is managed with an intuitive and friendly interface and requires no programming knowledge from the users.

Elasticsearch

Efficient location of enterprise information is becoming ever more complex with the years due to multiplicity of users (front-end and back-end alike), system heterogeneity (different technologies, periods and vendors) and numerous logs with different formats and structures. Complexity is aggravated further by the lack of real-time monitoring of key information.

Ewave responds to the challenge with Elasticsearch, a JSON-based advanced search and analytics engine that allows users manage and search for information from a range of Big Data sources. This is an open source product accessible through a comprehensive and detailed API. It features robust morphological capabilities, offers real-time indexation and allows fast searches in a range of dictionaries classified by information types (structured, unstructured, geographic, metric and more), in various information sources and databases and in the social networks.
