Why an administration interface ?

A search solution, it is a lot of human intervention to maintain the relevance at its best. After all, if Google does it for its own search engine, why wouldn't you ! Apache Solr provides many configuration capabilities, but they are accessible through XML or APIs. In Datafari, we add a graphical layer to allow for a non technical person (the search expert) to do its daily management, and to "give life" to its search engine.
