Searchers are driving a lot of revenue from your e-commerce solution – so you need to cater to them by bringing relevant search results. Making searches relevant is not easy, however, using Sitecore Experience Commerce to collect data and drive segmentation, and integrate this collected data into your e-commerce search will improve the search relevancy tremendously. We will show you how you can use predictive personalization from the Sitecore Experience Platform to segment your users – and use the Experience Commerce Collected data to train Apache Solr with Machine Learning to create more relevant results. We will use the Apache Solr Learning to improve search results – and use predictive personalization to drive you to the right ranking models
