Find out how enterprise search tools *really* work
The Enterprise Search Report will help your enterprise make informed search technology strategies and buying decisions.
Published by the same trusted team that has been providing vendor-neutral technology evaluations for the past 5 years, the report provides a comprehensive overview of search solution providers and best practices. The bulk of the report entails comparative evaluations--each 10 to 20 pages long--one for each of 28 enterprise search offerings.
The Enterprise Search Report can help your team
* Save time in the selection process
* Create an effective vendor shortlist
* Avoid selecting the wrong product
* Budget more accurately
* Avoid painful setbacks
Now available in its 3rd edition, the 500-page report addresses several essential issues for an enterprise investigating search solutions, including:
* Practical product selection roadmaps for large and small enterprises;
* Sample ROI analyses including a detailed examination of total costs of ownership and sample search project budgets;
* Answers to the 50 most commonly asked enterprise search questions;
* Comprehensive review of major players' approaches, including Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, Google, Autonomy/Verity, IBM, FAST, Endeca, and 20 others.
Like other CMS Watch offerings, the Enterprise Search Report does not rank "best" vendors, but instead details the strengths and weaknesses of the various players, identifies their suitability for different use cases, and isolates vendor tendencies that may influence long-term product roadmaps.
The report is ideal for those who are looking to develop a business-driven enterprise search strategy, or who are considering selecting a search product and need unbiased technical assessments, or who simply need a comprehensive guide to this confusing, fast-changing landscape.
List of vendors evaluated: IBM, Oracle, Microsoft, SAP, Autonomy, Convera, FAST Search & Transfer, Hummingbird, OpenText, Google, Thunderstone, Coveo (formerly Copernic), dtSearch, GoDaddy (formerly Innerprise), Mondosoft, ISYS USA (formerly Odyssey ISYS), FunnelBack (formerly Panoptic), TeraText, YourAmigo, Blossom Software, WebSideStory (formerly Atomz), Endeca, Entopia, InQuira, Recommind, Siderean, and Vivisimo
