Search engine applications have become an essential part of
the information landscape in today's enterprises. From
major corporations to startup companies, in government and
academic institutions, search engines have been pushed into
the spotlight as the "go-to" technology to pull corporate
information assets into a common framework.
Information Today, Inc.,
Shore Communications, Inc., and respected analyst Jean
Bedord recently completed an in-depth study of the dynamic
enterprise search marketplace. More than 250 search
professionals - users, buyers, and champions of the
technology - provided unique insight into the trends driving
and shaping enterprise search. This primary market research
was supplemented by in-person interviews with
representatives of market leading vendors.
