Examine the Future of Search

Examine the Future of Search

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of “The future of search” to their offering.

The enterprise search market has entered a period of both innovation and rationalisation similar to that which we saw in the enterprise content management (ECM) arena during 2006-2007. The most disruptive elements in the near future are likely to be the actions of Microsoft and Google. The current market driver is the need to quickly retrieve information for business or legislation-based requirements. However, there is a wide range of smaller, functionally very mature, often vertically-focused, enterprise information access products that Mike Davis believes organisations should consider alongside the ‘big names’.
