Why Read This Report

Welcome to modern enterprise search. These solutions have evolved well beyond simple keyword search to provide contextual searches that provide more relevant results and valuable knowledge that can stand alone or be embedded in applications. If you haven't looked at enterprise search technology in a while, it's time to give it another look. In Forrester's 31-criteria evaluation, we identified nine big data search and knowledge discovery solutions providers — Attivio, Coveo Solutions, Google, HP, IBM, Lexmark International, Lucidworks, Mindbreeze, and Sinequa — and researched, analyzed, and scored their current market offerings. This report details our findings about how well each vendor fulfills our criteria and where they stand in relation to each other to help application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals select the right solution to grace their enterprise with the power of knowledge on demand.
