Expanding Information Access Initiatives with Embedded Enterprise Search
This paper, written by Enterprise Strategy Group analyst Brian Babineau, focuses specifically on what application developers—specifically, independent software vendors (ISVs) and solution integrators—need to do in order to satiate this emerging market demand. When comparing enterprise search with Internet search, a veritable litany of differences springs to mind, including security, ability to support multiple content types, and refined relevancy weightings. Users also need the ability to navigate large data sets—basic keyword queries return far too many results, negatively impacting productivity. Further, IT departments have to run enterprise applications that have search capabilities. Embedded search should not increase the operational burden on IT.
Fortunately for ISVs and solution integrators, enterprise search has evolved to become more than just a standalone solution. Vivisimo has made it a priority to build a secure search platform that can be easily embedded into an enterprise application without sacrificing any of the advanced capabilities that increase information accessibility. This paper also describes some of Vivisimo’s capabilities and how ISVs and solution integrators can leverage them to address evolving search challenges within their respective applications.
