Understanding Search Options in the Post-GSA World

Posted by Bryan McKay, Engagement Manager on Aug 12, 2016

Webinar: Google Search Appliance fades away, so what's next?Google’s choice to discontinue the Google Search Appliance and innovate in the cloud for an enterprise search solution aligns with its strategy and goals. But for GSA users, the switch brings questions. Will we stay with the appliance. . . ?

Or is it time for a cloud-based service? Which solution best fits our need? Are there consultants and vendors with knowledge and skills that can help us execute a successful replacement?

The webinar Google Search Appliance Fades Away. So What's Next? provides a good place to begin exploring options. Watch and hear an overview of search technology’s evolution from the 1990s into today’s powerful analytic engines that supply undiscovered insights through data integration and machine learning. Both appliance and cloud-based options are covered.

Mike Gualtieri, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, presents research results about how companies are using and benefiting from modern enterprise search. He also gives tips on how to choose the right solution and shows Forrester’s “wave” methodology comparison report on enterprise search solutions.

Daniel Fallmann of Mindbreeze discusses how deployment of the Mindbreeze InSpire appliance works and provides a comparison of an appliance versus a “server farm” model. Watch the webinar now!
