Forrester: Microsoft: The Latest Disruptor In Enterprise Search
MOre recognition for Microsoft’s effort and persistance in Enterprise Search …
Microsoft makes a very aggressive move into the enterprise search market by introducing the free download of Microsoft Search Server Express 2008 (MSSE), which is sure to disrupt the already confusing search space. Though free, MSSE has a substantial set of capabilities, most notably its connectivity to many intranet- and Internet-based resources, including Microsoft Exchange, IBM’s Lotus Notes, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, and even EMC’s Documentum and IBM’s FileNet enterprise content management systems. MSSE trumps Google’s search appliances by offering a stronger set of administration, reporting, and connectivity features, and it can be upgraded to the Microsoft Search Server 2008 (MSS) licensed version that enables multiserver scalability and high availability. Businesses looking at any enterprise or workgroup search deployment should take note: Microsoft has dealt itself in to the search game and with MSSE is placing good-sized bets that it will build even more momentum in its SharePoint workplace strategy.
