Coveo cited as offering the right path to enterprise search deployment
PALO ALTO, CALIF. & QUEBEC CITY, November 19 /CNW/ - Coveo Solutions
Inc., a global provider of secure, enterprise search solutions, announced
today the availability of a new whitepaper by Susan Aldrich, principal analyst
of Greenhill Analysis, entitled "The Right Path to Enterprise Search: Grass
Roots vs. the Enterprise Infrastructure Play." This whitepaper outlines four
steps businesses can take in deploying successful enterprise search without
getting into a full-blown, costly and time-consuming enterprise infrastructure
project. It also discusses the value offered to businesses that deploy
enterprise search solutions on a departmental level versus across the
company's entire infrastructure.
Enterprise infrastructure projects typically involve extensive planning,
big budgets, and deployments that often stretch from months to many years.
This does not fit today's search scenario, where departments and business
units are expecting immediate bottom-line value in high quality search.
According to the white paper, companies looking to deploy enterprise search
need to consider a grass roots approach. By doing so, they can achieve an
enterprise search capability that is pragmatic and quickly deployed, enabling
the coordination and collaboration their enterprises need.
"Highly effective enterprise search can improve customer service, reduce
call volumes by 50 percent, reduce contact center costs by 30 percent, and
double online revenues," said Susan Aldrich. "However, many of the current
enterprise search solutions being considered by businesses today are often
ponderous and expensive, because they promise capabilities over and above what
these organizations require to achieve the results they need today."
"The grass roots approach to enterprise search creates some special
requirements, most particularly, that there are no obstacles for departments
doing pilots and that there is a way to merge all the individual deployments
into a seamless whole," adds Aldrich. "With its no cost downloads, free
connectors, as-is install, and its mirrored distributed indexing, Coveo
Enterprise Search 5.0 is unique in its ability to solve both of these
"You just don't need the Queen Elizabeth II to cross a lake," commented
Laurent Simoneau, president and CEO of Coveo. "By showing the value of a grass
roots enterprise search deployment, Greenhill's white paper validates Coveo's
approach. We encourage businesses that are looking to deploy successful
enterprise search solutions without a huge investment to download this white
paper and consider this approach."
