Say Goodbye GSA, Hello Attivio

Replacing an enterprise search technology, regardless of what it is, can disrupt an organization’s normal operations. Even if employees are dissatisfied — complaining every other day to IT about how slow it is or user unfriendly — the old system is familiar, and change can be difficult.

Of course, sometimes a search solution must be replaced because the vendor stops supporting it. And that’s the case now with Google Search Appliance (GSA). License renewals will end in 2018 and support will only last as long as your license. Finding a GSA replacement should now become a priority. 

Most GSA customers signed on so their enterprise search would work just like the Google search we’re all familiar with as consumers. So, many companies are holding on to the GSA for dear life, similar to what we saw with the end-of-life of Windows XP. But it’s coming and soon. Yet, when we polled a webinar audience on this topic last July, it was clear that a lot of companies were still in denial.
