You Can Replace Your Legacy Search Without Trauma

No matter what search technology an organization uses, replacing it can disrupt 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. 

Legacy search replacement

Of course, sometimes a search solution must be replaced because the vendor stops supporting it. A good example would be HP selling off its intelligent data operating layer (IDOL) product, a.k.a. Autonomy, to Micro Focus. Who knows what they’ll do with it?

In a similar vein, Microsoft ended support for its FAST search product. FAST was Linux based and Microsoft decided after a couple of years to switch the platform to Windows. For some companies that was ok, for others not so much.

And Google abandoned its search appliance in favor of a cloud-based alternative. Clearly, Google knows a lot about cloud search. But that doesn’t mean all their customers want to use the cloud for their enterprise search application.

But the good news for customers of all these search products—and anyone else who wants or needs to change their search platform—is that search is a very active and innovative space right now.
