Recognized for focus on Accelerating Deployment of Business-Critical Search Applications

NEWTON, Mass., Sept. 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Attivio, the Data Dexterity Company, today announced that Forrester Research has named Attivio a leader in its report, The Forrester Wave™: Big Data Search and Knowledge Discovery Solutions, Q3 2015.  Forrester evaluated vendors' strength in architecture, security, administration, customization, business applications, implementation support and partnerships, as factors in its assessment of their current offering, strategy and market presence.  

Forrester's Wave™ methodology evaluates vendors along three dimensions – strategy, current offering, and market presence – using past research, user need assessments, and vendor and expert interviews to develop a comprehensive set of evaluation criteria. The report cited Attivio's focus on accelerating the deployment of search applications that are critical to business. 

"Functional innovations in enterprise search aren't just enhancing the ability to deliver on traditional use cases," the report said, "they're also enabling enterprise search to serve new and novel needs.  From research and development (R&D) to business intelligence (BI), to automated website composition, search and knowledge discovery solutions are a fundamental technology of the insight-driven enterprise."
