Gartner Positions Endeca in Leaders Quadrant of 2009 Information Access Technology Magic Quadrant Report
Sep 17, 2009 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Endeca Technologies, Inc. announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of the 2009 Information Access Technology Magic Quadrant report.
The analysis is based on Endeca's "Ability to Execute" and "Completeness of Vision."
The report "assesses vendors with capabilities that go beyond enterprise search to encompass a range of technologies. Their capabilities include search; federated search content analytics, such as content classification, categorization and clustering; fact and entity extraction; taxonomy creation and management; information presentation (for example, visualization) to support analysis and understanding; and desktop search to address user-controlled repositories in order to locate and "invoke" documents, data and e-mail."
According to Gartner, vendors listed in the Leaders quadrant "demonstrate significant architectural flexibility. They also have a means of determining relevancy of results returned to users and providing developers with the tools and flexibility to tune these relevancy settings. They have the finances to weather hard times and sufficient resources to invest in both organic and inorganic technology and business growth."
Endeca's search applications help people make better decisions by giving them access to any information from anywhere any way they need it, letting users search, sort, filter, and analyze volumes of diverse and changing data.
