Attivio: The Latest in Enterprise Search

ZDNet does a good job on their review of Attivio’s latest enterprise search application Active Intelligence Engine, or AIE. AIE is able to effectively find specific information through structured and unstructured content through precision SQL querying.

So what’s so special about this feat since the enterprise already offers many search applications? Dennis Howlett brings up the notion that Google itself can not perform such complex and calculated queries based on commonalities. Even though Google is a popular enterprise search favorite, it is not able to effectively sort between enterprise applications, databases, email, documents, and other content management systems.

Hands up, even in it’s beginning stages, it looks like Attivio already has an advantage in enterprise search. With pricing ranging from $2,000 to $50,000 a month depending on system configurations, it looks as if it might give Google a run for its money.
