Blurring the boundaries – CMS and Enterprise Search (Presentation by Stephen Morgan, MD of Squiz UK, from Online Information/IMS 2009)

In any organisation that relies on the processing and management of information, it is critical that that information can be quickly and easily found, by both internal and external users, in order for its value to be utilized. As such, the CMS and enterprise search markets are inseparable and must work in perfect synergy in order to deliver successful results. Search needs to be fast, accurate and effective and results need to be displayed in a meaningful and categorised manner.

Squiz recently acquired Funnelback, an enterprise search company, for these very reasons. Funnelback is an advanced, industrial strength search solution that searches content assets across internet, intranet, database and shared network drives, as well as electronic document management and portal systems. It integrates seamlessly with MySource Matrix, Squiz's flagship open source content management system, providing the opportunity for the company's growing portfolio of high end enterprise customers to deliver more sophisticated and intuitive search solutions.
