Vivisimo Selected as #1 Private Firm in Enterprise Search Space, According to Leading Market Research Firm


Vivisimo, the leader in Information Optimization, announced it received the highest ranking in Ovum’s 2010 Decision Matrix for Enterprise Search and Retrieval (ESR) for a private firm. The report evaluated twelve vendors including Autonomy, Endeca, Exalead, Google, IBM, Microsoft, and Oracle. According to the Ovum report, Vivisimo’s Velocity platform is one of the most technologically advanced systems of the group, which is what catapulted the company to the head of the report’s “Consider” group.

“Ovum’s classification of Vivisimo in its 2010 report is a true reflection of the considerable mindshare and marketshare the company has received as a result of solving core business and operational challenges with our Information Optimization platform for government and commercial organizations,” said John Kealey, CEO of Vivisimo. “One of the most gratifying aspects of the report was how close Vivisimo came to market behemoth and publicly traded Autonomy. For a private firm of our size, its remarkable how much positive change we are creating in the industry as a result of our Information Optimization platform.”

Vivisimo’s classification in the Ovum report underscores one of the company’s most successful years ever. The company has nearly doubled its clientele, with strong penetration in markets such as manufacturing, healthcare, civilian government and defense. Earlier this year Vivisimo secured one of the largest deals in its history, a record $5 million dollar deal with one of the most respected brands in the world. Blending people, processes and technology into its Information Optimization (IO) platform, Vivisimo’s IO has turned into an industry trend as a result of widespread adoption by more than 120 government agencies, Fortune 500 firms and other industry juggernauts that need more than just traditional enterprise search and Business Intelligence functionality to transform their information into quantifiable business value.

Airbus Lifts Off Vivisimo Velocity to Provide More than 50,000 Users the Power of Search

Vivisimo, a Pittsburgh-based leader in enterprise search, installed its Velocity Search Platform with the world’s leading aircraft manufacturer, Airbus. Through this deployment, Velocity is powering search across its corporate-wide intranet and its customers, indexing up to two petabytes of data for more than 50,000 users.

“Our installation with Airbus is a testament of Velocity’s flexibility in deployment and our commitment to work through a highly-complex infrastructure with many data repositories, while respecting the company’s various security parameters,” said John Kealey, CEO of Vivisimo. “Velocity was up to the challenge and we are thrilled with the value it has already shown Airbus users in terms of increasing processes and productivity through the power of search.”

In less than one month since the completed installation of Velocity, search has become the fastest growing application on the customer portal (AirbusWorld) homepage in terms of usage, which has resulted in increased page views. Through the portal site, end-users are now able to search multiple depositories of data available on-line, and leverage innovative search features such as clustering, to find relevant information through an intuitive, business oriented and user-friendly navigation.

The capacity to refine results with Airbus business oriented criteria has become a value add for its end-users. Internally, Airbus support engineers can now use a dedicated release of Velocity to retrieve any relevant information with a 360-degree view around a topic. The search engine improves the speed and accuracy to answer customer queries.
