III. Vendor Profiles

Many of the vendors selected for inclusion in this study are not widely known to search and information system professionals. Each vendor represents a significant approach to "findability" and information access that moves beyond the tyranny of the search box. Familiarizing yourself with these vendors allows you to compare and contrast functionalities in a more discriminating way. Companies with "beyond search" technologies developed outside the United States are in italics. Some of these companies will fill the void in the market created by the withdrawal of Convera, the failure of Entopia, and the changing product offerings from many of the well-known, vendors of branded search systems.
