Endeca Positioned in the Leaders Quadrant of the 2009 Magic Quadrant for Information Access Technology

Endeca Technologies, Inc., a search applications company, announced today that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of the 2009 Information Access Technology Magic Quadrant report1. 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 strong, innovative and broad 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 large volumes of diverse and changing data. Launched in March of this year, the McKinley release of the Endeca Information Access Platform replaces traditional search engines that make building search applications too costly or difficult, and it complements traditional enterprise applications by letting users search, sort, filter, and analyze large volumes of diverse and changing data from across the enterprise. McKinley also boasts a re-engineered engine that capitalizes on multi-core processors from chipmakers such as Intel to deliver faster performance on greater volumes of data on fewer servers.

“Endeca’s investment in R&D in the past year has led to the launch of our new platform, as well as several search applications built on top of the rearchitected engine,” said Jason Purcell, senior vice president of marketing and product management, Endeca. “In my opinion, our position in the Leaders Quadrant can be credited to our over 600 customers who need to solve specific high-ROI business problems with lower cost of ownership and faster time-to-results, as well as our partners who complement our efforts with technology and delivery services that result in some of the worlds most innovative installations.”
