This table lists around 30 enterprise search software vendors. It is certainly not a complete list but hopefully will be a starting point in the development of a list of potential vendors.  

No warranty, explicit or implied, is given by Intranet Focus Ltd as to the quality of the products listed. Search software should always be selected on the basis of a detailed profile of user requirements, not just a list of functional requirements. We will be pleased to support the process and help our clients come to the best decision taking into account a wide range of factors.

If there is any company that feels that they should be on the list please contact us. However the final decision on which vendors are included will be made by Intranet Focus Ltd.
