Autonomy Enterprise Search Practice

Including legacy support for Verity K2, Ultraseek and Search97

Autonomy continues its industry lead in high end search and compliance technology, in part through acquisitions of several other companies. Current and legacy product lines include:

  • Autonomy IDOL
  • Ultraseek (previously owned by Verity, Inktomi and Infoseek)
  • Verity K2, VDK and Search97
  • Aungate
  • KeyView (document filters, via Verity)
  • Zantaz

Client Challenges Many businesses found themselves Autonomy's customers via M&A, and likely own other engines as well. Key questions include:

  • Which products will Autonomy continue to officially support, and for how long?
  • Which products will Autonomy continue to actively enhance?
  • Should Ultraseek and Verity customers upgrade to the IDOL engine, or consider offerings from other vendors as well?
  • How will Autonomy's pricing and professional services policies compare to what they are used to?
  • What are the logistics involved in moving to a new search platform?
