Mergers & Acquisitions Map - Who bought who

Like many dynamic industries, enterprise search vendors and companies with related technologies have grown not only by sales but also by acquisition and merger. There was a brief period early in the decade when activity was low; but it's since picked up with an average of one major deal a year since mid-decade.

On this page we'll see if we can keep you current on who is acquiring and who was acquired. If we missed any you know of, let us know!
