List of enterprise search software applications

Martin White, SearchResearch Online, 1 January 2023

This table lists 87 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 for a project. It was last updated in January 2023 and will be reviewed in June 2023

If you know of a company that you feel should be included please use the Comments form on the Home Page. A decision on inclusion will made by SearchResearch.

The ‘Europe’ column indicates if, based on the vendor web site, the vendor has an office location in Europe. There are 30 vendors with an HQ in Europe and a further 28 US companies with representation in Europe.

No warranty, explicit or implied, is given 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. It is also important to understand the level of installation, implementation and development resources the vendor is able to offer in your major office locations.
