BA Insight Named a Visionary in 2014 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Search

BOSTON, Mass. – July 21, 2014– BA Insight, provider of software that transforms SharePoint into a Powerful Unified Information Access Platform, has been positioned in the “Visionaries” quadrant of the July 16, 2014 Gartner “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Search,” recognized as one of the most influential market analyses for organizations seeking to evaluate software.  According to Gartner, “Visionaries address the keen desire of enterprises to pursue consumer-class search experiences with fresh capabilities and flexibility. They understand that chasing the ‘Google experience’ is not sufficient, but that providing search features that allow for better collaboration, application development, and innovative means of finding and working with content is particularly valuable.”

“We are thrilled to be placed in the ‘Visionaries’ quadrant of the July 16, 2014 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Search.  This is a testament to our technology innovations, which enable our customers to provide a consumer-class search experience. We also believe this is a reflection of the highly skilled team at BA Insight, which collectively has hundreds of years of experience implementing search-driven applications that enable a new approach to the unification of information that stops the pattern of enterprise search failures,” said Massood Zarrabian, CEO of BA Insight. 

BA Insight’s Knowledge Integration Platform enables organizations to rapidly deploy powerful, search-driven applications at a fraction of the cost, time, and risk of alternatives. It consists of three software engines that provide a comprehensive set of capabilities:

  • User Experience Engine - drives remarkable user experiences for finding and exploring knowledge or experts via an extensible engine and a library of powerful components
  • Content Classification Engine - increases findability using auto-tagging, metadata generation, and text analytics
  • Content Connectivity Engine - provides secure connectivity to a wide variety of content systems, enabling unified views of all knowledge assets 

The platform is fully flexible and can be implemented as a comprehensive solution, particularly suitable for organizations at the beginning of a unified information access project, or its individual components can be leveraged to augment existing technology.
