Influential Market Analysis Report Recognizes BA Insight for the Second Year In a Row 

Boston, MA – August 24, 2015 – BA Insight announced today that it has been recognized for the second year in a row by Gartner, Inc. as a “Visionary” in the recently released “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Search”. This report is one of the most influential market analyses for organizations seeking to evaluate Enterprise Search 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 pleased to have been positioned in the “Visionaries” quadrant for the second year in a row.   This is a direct reflection of our commitment to building software that transforms cloud based and on-premise SharePoint intranets and portals into powerful, Internet-like applications that significantly improve the way organizations find and work with content”, said Massood Zarrabian, CEO of BA Insight. “This enables organizations to boost productivity, reduce costs and increase business insight. We remain committed to providing innovative technologies that help our customers increase the value of their intranets, increase innovation, improve productivity, grow revenue and reduce costs.”

Our Software Portfolio extends SharePoint Out-of-the-Box and provides internet-like search experience through:

  • Applications – Smart Previews, Visual Refiners, User-Generated InfoSites, and Matter Comparison help users find relevant information faster for improved productivity.
  • Classification – Auto-tagging, metadata generation, and text analytics make content findable.
  • Connectivity – Secure connectors and federation to a wide variety of content systems enable unified views of all knowledge assets.
