"Our mission with IHS Goldfire is to help engineering, research & development, and scientific teams realize productivity gains, minimize risk and drive innovation"
IHS Inc. (NYSE: IHS), a leading global source of critical information and insight, today announced it has been recognized as a ‘Niche Player’ in Gartner’s July 16, 2014 Enterprise Search Magic Quadrant. IHS was evaluated on the IHS Goldfire software platform, which integrates federated search and broad access to rich technical content for engineers, scientists and researchers in capital-intensive industries. IHS Goldfire accelerates research and informs decision-making to help organizations increase productivity and out-innovate competition.
Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Search provides an independent qualitative analysis of the enterprise search market, its strategic direction, state of maturity and key technology vendors. IHS Goldfire debuted as a Niche Player. According to Gartner, “The enterprise search market rewards vendors that establish specialties in particular vertical markets or categories of application. These Niche Players may not achieve huge revenues or the highest visibility, but they can nevertheless deliver great value in their areas of focus. Such vendors may remain in their specialties or use them as starting points from which to grow in breadth and strength.”
“Our mission with IHS Goldfire is to help engineering, research & development, and scientific teams realize productivity gains, minimize risk and drive innovation,” said Jason Sonneborn, senior director, product design solutions for IHS. “Customers come to us seeking help in capturing and retrieving knowledge and filling internal information gaps. To that end, we have been steadily adding federated search capabilities across existing enterprise systems, analytics and decision support for patent and market intelligence, and access to must-have external technical content such as patents, standards, ebooks and other reference works. We are happy to be recognized by Gartner for our completeness of vision and ability to execute.”
