CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - March 4, 2008) - Gilbane Group Inc. today announced the launch of a new special report, "Beyond Search: What to do When Your Enterprise Search System Doesn't Work", by Stephen Arnold.

According to Lynda Moulton, Gilbane's Lead Analyst for Enterprise Search, "Over the past decade, companies and government agencies that have invested in major search technology have done so at great expense. This study recognizes that there are many large search systems out there that are in need of serious remediation or replacement. Mr. Arnold devotes over 40 pages to remediation options before presenting 24 'beyond search' technologies. These include both mature versions of established search products that have evolved to a stage of easier deployment, implementation and maintenance, and some new entrants that support highly specialized retrieval challenges within organizations. He leaves the reader with a feast for thought about how to meet enterprise search needs head on with both fix and replace options." See Lynda's blog at
