Zurich – May 29, 2019 – Augmented intelligence solutions provider Squirro today announced that it has been included in The Forrester Wave™: Cognitive Search, Q2 2019, published on May 29, 2019.
Squirro is named a ‘strong performer’ in the report that evaluates the top vendors in the Cognitive Search market against 24 criteria, which were grouped into three high-level categories: current offering, strategy and market presence.
Forrester is one of the most influential independent research and advisory firms and the report states how as legacy enterprise search technology becomes outdated and less effective, use of AI technologies such as natural language understanding will dictate which providers will lead the pack.
The report notes that; “Squirro makes SaaS applications more clever, immediately. Squirro’s strategy is to use its core cognitive search solution for multiple prebuilt use cases spanning customer insights, service insights, and risk insights, and it is also available as an embedded Salesforce search service. Additionally, the company offers industry-specific cognitive search solutions for banking, finance, insurance, and manufacturing.”
Dorian Selz, CEO and Co-founder of Squirro, said; “Traditional enterprise search is no longer fit for purpose and to be named as a ‘strong performer’ in a report outlining the top Cognitive Search vendors is hugely gratifying. We have worked hard to deliver such a compelling Cognitive Search solution and believe that in the not too distant future virtually every organization will deploy Cognitive Search technology. By delivering our core solution in the form of prebuilt use cases we are in a prime position to expand our user base and reach over the next 12 – 24 months.”
A Forrester Wave is a guide for buyers considering their purchasing options in a technology marketplace. To offer an equitable process for all participants, Forrester follows The Forrester Wave™ Methodology Guide to evaluate participating vendors.
