The Forrester Wave is a guide for buyers considering their purchasing options in a technology marketplace. For "The Forrester Wave™: Cognitive Search, Q3 2021" the research firm evaluated 13 cognitive search vendors based on the categories of current offering, strategy and market presence. Forrester defines Cognitive Search as “next-generation search engine software that employs AI technologies such as machine learning (ML) to ingest, understand, and organize information from multiple disparate data sources to enable humans to find content, answers, insights and/or explore a large corpus of information”.
"Modern AI techniques turn enterprise search solutions into thinking systems, capable of understanding the intent behind a search. Solutions like iFinder thus not only enable more relevant search results but can support numerous additional use cases. These range from chatbots to automated inbox classification and automated checking of submitted applications for plausibility, completeness and correctness to the analysis of GDPR-relevant content in a company," says Franz Kögl, CEO of IntraFind. "We are very pleased that Forrester recognizes us as a 'Strong Performer' in this evaluation."
