LucidWorks is Rapidly Emerging as the Go-To Vendor in the Enterprise Search Market, Notes Frost & Sullivan

A robust growth strategy coupled with innovative, customer-centric solutions has helped LucidWorks achieve rapid market penetration

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Dec. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the enterprise search market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes LucidWorks with the 2012 Global Frost & Sullivan Entrepreneurial Company of the Year Award for leveraging inherent strengths and displaying tremendous entrepreneurial skills to emerge as a vendor of strong repute in the global enterprise search market.

"The award not only recognizes LucidWorks' strong all-round growth but also its vision in forging a unique path without feeling compelled to follow the established trends in the market," said Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Sashankh Kale. "The company has changed its earlier business model of service and consulting related support to one that is based on selling licensed technology platforms."

LucidWorks' innovative platforms, which combine its vast experience in open source technologies and its grasp over Big Data, enable search, discovery and analysis (SDA) of the entire range of structured, semi-structured and unstructured data at the disposal of enterprises. The company's solutions are based on the open source Apache Lucene project and the Apache Solr search platform. Users can download licensed technology from the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) and garner further value through support services. LucidWorks also ensures that its offerings remain affordable.

"LucidWorks fares considerably better than its competitors through the provision of greater long-term customer value and cost-savings, while the learning curve is also significantly shorter," notes Kale. "Unlike other vendors that pursue expertise in specific end-user verticals, LucidWorks achieves sustained success by being part of the ASF and the open source community, which is seeing exponential growth rate in its acceptance across verticals for all horizontal functions."

Further, LucidWorks continues to improve and expand its product portfolio. For instance, it has smoothly integrated social facets in enterprise search solutions in response to customer demand. The company is also constantly expanding its strategic and implementation partnerships within the market – with vendors such as Intelligent Software Solutions (ISS) and IBM – to strengthen its sphere of influence within the enterprise search space.

While LucidWorks has been traditionally more focused on the North American region, it is likely to experience growing demand for its solutions from the European and Asian markets in the foreseeable future.

"Even as competitors struggle with issues surrounding scalability and visibility, LucidWorks has exhibited great success in terms of penetration and rate of customer acquisition," concludes Kale. "Clients appreciate its higher degree of intuitiveness and capability to meet demands intrinsic to the verticals and business environment they operate in."

In recognition of its entrepreneurial leadership and growing stock as a vendor of relevance and repute in the global enterprise search market, LucidWorks is the worthy recipient of the 2012 Frost & Sullivan Global Entrepreneurial Company of the Year Award. Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated excellence in devising a strong growth strategy and robustly implementing it. The recipient has shown strength in terms of innovation in products and technologies, leadership in customer value as well as speed in response to market needs. In short, the award looks at the emerging market players in the industry and recognizes their best practices that are positioned for future growth excellence.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research in order to identify best practices in the industry.
