I’ve written (and read quite a bit) about Interwoven Universal Search before, but the more I see, the more I like. I was impressed with Interwoven’s DeskSite and FileSite products (it looks like they are collectively calling the product WorkSite now?), when I deployed them at my former firm. I like the matter-centric environment. But from what I can see, the killer feature is the collaboration with Vivisimo. To see what it’s all about, check out this self-running demo. It’s really well done.
Not to be out done, however, Google Enterprise recently launched universal search for business, and will be putting on a show to demonstrate its Interwoven connector. There are several shows, but there is one specially for law firms. I’m looking forward to learning more about this – the demo is on March 12. Register here.
In fact, Google is doing some very interesting things that might be of value to law firms, like the related web results feature. I also like the the left (or right) hand search navigation, which is part of Google Experimental Labs project. Check out a sample search here, and see how the results areclustered on the left (sort of like Vivisimo’s). The “suggest” feature is not really new–it’s built into the Google search on my Firefox browser–but I like it too. Try it out here (start typing in a search term).
