Over 291,977 professionals have used IT Central Station research.
Compare the best Indexing and Search vendors based on product reviews, ratings, and comparisons.
All reviews and ratings are from real users, validated by our triple authentication process.
The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score.
The score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score.
(20 points for Reviews; 16 points for Views, Comparisons, and Followers.)
Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in
that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product
with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 20% (weighting factor) *
80% = 16. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 32 points awarded linearly based on our
rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution
for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews;
two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old,
as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.

What is Indexing and Search?
Indexing and search tools require several key features in order to be considered a quality option for purchase. The IT Central Station community discussed some the aspects that they considered most important: the speed and frequency of indexing rated high on the list, as did customization of the tool's features (specifically overhead customization). Additionally the breadth and depth of indexing that it is capable of doing will tell a lot about an indexing/search tool. Other features mentioned include good tech support, rollout ease, scalability in all directions, and accurate search results that can be drilled down. A few members even suggested that email search, clean user interface, virtual machines operability, and file copying were factors to consider as well.
