BearingPoint and Google launch enterprise search solutions practice

BearingPoint announced an agreement with Google to offer enterprise search solutions. BearingPoint says it extends Google's search capabilities by offering companies customized search technology tailored for specific business environments in industries such as pharmaceuticals, banking, brokerage, high-tech and aerospace.

"Enterprise users expect the same level of functionality, simplicity and ease-of-use in the enterprise that they experience as consumers on the Internet, says Harry You, CEO, BearingPoint. "This is part of a shift we call consumerization of the enterprise."

The ability for employees to quickly and easily access corporate information accelerates collaboration and problem solving and reduces costs associated with redundant work, BP says in a statement. The new BearingPoint practice area will offer service, technology and expertise to help unlock information stored across enterprises.
