Google is a visionary and a cloud-first organization. In an announcement today, Google has decided to sunset the hardware-based Google Search Appliance (GSA) and focus their engineering efforts on cloud-based solutions. The GSA will remain supported for the next three years, giving you plenty of time to evaluate the future of your enterprise search investment and continue to deliver value to your business.

We have over 60 collective years of enterprise search experience, over 250 enterprise search engagements, and a wide variety of technology partnerships. Perficient is your trusted partner. With this change, comes opportunity — it’s a great time to look at technologies that can enhance your search solution like analytics, big data, and natural language processing.
