Website offers wealth of information and free evaluation of X1 solutions for secure enterprise desktop search


Pasadena, CA – June 19, 2006 X1 Technologies, Inc. today unveiled a comprehensive industry resource center to help IT professionals evaluate and deploy enterprise desktop search solutions.

"With search quality - or lack thereof - rising toward the top of the priority list for many enterprise IT groups, a major obstacle to successful deployment turns out to be simply a lack of experience and insight about what goes into really great search," said Hadley Reynolds, vice president and Director of Research at Delphi Group. "Positioned at the often complex nexus of desktop and enterprise search, X1 has a clear perspective on the importance of providing knowledge resources to the search team. The new Enterprise Desktop Search Resource Center will help focus knowledge transfer and speed up time-to-value for search improvement projects."
