Search & Discovery

The one-size-fits-all approach to search isn’t sufficient, causing users to spend hours poring over links to pages that are minimally related to the question they first had. With Anzo Search & Discovery solutions, users ask self-guided questions and are served precise answers gathered from content spread across and beyond the enterprise. Anzo explains the origin of the answer, allowing the user to self-explore for further analysis.


  • Transition seamlessly between search, data exploration and analytics experiences
  • Find precise answers by asking questions with natural language, leaving out the guesswork for perfect keywords to get relevant search results tailored to your business

  • Discover deep insights from content analytics and algorithms

Unstructured Text Integration

Critical information in any given organization is often buried in free-form text from documents and email to web pages and data feeds. This information evades the proper monitoring to sit within standard databases. Anzo connects data trapped within unstructured documents with data anywhere else in the enterprise, letting you treat it as accurately as data from traditional structured enterprise data sources.



  • Access all information in one place—regardless of format, structure, or location
  • Enrich your understanding of key business entities by integrating data from text processing pipelines
  • Process unstructured content to curate and integrate with structured data, text analytics or for application use
  • Create custom, but not required, scripts and rules to find and link data from unstructured sources
