Leading energy companies, such as Conoco-Phillips, have turned to the Google Search Appliance to provide instant, secure access to all enterprise information. The Google Search Appliance is an integrated hardware and software product that uses Google's powerful search engine technology to bring universal search to your business.
How you'll benefit
Conoco-Phillips - A leader in oil exploration, Conoco-Phillips uses the GSA cluster to search through the company's distributed content worldwide. Conoco-Phillips has diverse content sources, from geo-scientific studies to seismic reports to HR policies. The company uses the appliance's 'Collections' feature to segment content by geography, job function and organization. Since they deployed the appliance, search volume has increased significantly, and complaints about search quality have been reduced considerably.
Cummins - Cummins Inc., a global power leader, engages in the design, manufacturing, distribution and servicing of diesel and natural gas engines, electric power generation systems and engine-related products. For both internal and external search, they had a homegrown search solution, but were looking for a more robust offering with integrated security. After evaluating many competitive products, they chose the Google Search Appliance.
Schlumberger - A leading oil and gas company, Schlumberger has 55,000 global employees communicating in multiple languages. Many employees are in remote areas, with access only via modem. They were looking for a search solution to aggregate disparate oil field content, and serve the results on a low-bandwidth connection. To meet these specific needs, Google was the natural choice. They currently have 7 Google Search Appliances.
Exelon - A worldwide energy leader, Exelon uses the Google Search Appliance for both internal and website search. Their public website is hosted at a 3rd party provider, while their internal search integrates all content from their SharePoint implementation. Other GSA features that they've enabled include Database integration, Results Customization, Basic/NTLM security and MetaTag Filtering.
