Lookeen as an HP IDOL Alternative

HP IDOL (Intelligent Data Operating Layer) is a search solution for enterprises. It allows users to analyze their data in addition to providing search functions. The application’s target user groups are mainly large companies and corporations, since integration and maintenance requires a lot of support from a large IT department. This solution is generally not worth it for smaller businesses. There are a lot of alternative search solutions that produce comparable results.
