Lucid Imagination, an open-source enterprise search company, is looking to compete with established players like Autonomy, Microsoft’s Fast, and Endeca, but the target is already shifting.
Paula Rooney highlights Lucid CEO Eric Gries’ open-source enterprise search plan: be the Red Hat of enterprise search.
But let’s fast forward a bit. Like Red Hat, Lucid will start in one area and need to expand into new adjacent markets.
