Enterprise search solutions are classic knowledge management tools, allowing for a unified search across muliple systems / repositories of both structured and unstructured data in an organization. These solutions are powerful because they allow timekeepers to easily find information about a firm's people, matters, documents and more through one interface. Choice of document management system to some extent determines which enterprise search system a firm might use. Decisiv Search had long been considered the major player in legal enterprise search, but after acquisition by Opentext it has lost some market share to  the iManage product, Knowledge Unlocked, which is underpinned by AI technology and offers predictive capabilities. These two are by no means the only options for firms, however. Sinequa is used by a number of large firms, as is the federated search product BA Insight, which can enhance SharePoint's search capabilities and is often the platform of choice for firms that use NetDocuments for document management. Finnish company Ilves offers Search, a powerful solution that also operates in English and is in use across at least two large international firms. More recent developments include targeted neural network and advanced AI searches such as Casetext's AllSearch (now subsumed within CoCounsel), and DeepJudge. Although these are not enterprise search solutions, they provide many potential use cases for firms seeking to identify needles in a haystack in large document sets.
