New Study Benchmarks Desktop Search Tools

by , Comments

The folks over at Pandia have alerted us to a new benchmark study from the University of Wisconsin's E-Business Consortium that looks at 12 desktop search tools.

The 15 page report: Benchmark Study of Desktop Search Tools, is available in full text as a PDF file.

The benchmark criteria that were used for the evaluation included usability, versatility, accuracy, efficiency, security, and enterprise readiness. When all the results were reviewed, it was determined that most of the desktop search tools were still too immature for significant business use due primarily to a lack of mature security and overall manageability.

Overall, Copernic Desktop Search gets the top ranking. At number two is Yahoo Desktop Search. Rounding out the top three is Wizetech Archivarius 3000, from a Canadian-based Wizetech Software.
