Note: This tool uses open web data (be careful) and AI to build profiles about people. Although Eliyon still has a ways to go, I've seen a great deal of improvement over the past few months. Some of their services are free, while others are fee-based.
+ EasyAsk
+ Dotomi
Endeca, Fast, Northern Light, and iPhrase are also briefly mentioned.

"Some of the things that Google does so well, like page rankings, are irrelevant in the enterprise," said Sue Feldman, vice president and search analyst at International Data Corp., a research firm in Framingham.
