New solution provides mobile access to enterprise information leveraging the
Google Search Appliance and BearingPoint's strategic information management
and system integration capabilities
ROSEMONT, Ill., July 25 / Today, Motorola, Inc.
(NYSE: MOT) announced the addition of contextual search capabilities to its
MOTOPRO(TM) Mobility Suite to enable secure, mobile access to enterprise
information. Contextual search can make results more relevant by automatically
refining them based on metadata related to things such as user location and
current tasks being performed.
Motorola's recently launched MOTOPRO(TM) Mobility Suite provides a
platform for rapid mobile application design and deployment, coupled with
enterprise-class device security and management. Adding contextual search
capabilities to the platform will allow enterprises to make structured data
sources such as ERP and CRM databases, as well as unstructured data such as
email and word processor documents available for easy mobile access and
"The world's increasingly mobile workforces require secure, seamless
access to enterprise information to be effective outside the office," said
John DeFeo, corporate vice president, Motorola Enterprise Products.
"Contextual search extensions enable efficient and intelligent mobile search
capabilities, helping to improve the accuracy and relevance of search results.
By adding this functionality to the Mobility Suite, enterprise mobile workers
will now have immediate access to all the information available about their
customers, products and partners from virtually any point on the globe."
Motorola will leverage Google's "OneBox for Enterprise" feature of the
Google Search Appliance to maximize usability of the solution on the Motorola
Q Smartphone, HC700 rugged handheld series and other enterprise devices.
"Information access isn't just an issue when you're at your desk," said
Dave Girouard, vice president and general manager, Google Enterprise. "Google
is working to make all corporate information accessible through a fast and
familiar search interface, and we are pleased to work with Motorola to bring
that capability to the mobile world."
BearingPoint intends to work with Motorola to identify innovative ways to
leverage the Mobility Suite to deliver business context, location and user
preference requirements to increase relevance and accuracy of search results.
BearingPoint also plans to provide business systems integration and management
consulting capabilities that enhance the enterprise search solution by helping
connect various sources of enterprise data and manage access control profiles.
"We look forward to extending the capabilities of Motorola's Mobility
Suite to support mobile search applications that enable businesses to be more
agile, responsive and smart," said Michael D. Lyman, BearingPoint executive
vice president and chief strategy officer. "In contributing our industry
knowledge, management consulting expertise and depth of experience in
applications development and integration services, our cooperation with
Motorola will help offer enterprise search and information management
solutions that deliver tangible results."
The Motorola MOTOPRO Mobility Suite contextual search extension will be
available in Q4 2006. For more information on the Mobility Suite and
