Can This Startup Beat IBM, Microsoft, SAP And Oracle?

OpenSearchServer, a French startup that builds an open source enterprise search product, has raised €200,000 or almost $300,000 from top French angels including Kima Ventures, the world’s most active angel fund, and Vente Privée founder Jacques-Antoine Granjon

Enterprise search is a billion-dollar plus market according to Gartner Group, and it’s itself part of the much bigger trend of “Big Data.” As people and companies generate more and more insane amounts of data, there’s going to be tons of money to be made gathering it, securing it, analysing it, etc. 

OpenSearchServer is interesting because it’s an open source solution, which is potentially disruptive to the big enterprise search providers, who right now are big companies like IBM, Microsoft, Oracle and SAP. 

Not a sexy consumer startup, but nonetheless something important and interesting.
