Marketing and Web, U Hospitals and Clinics
 

Presenter: Barb Iannucci, UIT University Support Services

The University currently uses the Google Search Appliance (GSA) for enterprise website search. The GSA returns results when website visitors type search queries into the search box in the upper right corner of the University’s main utah.edu site and the vast majority of campus websites.

Google has, unfortunately, decided to discontinue this product without having a replacement solution in place. As a result, the University is embarking on a venture to find a new enterprise website search solution. Barb presented a brief history of web search solutions at the U, an overview of GSA including top features, and shared a survey link, http://bit.ly/GSA-survey, which will help her content and usability group in USS gather feedback.
