Microsoft vs. Google

Posted in Search Engines by Xiggeh on July 14, 2006

According to an article at El Reg, Google have finally awoken the beast with a threat of encroaching on Microsoft’s territory. Kevin Turner, Microsoft COO is quoted as saying:

“Enterprise search is our business, it’s our house and Google is not going to take that business. Those people are not going to be allowed to take food off our plate, because that is what they are intending to do.”

Not allowed? Thems fighting words partner.

But hold on, Microsoft doesn’t own the enterprise search business. In fact they hardly dent the market, there are clear leaders and Microsoft isn’t one of them. Could it be using Google to become a serious contender? Or is it all bluster?
