Google Case Study: British Petroleum
BP is one of the world's largest companies with operations in more than 100 countries employing over 96,000 staff. With any organisation of British Petroleum (BP)'s size, trying to ensure that information is widely and easily accessible is a momentous task. From varying languages and numerous document formats, through to the differing uses of technical data between departments and brands, the breadth of information available at BP is as diverse as its employee population and customer base. BP chose the Google Search Appliance, a product that supports 'Universal Search' across websites, file systems, enterprise applications and intranets. The appliance indexes and searches over 220 file types, presenting relevant results back to readers with the simplicity and clarity readers expect from Google.
