"I believe that what Google has done for the Internet, technologies like ours will do for the enterprise by helping to consumerize information inside the enterprise," Doscher says. "Eventually, you will be able to have natural-language queries inside the enterprise that touch all the different databases, applications and ERPs that the enterprise runs. This will allow people to get instantaneous, real-time information that's consolidated and contextually relevant around the subject that they're interested in."
