How CAPE Overcame Obstacles to Implementing Search​ in a Government (DoD)/ Enterprise Environment

-- Procurement. Industry business models can change on a dime, but government procurement is a big ship to turn for​ ​course correction. In recent years, the license + life cycle replacement model changed to a subscription model. ​CAPE ran into an obstacle with Contracting Officers and Specialists neither aware of nor prepared for that change.

-- Access Control. In the days before Federal Data Center Consolidation and the rise of Enterprise Service Providers, it was a straightforward matter to gain access across the network to authenticate users, determine their access rights, and match those up to permissions. As the Enterprise establishes its dominion to meet compliance regulations, the design of network domains can introduce obstacles to accessing resources needed for security trimming and access control.

-- Connecting the Dots with Enterprise. In golf, if your shot is in danger of hitting another group you yell "fore!" Centralization and de-centralization of computing resources have their pros and cons. In a centralized model, enterprise level requirements impact a large user community. Sudden obstacles can jump out unannounced when new policies and patches are pushed out ​(with or ​without fair warning​).
