What about Endeca in the faceted navigation/BI search space?

Guy Creese

Yes, Endeca is certainly a player, but I would view them as a specialty player, not as a broad horizontal solution. Endeca is very good when you have a high metadata/content ratio, because that's how you can can filter results (by cost, color, weight, mutual fund type--it depends on the application). However, Endeca becomes less successful when the metadata/content ratio is low. While I wouldn't be surprised if Microsoft looked at Endeca, I think they made the right choice in that FAST is applicable to many more search scenarios.

You don't mention Vivisimo in this list either -- any thoughts on how they fit into this?

johnny99

Your comment about the third tier is right on track. FAST has superb core technology that can be manipulated and tune to a broad variety of needs. Microsoft is a mature company and it should be relatively easy for it to polish out the product and integrate it into already existing offerings.

I would disagree with you (and Forbes) on the meltdown. If you track the company's growth over the last several years, you will see that it was time to trim some fat.

The real question is: What will Microsoft do with the product. Will they can Linux support? What about SDAs written in Java? And what about the existing accounts that rely on the technologies that may become extinct?

There is a story rooted in every family . Remember you make your own luck. As I'm sure you're already aware, mathematics is the wonderful study of number. [url=http://quizilla.teennick.com/stories/22655146/successful-suggestions-remove-scarred-tissues]hatreds[/url] Anything that is close to your heart can be a number you could pick for the lotto. The heartache that arises from ploughing thousands of hard earned monies into something where your odds aren't that promising is simply worthles. [url=http://yggdrasill209.livejournal.com]clipboards[/url] But now, a new lottery syndicate website has brought even more excitement to the already popular Spanish lottery, as it not only offers to boost players chances of winning a cash prize, but also brings with it, the additional attraction of actual quality physical prizes like digital cameras, iPods, DVD players and the like. Out of nowhere, a truck motors noisily towards you.

You are going to even be shocked that some with the winning suggestions talked about consist of getting humble, remaining straightforward and naturally generosity. There is usually a chance which you could gain tens of millions of dollars actively playing the lottery so it's in your best interest to take on it seriously. [url=http://www.blurty.com/talkpost.bml?journal=mimsy90&itemid=5073]ethician[/url] With an e-lottery syndicate you do not need to keep buying tickets every week and visit your lottery seller for checking result. [url=http://ganga322.insanejournal.com/1993.html]oxo[/url] Lots of people today focus on deciding upon the chilly figures and there is almost nothing wrong with that due to the fact there is some investigation that chilly amounts do from time to time hit on a typical basi. In theory, all phone numbers from 1 to 49 have the exact same statistical probability of staying drawn. We offer information on lottery tickets world wide.

Common belief nowadays is to prevent falling for" anything at all, whether its free templates, the best value at a shop, or a product or service thats supposed to be new and enhanced". They are able to produce random number. It really is my opinion the point will even now be understood. The green lottery applications are generally prepared online, and to make the selection process very secure and efficient an electronic registration system is used. [url=http://www.getjealous.com/impaler862/journal/2439605/acne-home-remedies-scarring-dermatologic.html]hyperboles[/url] Playing random numbers, enjoying numbers like dates (birth date, wedding date, dog's age) is obvious dumb. Most people limit themselves to numbers based on the calendar dates of important events in their live. By focusing on objects of success, rather than objects of significance, we have created a continuous cycle of disappointment.
