Fast Search Speeds Up Enterprise Research

Fast Search is hitting the search market hard with their software, Fast Enterprise Search Platform (ESP), designed to assist enterprise businesses as they try and sift through mountains of information.

Fast ESP works by "transforming a widely diverse collection of internal and external structured and unstructured content into a unified and fully accessible resource unaffected by data format, structure, location or parent application."

ESP searches through "unstructured" data, like emails and PDFs and word documents, as well as structured data, including bank transactions, salary information, images, and customer data.

The results are then crossed referenced with the Internet, local databases and personal files to identify trends and correlations. This gives users "a complete 360 degree view of the enterprise providing a clear understanding of potential revenue increases and TCO decreases."

Technology like this has the other uses as well. John Lervik, CEO of Fast Search & Transfer, in an interview with BBCNews stated, "to our knowledge, this is only being used for 'good purposes' today."

In Japan, ESP is used to assist in the hunt of pedophiles. The software analyzes the patterns of child porn images in an effort to find these images hidden behind misleading file names.

ThomasNet.com recently announced that ESP's engine has been chosen to power the search capabilities of its comprehensive online resource for industry.
