微软计划利用此次对 FAST 的收购,并通过其 Sharepoint 服务器产品来增强企业搜索,而且该挪威公司的多种产品也会对 Live Search 有帮助。根据微软的官方新闻:

The companies possess a number of complementary strengths that advance a shared vision for helping businesses deliver information worker productivity and improved business results. FAST has a deep talent pool and is respected throughout the technology industry for its expertise in best-in-class, high-end search solutions. Microsoft offers worldwide customer reach and an extensive partner network, and is the recognized leader in business productivity with the popular Microsoft Office SharePoint Server, which combines search with best-in-class collaboration, business intelligence, portal and content management capabilities.

“This acquisition gives FAST an exciting way to spread our cutting-edge search technologies and innovations to more and more organizations across the world,” said John Lervik, CEO of FAST. “By joining Microsoft, we can benefit from the momentum behind the SharePoint business productivity platform to really empower a broader set of users through Microsoft’s strong sales and marketing network. It validates FAST’s momentum and leadership in enterprise search.”

微软商业部门总裁杰夫-雷克斯(Jeff Raikes)指出,”现在许多机构都不得不在两个方案间做出选择,要么选择强大的、高端搜索技术,要么选择主流的基础设施解决方案。微软和Fast的结合则为客户提供了一个全新的方案:即由一家销售商提供满足客户权方位需求的所有解决方案。”

Fast首席执行官约翰-列维克(John Lervik)指出,微软的销售和市场平台将帮助Fast以更快速度发展。”通过并购我们可以将自己的尖端搜索技术和革新方案传递给全球愈来愈多的机构”。(via:Sina
