Main contribution at ITovation 3: FAST, A Microsoft® Subsidiary
We are scratching the surface of a large transformation where search is emerging as the key technology to drive user experiences and disruptive business models. Search is changing the way people interact with information, people, and applications. This is happening both online and inside corporate portals, as well as in-the-cloud computing. After being acquired by Microsoft this spring, FAST now heads Microsoft’s search strategy and the new product line Enterprise Search. Headquartered in Oslo and led by FASTs founder, John M. Lervik, Microsoft Enterprise Search Group has ca 900 employees with around one third of them working out of Norway. The new global Microsoft group is the result of the merger of FAST and Microsoft’s enterprise search team.

Noen ord om selskapet bak hovedpresentasjonen på ITovation 3.

FAST skaper søketeknologien som er bak teppet hos de best kjente selskapene i verden med de mest krevende søkebehov.

FAST så dagens lys i 1997, og vokste raskt til å bli det største norske programvareselskapet notert på Oslo Børs. Våren 2008 kjøpte Microsoft FAST for syv milliarder kroner. Microsofts søketeknologigruppe er nå innlemmet i FAST og inngår i den nye Microsoft-enheten Enterprise Search Group.

Microsofts satsning på søketeknologi ledes ut fra Norge av FASTs grunnlegger John M. Lervik. Enterprise Search Group har ansvaret både for Microsofts overordnede strategi innenfor søketeknologi og den nye produktlinjen Enterprise Search. Informasjon i pressen. Innslag i Dagsrevyen.

From a software development perspective, search provides both deep and broad challenges across usability, interaction models, mathematical relevance models, algorithmic beauty, distributed computing, and large-scale professional software engineering.

John M. Lervik will discuss this transformation in the light of FAST’s history and our future as a Microsoft subsidiary. We will also demonstrate implementation of future search technology.
