Expanding and extending a previous relationship, Fast Search & Transfer (FAST), a search engine technology specialist, has signed a five-year contract with Elsevier, an online and off-line publisher of scientific, technical and medical journals.
Under terms of the pact, FAST's Data Search, a scalable real-time search platform for enterprise as well as Web search, will be used in a range of Elsevier properties.
FAST, which is based in Oslo, Norway and has U.S. operations in Massachusetts, will also provide full-time technical assistance and customization work for Elsevier.
"FAST Data Search was the only enterprise search solution that could provide us with a highly scalable solution for retrieving the most relevant and up-to-date information from our vast collection of scientific data," said Tony Coorey, Elsevier's CIO.
Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.
