FAST Partners With SISIS to Enhance Search Functionality of Leading Library Management Solutions

    Oslo, Norway (ots/PRNewswire) -

    - FAST InStream(TM) OEM Enterprise Search Solution to Power Search and Retrieval Functions of Library Management Solutions

    Fast Search & Transfer(TM) (FAST(TM)), the leading developer of enterprise search and real-time alerting technologies, and Sisis Informationsysteme GmbH, a well-known and respected provider of library management and information portal solutions, today announced an OEM partnership to enhance the search capabilities of three SISIS products. Under the agreement, SISIS will develop search options for its products using FAST InStream(TM), an OEM-specific enterprise search solution developed specifically to meet the complex application-based search requirements of independent software vendors (ISVs).

    Sisis library management solutions are designed to simplify common/typical library business processes, from publication acquisition and cataloguing, to external data processing and circulation. Sisis solutions are currently used by hundreds of scientific and public libraries, as well as special subject libraries, across Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands. Sisis will incorporate FAST's enterprise search solution into SISIS-SunRise Catalogue, Library Link Collector and Library Content Search Suite.

    - SISIS-SunRise Catalogue and SISIS-SunRise webOPAC (Online Public Access Catalogue): With the integration of FAST InStream, libraries that make content available through the SISIS-SunRise Catalogue and SISIS-SunRise webOPAC will now be able to provide users with faster access to the information stored within, as well as more accurate search results.

    - Library Link Collector: Online public access catalogues include meta-data and links to online versions of books and other artefacts. FAST InStream will now power the Library Link Collector as it crawls these links and will enable users to search the linked documents.

    - Library Content Search Suite for SISIS-SunRise and SISIS-Elektra: Sisis will integrate FAST InStream to assist in gathering documents from additional collections within a library and making them searchable. SISIS-Elektra software enables libraries to build and maintain information portals.

    "Sisis library solutions are among the best in managing and simplifying a library's administrative processes and service-oriented tasks. Libraries have grown to depend on our solutions to streamline day-to-day operations," said Norbert Weinberger, CEO of Sisis. "Integrating FAST InStream will enable us to provide library staff an easy, efficient way to manage their resources and access relevant content when they need it."

    "As information brokers and suppliers in today's modern environment, libraries need to adopt new services and technologies in order to meet consumers' increasing expectations for information access," said Ali I. Riaz, FAST's chief operating officer. "FAST InStream will provide Sisis customers with a new level of search functionality, enabling library staff and users to quickly and easily access the multitude of resources these libraries contain."

    FAST InStream, FAST's enterprise search solution specifically designed for embedded delivery, is designed to increase the value of enterprise applications and boost ROI for the partner's customers by leveraging the power of FAST Enterprise Search Platform (FAST ESP(TM)) technology. Supporting both structured and unstructured data, FAST InStream provides unique value across all types of software applications, and will be an asset for Sisis customers seeking highly-relevant data fast.
