    - Knowledge Management Authority Recognises FAST ESP for Innovation and Superior ROI

    Fast Search & Transfer(TM) (FAST(TM)), the leading developer of enterprise search and real-time alerting technologies, today announced that its Enterprise Search Platform (FAST ESP(TM)), was selected by KMWorld magazine as a "2005 Trend-Setter." Officially unveiled in the September 2005 issue, KMWorld's 2005 Trend-Setters were chosen based on their ability to bring a unique value to an organisation, its workers and various constituencies.

    "After evaluating more than 200 vendors and 1,200 offerings, this year's KMWorld Trend-Setter Products were selected based on their usability, flexibility, adoption rate and total cost of ownership, as well as the vendor's vision for the future of knowledge management," said Hugh McKellar, editor-in-chief, KMWorld. "We selected FAST ESP for this year's list because it is an enterprise search platform that gives organisations a single point of access to all of their enterprise information. FAST also has the ability to create new search derivative applications (SDAs) based on the needs of vertical markets such as government and financial services, providing them with nearly unlimited growth potential."

Riaz, FAST's chief operating officer. "FAST's growing success is based on the company's superior enterprise search solution and the company will continue to grow stronger through innovation, reaching new vertical markets with targeted SDAs."
