Microsoft Searches for Search Answers

Microsoft has more or less conceded Internet search to Google; there's no force powerful enough -- not Yahoo and not MSN Live Search -- that can topple the Google. But enterprise search is another matter, and here Microsoft may at least have a shot, if not an edge.

That's exactly why Redmond bought FAST, a Norwegian search company. It seems that Microsoft will tie the FAST search engine to key server apps, such as SharePoint. This is an open system allowing SharePoint developers to include custom search in their apps.
