Searching….

Its been a busy day for news on the Search front:

Microsoft makes and offer for FAST

EMC and Autonomy agreed deal

Okay, for those not quite fully up to speed. Documentum used to have Verity as its embedded search engine, then Autonomy bought Verity and Documentum snuggled up with FAST instead. Documentum OEM edition includes Lucene as its Search Engine and I’ve seen rumours that it will be an option in core Content Server from v6.5. In the meantime Microsoft make a significant play into the Search arena and offer something for free. Google also have applicances which can be plugged into the likes of Documentum.

Today’s news changes quite a few things, not least where will the end of this merry-go-round leave EMC/Documentum and their search capability?
