Enterprise Search 360: Achieving a Single Search Platform Across the Enterprise
Like many growing companies, National Instruments had accumulated a wide range of data sources over time, both structured and unstructured. There were at least four search platforms to access its array of data sources and different search engines were used for internal and external requests which was hampering customers' search results and sales opportunities. National Instruments saw that a single search solution was needed to gather and integrate different content connectors quickly, reliably and would be easy to support. National Instruments was quickly attracted to the FAST platform's versatility, flexibility, and capability to expand. Inside four months the FAST Enterprise Search Platform solution was fully implemented by National Instruments' team without the assistance and added cost of professional services personnel for the installation.
