With the deal, the company is betting on the future of high-end enterprise search -- not that ordinary list of links that comes back from a standard Internet search, but rather a custom-tailored, finely tuned and interactive set of results.


It's one area of search that Google has yet to dominate, which is one reason Microsoft sees it as an opportunity.

Microsoft seems to be a bit active these days. They've got something brewing. Ya, while it may be a home brew, who knows, it could be the Killer brew. Watch out Google. ;)

^ Man, is that one of the longer uglier URIs I've seen. And in tech too. Stop it already! :(

MS is already deeply embedded in the enterprise market. It's not much of a stretch to offer this to existing clients. They do have an edge on Google in this area, and this is a market that does pay for its tech solutions.

I guess they're working to move beyond the problems this acquisition has presented MS [webmasterworld.com]. ;)
