Jun 23, 2006

Teragram, a provider of multilingual natural language processing technologies, has announced the launch of Direct Answers for the Enterprise, a technology that searches documents within corporations to break down users' queries and find answers to their questions. Direct Answers for the Enterprise scans structured databases like Excel spreadsheets and sales lead databases, as well as semi- and unstructured documents like text-based reports and web pages, to provide answers derived from multiple sources of information.

Teragram's Direct Answers integrates with existing search software and does not require hardware installation. Features of Direct Answers, includes: Intelligent multi-lingual query processing, which parses user questions into search terms; Federation, which aggregates search results from multiple sources controlled by the enterprise (including other search engines) for comprehensive answers; Scalability, which can accommodate unlimited amounts of information, dependent on server capacity; and Speed, which scans up to 50 queries per second.
