Canwest was interested in improving the search experience to its subscribers of newswire services. Newswire feeds from over 3800 sources around the world are indexed by FAST ESP in near real time basis.
The FAST entity extraction and content categorization capability on massive volumes of content was leveraged to achieve the desired improvement in search experience and customer satisfaction.
Improvement of the search response time performance was among the key metrics used to measure success of this project.
