How not to make the same mistake twice

We’ve been aware that some FAST customers will be considering migration for a while now – but Autonomy have finally caught up.

However, if you migrate from one closed source solution to another, how can you guarantee that the same sort of events that have led to the current situation won’t happen again? With open source, there’s no vendor lock-in, a wide choice of companies to assist you with development an integration, a wealth of different support options and of course no license fees to pay. Migrating from FAST is a common topic at conferences at the moment – read Jan H√łydahl’s presentation, or see Michael McIntosh’s video. There are even open source document processing pipeline frameworks to replace the popular FAST one, and we’ve been evaluating some alternative language processing frameworks. Scaling isn’t an issue and some cases you could significantly reduce your hardware budget.
