Siebel Systems and Fast Search & Transfer have formed a multiyear partnership, whereby FAST InStream will be integrated within the core Siebel business applications platform. The agreement also provides Siebel Systems with the ability to leverage FAST InStream internally. Siebel Systems plans to incorporate FAST search technology into its internal Siebel deployment later this year.

The companies say the integration of FAST InStream with Siebel business applications will add significant new functionality for Siebel customers, allowing them extend their use of Siebel solutions by integrating existing customer and sales information with information from a range of repositories including databases, Web and intranet pages, and third-party internal file systems.
