Exalead and Basis Technology Partnership Extends Capabilities of Exalead Information Access Platform to Asian and Middle Eastern Languages

Advanced Linguistic Analysis for Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Other Languages Improves Search Accuracy for Exalead CloudView EL (Extended Language) Customers

CAMBRIDGE, MA and PARIS--(Marketwire - Apr 14, 2011) - Exalead, a subsidiary of Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065) (PARIS: DSY), and Basis Technology today announced a partnership that integrates Basis Technology's Rosette® linguistics platform into the newly released Exalead CloudView EL (Extended Language). By licensing the Rosette technology -- for languages including linguistically complex Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Arabic, Persian, and Urdu -- CloudView EL will offer enhanced search capabilities and greater accuracy to corporate users in Asia and the Middle East.

CloudView EL is a unique information access platform that collects unstructured and structured data from any source and transforms it into a single, structured information resource for unified searches or for building next-generation search-based business applications.

CloudView EL draws on Rosette to apply language-specific text analysis to yield highly accurate and comprehensive search results. Rosette also performs morphological analysis of text and named entity extraction (people, places and organizations) in Asian and Middle Eastern languages, an essential step to achieve superior search recall and quality.

"We partnered with Basis Technology to extend our commitment to search excellence into Asia and the Middle East," said Laurent Couillard, CEO of Exalead. "Rosette's speed and textual analysis in a multitude of languages is a key piece in enabling our worldwide customers to unlock the hidden value of data across all sources and languages."

"Accurate search is tightly linked with high-quality, language-specific text analysis," Steve Cohen, COO of Basis Technology, said. "We are pleased that Exalead -- one of the world's most innovative search platforms -- has chosen our linguistic technology to enhance their edge in the competitive search market."
