Expert System Included in 2009 Information Access Technology Magic Quadrant

Vendors Evaluated Based on Range of Capabilities, Complete Vision and Ability to Execute

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - September 14, 2009) - Expert System, leading provider of semantic software that searches, discovers, classifies and interprets unstructured text information, today announces its inclusion in the 2009 Information Access Technology Magic Quadrant, issued by Gartner, Inc.

According to Gartner Analyst Whit Andrews, author of the 2009 Information Access Technology Magic Quadrant, "Information access technologies find, collect and condense information or map its native location, so users may actively seek information, analyze it effectively and remain informed. Enterprise search, in which users' queries are matched against an index to return relevant documents and data, is an element of information access."

In 2008, Gartner reported software revenue (new licenses and maintenance revenue) in the enterprise search market totalled $1.1 billion worldwide. The firm forecasts this will rise to $1.9 billion by 2013, with a compound annual growth rate of 11.7 percent.

"As the enterprise search market continues to grow, the need for semantic search and analysis becomes more evident," said J. Brooke Aker, CEO, Expert System USA. We believe Expert System's inclusion in the 2009 Information Access Technology Magic Quadrant tells us that enterprises need a lot of help sorting through and making sense of abundant data. Our customized semantic technology can locate, sort and analyze information across any industry or government sector."
