Basis Technology Partners with Elasticsearch

Brings Powerful Multilingual Text Analytics to Open Source Search

Cambridge, MA, September 25, 2013—Basis Technology, the global leader in multilingual search and text analytics, is partnering with Elasticsearch by releasing a new plugin for Rosette®, the premier linguistics platform which delivers faster and more accurate search results across many languages. Rosette provides the most advanced capabilities commercially available, whether for searching within a language or across multiple languages.

With hundreds of thousands of downloads every month, Elasticsearch is rapidly becoming one of the world’s most popular open source search and analytics engines. By providing production and development support with worldwide training, Elasticsearch is making real-time data exploration available to anyone. Rosette is a perfect complement to Elasticsearch, enabling powerful multilingual capabilities in just hours, rather than weeks or months.

“Basis Technology is an industry leading specialist in text analytics software, and therefore very well positioned to partner with Elasticsearch,” said Steven Schuurman, CEO of Elasticsearch. “Companies and organizations worldwide will benefit from our work together.”

“Global data production is exploding, and the need to retrieve and analyze both structured and unstructured multilingual data is greater than ever before,” said Carl Hoffman, CEO of Basis Technology. “Rosette’s industry leading natural language processing coupled with Elasticsearch’s advanced search and analytics engine ensures outstanding performance to users of open source search around the world.”

Elasticsearch is a sponsor for Basis Technology’s upcoming Open Source Search (OSS) Conference on November 6th, part of the annual Basis Tech Week conference series.
