Cognos to deploy Nstein's intelligent enterprise search solution

Nstein's text mining technology for unstructured information to benefit global Performance Management solutions leader

MONTREAL, Canada, Oct. 18, 2005 - Nstein Technologies Inc. "Nstein" (TSX-V: EIN), the leading provider of linguistic-based business intelligence (BI) solutions, today announced a deal with Cognos, the world leader in BI and corporate performance management (CPM). As part of the deal, Nstein will integrate its Ntelligent search and discovery solution within Cognos' intranet to measurably improve the relevancy and speed by which Cognos' Knowledge Workers can locate the information they are looking for.

Cognos' extensive product evaluation demonstrated the limitations of keyword-based search technology. In most cases, Cognos found that keyword searches in their knowledge base, which contains millions of documents, resulted in users having to manually comb through hundreds, if not thousands of documents, before finding the right answer. This starkly contrasts with Nstein's Ntelligent search solution that leverages the "aboutness" of content to generate guided navigation. Moreover, topic and product clustering, inherent to Ntelligent search, enables users to intuitively locate the right document while similar document suggestion lists create a much richer and efficient information retrieval process. Real-time indexing of incoming documents also ensures that corporate knowledge is quickly made accessible to all users.

"Like many large enterprises, Cognos' intellectual knowledge base is expanding each day. With growth strongly tied to our ability to reuse that knowledge, we must provide our users with the ability to find information in a timely, consistent and straightforward way. Nstein's Ntelligent search and discovery solution will provide this capability to our employees," stated Don Campbell, Vice President of Product Innovation and Technology at Cognos.

"We're very pleased to strengthen our partnership with Cognos. Tackling unstructured information within the workplace is a key step towards having a more efficient and productive workforce," declared Laurent Proulx, Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at Nstein Technologies.
