TietoEnator spreads Olympic Games information to the Australian press TietoEnator has delivered additional licences for TRIP, the archive and search system, to Australia's largest newspaper Group, John Fairfax, in order to satisfy the increasing demands from the press for information during the Olympic Games. The strengthening of resources prior to and during the Olympic Games concerns an Extranet with up to 15,000 users. In order to satisfy the increased needs for the quick storage, searching and finding of information and pictures during the Olympic Games in Sidney, John Fairfax has increased its TRIP licences by up to 15,000 users. In addition to users within the Group's newspapers, the archive is used in an Extranet where newspapers such as The West Australian, The Canberra Times, The Launceston Examiner, Australian Provincial Newspapers, The Albury Border Mail, The Wagga Advertiser and USA Today are connected. All pictures and all texts are searchable with TRIP's own free-text search system. TRIP and John Fairfax John Fairfax Holding is Australia's largest newspaper Group and has, during the whole of the 90's, stored all of its gigantic text and picture archive in the Information archive TRIP. Confidence in TRIP is great and the basic technique in TRIP has been maintained through the years and been integrated with new systems. "The advantages that Fairfax sees with TRIP are the rapid reply times independent of the growing quantity of information and the possibilities of stating very complex criteria for the searching", says Helen Hasselberg Nilsson, Business Manager of TRIP. TRIP is used by many large newspapers both in Sweden and the rest of Europe, such as Aftenposten in Norway, Helsingin Sanomat and Aamulehti in Finland, Aftonbladet and Göteborgsposten in Sweden as well as Frankfurter Allgemaine Zeitung in Germany. Where applications for the newspaper branch are concerned, TietoEnator Technology has an alliance with Arrowhead Business Solutions.
