The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: Outdoing Outlook "Trimergent is tackling ways that office workers can search for information, publish findings online and share them with others. Its product combines multiple tiers of search — including Web, desktop and database search — with collaboration and sharing features.
After Outlook, Raman was one of the leaders of Netdocs, a huge e-mail and information-management project championed by Chairman Bill Gates. The Netdocs team grew to hundreds of people before the project was canceled. Parts of Netdocs eventually emerged in Infopath, a separate information-management program.
It was understandable that Raman would want to take a break from Microsoft after the Netdocs debacle, former co-workers said."
