Microsoft introduce new decision engine at Bing.com
Microsoft Corp. has unveiled Bing, calling it a new Decision Engine and consumer brand, providing customers with a first step in moving beyond search to help make faster, more informed decisions.

Bing is specifically designed to build on the benefits of today’s search engines but begins to move beyond this experience with a new approach to user experience and intuitive tools to help customers make better decisions, focusing initially on four key vertical areas: making a purchase decision, planning a trip, researching a health condition or finding a local business.

Microsoft says the result of this new approach is an important beginning for a new and more powerful kind of search service, called a Decision Engine, designed to empower people to gain insight and knowledge from the Web, moving more quickly to important decisions.

The new service, located at http://www.Bing.com, will begin to roll out over the coming days and will be fully deployed worldwide on Wednesday, 3rd June.

The company explains the explosive growth of online content has continued unabated, and Bing was developed as a tool to help people more easily navigate through the information overload that has come to characterize many of today’s search experiences.

“Today, search engines do a decent job of helping people navigate the Web and find information, but they don’t do a very good job of enabling people to use the information they find,” said Steve Ballmer, Microsoft CEO. “When we set out to build Bing, we grounded ourselves in a deep understanding of how people really want to use the Web. Bing is an important first step forward in our long-term effort to deliver innovations in search that enable people to find information quickly and use the information they’ve found to accomplish tasks and make smart decisions.”
