A natural language query program from EasyAsk, a division of Progress Software, Bedford, MA (www.easyask.com), that can access any SQL-based database. It was authored by Dr. Larry Harris, founder of EasyAsk, and a long-time expert in database systems and computerized natural language. English Wizard's information retrieval technology is a core component of the EasyAsk Enterprise 10 suite of products that go beyond the desktop or network environment. The software operates extensively in site search queries and in OEM embedded systems. Progress acquired EasyAsk in 2005 and retained its well-known brand.
