ISYS Introduces Next-Generation Search Software
ISYS Search Software (http://www.isys-search.com) announced the availability of ISYS 8, the company's next-generation suite for search, navigation, and discovery that adds a number of new features to the mid-market enterprise search tool. ISYS 8 comprises three core products: 1) ISYS:desktop 8, 2) ISYS:web 8, and 3) ISYS:sdk 8. ISYS:desktop 8 is an enterprise-class desktop search solution. ISYS:web 8 provides search technology for Web sites, intranets, portals, and custom Web applications. ISYS:sdk 8 enables software developers and system integrators to incorporate the power of the ISYS search API into custom applications and solutions, whether for commercial distribution or internal use.
The company said that ISYS 8 goes beyond the standard "search and retrieval" model by including several new features in this release that address key enterprise search requirements, such as:
- Text mining, e-discovery, and expertise location via ISYS Entities
- Power and scalability through content caching, scripting, and federated search support
- Adherence to business rules via tuning and editorial controls such as Best Bets
- Full-featured search analytics capabilities through enhanced ISYS SearchTrends
- Broader content support, including Microsoft SharePoint and Office 2007
The core of the ISYS 8 suite is ISYS Entities, which automatically extracts and displays the "who, what, and where" of a given search, thus enabling users to better understand the context of their results and the connections and associations present between their search terms and the content. The company said that ISYS Entities is even offered in ISYS:desktop, making ISYS:desktop the first desktop search application to offer automatic entity extraction.Source: ISYS Search Software
