Verity Partners with Yahoo! for Enterprise Web Search
Verity, Inc., a provider of enterprise software, has announced a partnership with Yahoo!, Inc. The first product of this partnership, Verity Enterprise Web Search, is an application available at no cost to Verity's enterprise customers that can, with a single query, simultaneously search information in internal repositories as well as all of the relevant Web content indexed by Yahoo! Search. The product allows enterprise customers to easily and affordably extend the reach of their existing Verity K2 Enterprise- and Verity Ultraseek-powered search applications to the Internet. Verity customers may download the product at http://www.verity.com/dlc.
Highlights of the product include the following:
- Search results from internal content repositories and the Web are merged and ranked for relevance, eliminating the need to submit multiple queries to internal sources and public search engines, then manually assimilating results to put the information into perspective.
- Search results can be examined in multiple views (by relevance, category, or content source) for more effective searching.
- Web-based content can be dynamically classified into existing corporate taxonomies.
- Customers can expand external content access with optional plug-ins to subscription-based information providers.
