Dataware Announces Knowledge Query Server 2.0

Dataware Technologies, Inc. today announced the Dataware II Knowledge Query Server 2.0, a comprehensive information retrieval solution that seamlessly integrates with corporate intranets — allowing users to simultaneously query multiple information repositories, including internal and external web-based resources such as Lotus Domino databases, document management systems and intranets. Each query returns results in a single, merged and formatted list that is easy for users to understand and act upon. Users need not perform numerous individual searches of knowledge sources inside and outside their organizations — a single search provides a portal to all available information. Knowledge Query Server 2.0 takes advantage of the combined power of leading web search engines — including AltaVista, Northern Light, HotBot, Excite, Fulcrum, Infoseek, Verity, Lycos, Magellan, WebCrawler, DejaNews and other internet or intranet HTTP-compatible search services — and then processes the returns to provide users with unified, intelligently sorted information. Searches can be created to comb multiple intranet-based corporate resources exclusive of the Internet or examine internal and external web-based sources at the same time.

UWI.Com and Commerce One Partner with XML-Based E-Commerce

UWI.Com, and Commerce One, announced a partnership that will integrate Commerce One’s MarketSite and UWI.Com’s InternetForms System, to streamline the supply chain and bring, XML-based e-commerce to all sizes of trading organizations. The integration allows a trading community’s suppliers to interact with MarketSite using InternetForms, which provides simplified supplier integration into the MarketSite marketplace. Typically, suppliers are small and medium-sized organizations (SMEs) who still use costly channels such as paper, email, and fax to perform transactions with a MarketSite trading community. For example, historically a supplier has used email or fax to exchange catalog content updates, status updates, invoices, and purchase orders with its trading community, which were then manually entered into MarketSite. Soon, suppliers will be able to connect to a MarketSite trading community with a web browser, open an InternetForm (for example, a catalog content update), fill it out, sign it and submit it, facilitating e-commerce trading with the community and removing manual entry from the process.,

XML Support for Smith-Gardner’s WebOrder

Smith-Gardner & Associates, Inc., provider of enterprise-wide software solutions to the global direct marketing industry, announces that it is adopting XML for its WebOrder system.

XML provides WebOrder with a powerful facility to share back-end enterprise data with other applications in real-time. In addition, WebOrder’s XML DTDs will facilitate ease of integration into heterogeneous web environments. Intelligent information is formatted in multi-dimensional documents that will simplify the exchange and make it available in a user-friendly format. XML will interpret and standardize data from WebOrder, such as real-time inventory status, customer records, customer order history, customer preferences, demographics and further enterprise information. The addition of XML broadens WebOrder’s open technologies: common objects, an open API, an SDK and traditional CGI executables.
