Dynix to Integrate Grokker

Dynix has entered a strategic partnership with Groxis Inc. and has announced plans to integrate Grokker, a graphical informational interface, with future editions of Horizon Information Portal.

Grokker improves the way information is accessed and organized during search sequences by quickly converting data, documents, and search results into contextually relevant, graphical knowledge maps. Search results become a series of circles within circles, with each concentric circle representing a topic and subtopic that is sorted by size and color and based on relevancy. A user can then dig deeper into the results until the desired information is found. www.dynix.com, www.groxis.com
