Convera announced the commercial availability of RetrievalWare 8, a new knowledge discovery platform that helps large organizations automate their knowledge management and discovery processes using an infrastructure that can be optimized for specific industry and government applications. RetrievalWare 8 integrates Convera’s enterprise search with industry-specific taxonomies and new categorization and dynamic classification software, delivering techniques for searching, navigating and discovering knowledge, including hidden relationships, patterns and trends.
