Verity Inc. announced a new program intended to increase the number of organizations that can benefit from its downloadable Ultraseek enterprise search software. At the core of the program is a new, simplified pricing approach for the Ultraseek software. Organizations can download Verity Ultraseek, index information in minutes and search up to 25,000 documents free of charge for one year. Incremental document amounts can be purchased as business needs grow. Those who want to unify their enterprise search for an unlimited number of documents can purchase a four-year usage license at $75,000 USD. Customers will also benefit from capabilities that had previously been treated and priced as options. They include the Ultraseek Content Classification Engine (CCE), XPA Java API and multilingual support. Verity will continue to offer K2 Enterprise to meet global organizations’ requirements for advanced collaborative classification, profiling and recommendation features.
RSD announced the release of EOS Thin Client 3.4 with functionality designed to transparently customize the presentation of and access to content. Form management, a new feature available in its Web-based control panel, permits the administrator to set defaults for the activation of predefined actions when content is delivered on-line. These settings, which can be applied to all content or to specific groups of documents, provide the administrator with the means to tailor the presentation of content and protect against unauthorized export or e-mailing of sensitive information. When accessed, a document can automatically be converted from a print format to a viewing format. Content that is set up as a table can routinely be displayed so that headers and side titles are visible as the user scrolls through it. The process of printing can be streamlined with appropriate defaults for font size and page orientation.
Data mining is made easier by its automatic activation when a document is accessed. To address strategic and security requirements of specific organizations unable to use applets for content viewing, EOS Thin Client now delivers direct HTML viewing abilities. EOS Thin Client 3.4 offers a consistent means of administering, managing and retrieving all types of business information.
