DocSoft Announces New Enterprise Search Technology

DocSoft announced their new enterprise search technology, called “Element”. With Element as a plug-n-play addition to a company’s network, users will be able to search for stored data across the network “smarter”. Element indexes XML-originated documents according to each tag or “element,” which provides what the company calls “context searching.” Element can search metadata embedded into virtually any file format using Adobe’s eXtensible Metadata Platform (XMP). The technical side of Element allows the appliance to index 26 different file formats. These formats include XML, HTML, PDF, SVG, CGM, Microsoft Office products, some common audio and video files, and any file in which XMP can be used to embed metadata. The appliance’s interface allows users to select predetermined “schemas” or data categories to perform context searches of XML documents. DocSoft has had Element in the works for the past 23 months and recently announced the release of the software. The Element appliances are scheduled for availability in the 2nd quarter of 2006. To download a free, fully-functional software version that will index up to 5,000 documents, go to: ,
