BrightPlanet Corporation has announced the release of version 3.0 of the Deep Federation Portal (DFP) with Management Center. The DFP is an automated Web portal that can harvest from hundreds or thousands of other Web sites and publish that information on a unified, comprehensive portal automatically.
The new Management Center simplifies the process of setup, node definition and maintenance easy for any individual responsible for portal operation. Categorization is especially fast because it is performed dynamically as nodes are defined and added. Even a complete categorization doesn't take much time--a portal of over a thousand nodes and 250,000 documents will place documents in just one hour.
The Deep Federation Portal is able to harvest from conventional Web sites, search engines, and Web directories, as well as from the Deep Web. And organizations can also harvest internal documents from their file systems in a wide variety of formats.
