Convera Corporation, a provider of search technologies for professional workers, has launched the TrueKnowledge Platform. The platform applies Convera advanced search technologies to enterprise and web environments, designed to enable individuals to access information both within their corporation and across the internet in a single view.
Through the unified TrueKnowledge Platform, Convera will deliver three solutions: Convera TrueKnowledge for Web--a hosted service that provides a customized search engine for content publishers serving professional markets. Convera TrueKnowledge for Discovery--a bundled hardware and software product deployed behind an organization's firewall designed to enable them to search billions of internal documents as well as information on the web; and Convera TrueKnowledge for Enterprise--a software-only enterprise search offering with the ability to incorporate selected web content. Convera is currently making TrueKnowledge for Discovery available to RetrievalWare customers who have large-scale and mixed enterprise and web search needs. Convera has also established a migration path to TrueKnowledge for Enterprise following the delivery of RetrievalWare 8.2 in the third quarter of this fiscal year.
Both TrueKnowledge for Discovery and TrueKnowledge for Enterprise will support RetrievalWare intellectual property. Stored queries, profiles and taxonomies built and deployed on RetrievalWare can be migrated to the new platform. Convera customers under maintenance contracts will be upgraded to the TrueKnowledge for Enterprise software solution at no additional expense. Optional functionality delivered as part of TrueKnowledge for Enterprise will carry an additional cost. TrueKnowledge for Web and TrueKnowledge for Discovery are available immediately. Convera plans to release TrueKnowledge for Enterprise in 2007.
