Convera Partnership with IBM Brings New Publishing Customer Wins

Mar 11, 2003

Three of the news dailies have added an advanced news retrieval system developed by IBM and Convera. The Hindu, India's leading national daily newspaper; San Antonio Express-News, one of South Texas' leading dailies; and Sun-Sentinel, the major daily newspaper of Florida's Broward and South Palm Beach counties are using Convera's RetrievalWare search, retrieval and categorization technology to streamline production operations as part of IBM's Network Interactive Content Access (NICA) publishing industry solution. NICA is a digital asset management pre-press solution that provides newspaper and magazine publishers the ability to manage, archive, retrieve and reuse publishing data such as text, images, graphics and PDFs while offering integration with their production workflows, editorial creation front-end systems and industry specific business practices. NICA also provides the workflow management that allows the easy repurposing of publishing content either from its own repository or from an external enterprise content management repository, and it helps perform faster, more accurate searches in their native language.
