Inxight Software, a provider of enterprise software solutions for information discovery, has announced the general availability of Inxight SmartDiscovery Awareness Server 5.2. This federated search and alert solution is designed to help users derive insight and intelligence from hundreds of information sources through a single interface. Alerts and page tracking automatically inform users of new and updated information impacting their business.
SmartDiscovery Awareness Server is preconfigured to search and track relevant data from more than 600 online and enterprise sources, including multiple search engines, deep Web sources such as patent databases and SEC filings, public Web sources such as CNET and MSN Search, subscription-only sources such as LexisNexis and Dialog, and enterprise systems such as Lotus Domino and Documentum. Enterprises can also create customized, automated email alerts and brokers to new information sources through a point-and-click interface. The Alert module in SmartDiscovery Awareness Server includes the ability to set up email and landing page alerts based on changes to a specific document or Web page or the appearance of newly available information of interest in deep Web, internet, news, internal systems, or other sources. Results can be shared with others via email, or formatted for printing and reading offline.
Inxight SmartDiscovery Awareness Server 5.2 new product features include: a customizable architecture, which allows the users to edit any or all of the following modules: Source Brokers, Result Analysis, Duplicate Result Detection, Result Scoring, Secured Source Authentication, Alert Result Delivery, and Alert Report Generation; integrated user authentication, which is now integrated with the Web server's authentication, following Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) standards; secure federation, which works with standards-based and proprietary security mechanisms for access and authentication; default search settings, which gives the user the ability to set default settings for all the advanced search forms in a centralized location. These options are used for both the Custom Search Groups, created by the user, and the default search groups; improved alert management, which provides a status view of all alerts, including when the alert will next be run, when changes were last found, etc. While the most recent reports are available via the hyperlinks on the Alert's name and last change date, there is now an enhanced history view for each alert that allows you to view the outcome of every execution and past reports; and improved search progress monitors, which allow the user to get more information while a search is in progress.
