Percussion Software and Convera Partner

Dec 19, 2003

Percussion Software has formed a partnership with Convera, a provider of search and categorization solutions. The partnership is initially focused on using Convera's RetrievalWare search technology for the content delivery environments based on Percussion's Rhythmyx 5 Enterprise Content Management (ECM) system and the newly announced Rhythmyx Express Portal. The combination of RetrievalWare search technology and Rhythmyx Content Management System is intended to create a solution for organizations that want to roll out robust, secure, and scalable search capabilities for Internet, intranet, and extranet applications. Percussion will provide RetrievalWare for Rhythmyx delivery environments starting immediately.

The Convera RetrievalWare search engine will search content delivered by Rhythmyx 5 to any delivery repository, including Percussion's Rhythmyx Express Portal and other portals. Working in these content delivery environments, RetrievalWare will provide search capabilities in the aggregation of delivery channels, scaling as required to meet an organization's needs. The two products together reinforce the content delivery of the Rhythmyx 5 De-Coupled Delivery Architecture and the integration of Rhythmyx 5 with the Rhythmyx Express Portal, a workgroup portal, designed to enable organizations to achieve standard portal benefits. Convera RetrievalWare is a platform for enterprise search and categorization. The search technology supports a range of content types and sources including text, video and audio files, HTML, XML, and over 200 proprietary document formats.
