SearchInform Technologies Inc. has introduced a new version of SearchInform, a corporate system of full text search and search for documents with similar content in large databases, featuring added support of Lotus databases with automatic recognition of attribute field formats.
The program contains a data source for connecting to any database that has Lotus Notes drivers installed in its system. Lotus Notes with its email, calendar, and scheduling capabilities serves as a background for corporate document management and decision- making systems, as well as for various specialized catalogues. When first examining Lotus Notes databases, SearchInform automatically recognizes the format of documents' attribute fields. The user can then select whether the text should be treated as an attribute or as a document in its own format (by default all fields are treated as attributes).
Main features of SearchInform 3.5.01 include: phrase search with due consideration to stemming and thesaurus; SoftInform Search Technology of search for similar documents; support of over 60 text formats, Outlook and TheBat electronic messages, mp3 and avi tags, and logs of MSN and ICQ instant messaging programs; Lotus Notes support; and universal data sources (indexing of DBMS).
