Siderean Software, a provider of relational navigation solutions, has announced that the company is a participant in the Oracle Secure Search Initiative. The Secure Search Initiative is designed to allow software vendors like Siderean to partner with the company to develop a set of secure connectors that enable Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g users to access information from disparate enterprise data sources and applications. Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g users can leverage Siderean's flagship Seamark Navigator relational navigation solution to illuminate previously unseen relationships across all formats of digital information to produce a 360 degree view of available information.

With Seamark Navigator, Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g users have a view of the full range of assets that are available for decisions, tasks, and projects. Seamark for Oracle is a solution specifically for Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g. The solution's contextual content view shows the entire scope of available information and incorporates precision search to help users retrieve what they need. Seamark for Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g operates as a web service, allowing existing or new Oracle search deployments to be refined to give users an entirely new, insight-driven experience. Featuring a point-and-click administration interface, Seamark for Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g was designed to allow administration of the navigation experience from the Oracle interface. Additionally, the solution uses the Resource Description Framework (RDF) and Web Ontology Language (OWL) standards from the World-Wide Web Consortium. The Seamark relational navigation engine uses metadata facets to guide users to relevant content, generating views into the available assets based on a user's navigation. Item counts for each metadata facet, as well as the number and type of metadata facets displayed, are updated with each user click. Additional features for Seamark for Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g include: Relational Navigation; Navigation Administration; Controlled Vocabulary Administration; Platform Support; and Secure Infrastructure.

Clarabridge, a text-mining software company, has announced its participation in the Oracle Secure Search Initiative. The company's involvement in the initiative is designed to enable it to provide integration capability between Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g and major business intelligence (BI) tools. The enhanced Oracle-Clarabridge offering will consolidate knowledge stored in various BI applications across the enterprise and make it securely available to business users from an internet-like search box. The Clarabridge BI connector retrieves all reports from enterprise servers and pushes them to an indexing engine, which automatically performs updates as necessary. Results from one BI tool can be presented against another to ensure that the user finds the precise report desired, no matter what the underlying technology.

Inxight Software, Inc., a provider of enterprise software solutions for information discovery, has announced the general availability of Inxight SmartDiscovery Awareness Server for Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g. Inxight has also announced its participation in the Oracle Secure Search Initiative. The new Inxight SmartDiscovery Awareness Server for Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g, powered by Inxight's ThingFinder entity extraction, clusters search results on the fly, enabling users to filter their Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g result sets by the people, companies, places, concepts, and other information contained within them. It augments keyword in context summaries with the "Top Mentions" contained within the full text of the document. In addition, personalized page and term alerts automatically inform users of new information of interest in their Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g indexes, open web or other federated sources. Inxight SmartDiscovery Awareness Server for Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g allows users to simultaneously search not only their Oracle Database and applications, but any public web or Deep Web site, or other data sources using a single query. Awareness Server then allows users to see at a glance and filter search results sets by the relevant people, companies, products, and other information contained within them.
