A cross-functional search infrastructure designed to meet the needs of every department within a company
PolySpot Information At Work is an infrastructure component that can be used to develop innovative and cost-effective search applications, providing users with quick, simple and effective access to the data they need.
PolySpot Information At Work Conversion & Enrichment platform
PolySpot Information At Work can be used for distributed extraction, conversion and enrichment of structured and non-structured raw data and provides search services via an XML/HTTP API.
All PolySpot search applications are based on PolySpot Information At Work, a shared deployment platform for all types of search application, including cross-functional search applications, business intelligence applications and business-specific and decision-making applications.
Combining the versatility of a database and the performance of an index
PolySpot Information At Work is different from standard search solutions, enabling users to develop an innovative search environment capable of handling over-indexing.
Although a standard database is highly versatile, it does not provide high-quality search performance. Similarly, while an index provides unrivalled search performance, it is not sufficiently versatile in terms of data enrichment and updating capabilities. PolySpot Information At Work is an innovative solution that combines the best of both worlds: the performance of an index (PolySpot SearchMart) and the versatility of a semi-structured database (PolySpot InfoWarehouse).
PolySpot Information At Work consists of four modules:
PolySpot Silo Breaker
Distributed data extraction framework.
PolySpot Sense Builder
Dedicated, asynchronous structuring and semantic enrichment platform
Service based on PolySpot InfoWarehouse used to publish index-linked search services. Can be accessed via a range of different applications using an XML/HTTP API.
PolySpot Administration Console
PolySpot Information At Work includes a configuration and administration console that covers the entire process, from connector management to search service creation.
Scalability : PolySpot Information At Work is an infrastructure component that can be fully and transparently integrated into business information systems. Companies are then able to develop their information systems safe in the knowledge that users will have constant access to data via the widest range of connectors currently available. The full range of connectors comes as standard.
Security and IS integration
PolySpot features rigorous security management functions, guaranteeing full compliance with each company's security rules. During the data extraction process, PolySpot Information At Work automatically inherits the security models from indexed repositories. The platform also interfaces with the company's directories (LDAP, Active Directory) and/or SSO (Single Sign On) to recover user profiles.
For PolySpot's customers, the slightest problem with data availability can have serious financial consequences. PolySpot Information At Work is based on an SOA, distributed architecture (distribution, replication and sharding), to ensure that the solutions offer a high level of availability.
