The Search-in-a-box is the most powerful semantic search appliance on the market today, leveraging the world’s most powerful search engine with the well-established ISO 25964-1 compliant, ontology-based, and concept definition tool. There are several search appliances available today, but in practice they offer the same precarious features as most Internet search engines, word searches and results pointing to thousands of documents containing the searched words. This tool uses a different approach by trying to understand the meaning of the terms the users are searching about.
If your organization has a specific topic of interest, the component “TheXML” included in the appliance will help you define the concepts and their interrelationships. When generating ontologies (ontolections) for the Data Explorer, the “core” of this appliance turns into a search engine expert, producing results that cannot be replicated by other products. Of the utmost importance is also the fact that, as an appliance, there is no need for installing any piece of software, not to mention the freedom from not having to maintain software and hardware, thus reducing the TCO.
Access to all functionalities is done through a standard web browser and the administration interface of the semantic tool, “TheXML”, which has versions in Brazilian Portuguese and American English.
