With all eyes on Interwoven and its enterprise search plans in the wake of the Autonomy acquisition (at the moment it looks like Vivisimo is out and Autonomy IDOL will be in – the company will not be going back to the Verity option even tho that is also now part of Autonomy) Recommind has taken the opportunity to announce the availability of MindServer Search 6.0, the latest version of its flagship enterprise search product. Built on Recommind’s CORE platform (Context Optimized Relevancy Engine), the latest version of MindServer Search extends the solution’s functionality, reach and accuracy by adding features such as enhanced relevancy tuning and by extending the system’s federated search framework.

MindServer Search 6.0 allows enterprises to boost certain search
results based on select properties of a document, including: freshness,
rank, specific metadata and document length. Search results can feature
‘Best Bets’ which are preselected files linked to particular queries.
Also available is a ‘Sponsored Links’ feature, which brings external or
indexed documents to the user’s attention through specific queries, but
places them outside of the standard search results area. In addition,
users can choose to boost results based on their individual profile or
that of their team. MindServer Search 6.0’s federated search
capabilities enable users to search across internal and external data
sources with one query. The extended federated search framework in
MindServer Search increases user productivity by integrating internal
and external results in the same result set and highlighting search
terms in external sources.


MindServer Search 6.0 is built on Recommind’s CORE platform, a fully automated information management layer that integrates structured and unstructured data inside and outside of enterprise networks. With the CORE platform, enterprises of all sizes and industries enjoy faster, more accurate and efficient knowledge management, collaboration, records management, regulatory compliance and e-discovery.

Comment: This new focus on CORE is intended to reposition the company's products so customers realise Recommind is not merely a search engine business that also dabbles in records management, compliance and e-discovery but rather is a technology company with its CORE platform that powers its MindServer Search, Decisiv Email, Axcelerate E-Discovery and Insite Legal Hold products.
