DocSoft: A New Element
DocSoft: A New Element

To learn more about DocSoft, go to:

The future of search technology is "context searching," which allows users to return more defined and relevant results with each search. By reducing the amount of irrelevant results, context searching streamlines the process, increasing productivity by sharply decreasing overall search time.

XML (eXtensible Markup Language) defines documents using tags, or elements, to encapsulate and describe data. Because XML is becoming more widely used throughout all industries, a context search engine which indexes XML-originated data is a must for businesses seeking increased efficiency and output. By using tags (or 'elements') to define the data, a relationship is created between the elements and the actual data within them.

DocSoft now offers Element, the first appliance for the next generation of plug-and-play search technology. Element is offered as a series of search appliances for small businesses as well as enterprise solutions. Element provides standard searching on the most popular business document formats, but most importantly, it provides context searching of virtually any XML-originated document.

How It Works
The administrative user sets up a context map for each element relationship (either single or parent/child) using Element's web-based Administration Console. The context map assigns descriptive noun names for each selected element or parent/child relationship using standard XPath. This provides the end user a means of identifying in which tags the data was found, regardless of whether the tag names are an accurate descriptor of each element's data.

Once the context maps are created, the administrator points the indexer to repositories via HTTP or standard network address paths - a definite advantage over other search appliances. The administrator then sets intervals for each repository to be indexed.

The intuitive search interface provides the end user the ability to search across all document types or choose a specific document type to search (such as MS Office documents, PDF, HTML; or different XML documents that adhere to different schemas).

The user selects one or more 'contexts,' then types in keywords on which to search. The results are returned quickly, containing only documents meeting the specified contexts. Element's process returns fewer documents, but each returned document is very relevant to the search criteria, eliminating the extra 'sifting' required to find specific data in a large number of results.

Conversely, the user can simply type in a string and hit the search button like a standard search engine. But when the results are returned, the results also display a list of contexts in which the query string was found, enabling the user to make better decisions on which documents to open and view.

The Difference
The difference between Element and the Google appliance is obvious; Google doesn't search or index XML. Plus, the Google appliance only indexes the first 100 KB of any document, and will not search any HTML files over 2.5 MB in size. By contrast, Element is fully configurable, meaning that your system administrator can choose how much of each document to search: 100 KB, 1 MB or even the entire document.

Another feature unique to Element is the ability to search embedded RDF data. RDF (Resource Description Framework), a formal data model from the W3C, uses XML for the description of web resources working with machine-readable metadata. RDF can also be embedded in a variety of media using Adobe's Extensible Metadata Platform (XMP). Element's ability to provide context searching on embedded RDF metadata sets it far apart from all other search engines.

Element's new search technology significantly reduces the end user's search time by refining the results for them. The adage that "the meaning is in the context" is the mantra of Element, and in the demanding world of keyword search engines, quality always wins out over quantity.
