Google's Search Appliance (GSA), with Cloud Connect, is no longer the only game in town to connect to and index content in Google Docs. Recommind, a manufacturer of search and predictive information management software, announced the capability of searching content stored in Google Docs, as well as the means to index other cloud-based repositories, with the latest version of its enterprise search product: Decisiv Search 7.1.
Decisiv Search is built on Recommind's CORE platform (Context Optimized Relevancy Engine) and uses Java and XML technologies to index and store content in proprietary data structures. Decisive Search retrieves indexed content via an Ajax-based search interface, which allows users to sort and navigate search results on demand and view discreet objects and files.
Recommind's new connector to Google Docs is based on a Java framework that will allow enterprises and law firms to build out more connectors to other cloud-based services, e.g., Dropbox. And you don't need an SDK, says Derek Schueren, Recommind co-founder and general manager of Information Access & Governance. The new search functionality to gather content from cloud-based services is built into the core technology of the product and responds to the company's observation that law firm and enterprise law departments are embracing cloud services in response to client needs, according to Schueren.
Other new developments in Decisiv Search 7.1 include:
• new filtered views of data that can be applied to search results in real time;
• advanced document rendering that takes advantage of XML, e.g., previews Word documents with hyperlinks; and
• dynamic page views that automatically scroll down a page to retrieve more documents listed in search results and more pages in a multi-page document.
