The volume of documents that comprise today’s business environment is overwhelming, and increasing every day.
The need for employees to remember the location and format of corporate information places a great burden on an
organization's resources. Most current search techniques are limited in their accuracy and efficiency. Today's approach
for managing unstructured information includes manually describing or "tagging" information. Tagging unstructured
information for computers to understand is very expensive and time-consuming. The process uses techniques that
identify and retrieve information using basic keywords attached to the documents. Such an environment makes it
difficult or impossible to access required information, particularly where there is a need to:
Combine information from different sources to allow a single search.
Conduct searches on vast amounts of information residing in various data stores and data formats, to obtain
quick and precise results.
Provide a multi-dimensional search capability to search every piece of information in every possible way.
For example, conducting a product search by model, location, color, date of production, or any combination
of criteria required to deliver the needed results.
Automate the process of matching suitable results to specific search criteria.
Improve the percentage of first pass hits based on information provided in the job specification.
THE ANSWER: DIAMOND DATA SEARCH (DDS)
DDS is an application that automatically processes, analyzes and provides the ability to manage and
retrieve unstructured information. From emails and presentations, to analysis, reports and Web pages, DDS
provides a solution to the issue of unstructured information by providing an efficient means of managing the vast
and disparate types of information saturated throughout today's business environment. DDS automates the
process of locating relevant business information within the mass of unstructured data stored in an organization's
centralized repositories, libraries, file systems and existing document management systems.
DDS can also process and combine your structured data held within database rows, columns and BLOBs.
This enables information retrieval using natural query language across your complete corporate knowledge base.
You can also logically link information so that related material—regardless of the source—is presented to the user
as a single source of information.
DDS technology is based on powerful pattern-recognition algorithms that allow it to analyze the
concepts inherent in text documents, emails and presentations. This unique technology allows information to be
searched in any language, you don't need to learn specific query languages. DDS automates your data
management process, freeing users from having to remember the format and location of information and
eliminating the need to describe specific meta-data information about the documents. DDS Agent
functionality makes obsolete the requirement to explicitly search for information. The technology provides the tools
and basis for a wide range of solutions, including automatic categorization of information, personalized and
automatic delivery of relevant information, user and customer profiling, and communities of interest.
DDS is a content-based catalog and search tool that allows you to automate the management of virtually
all formats of digital content. From databases to documents, and emails to presentations, DDS provides an
automated, seamless solution to the problem of finding and cataloging your information resources. DDS
utilizes a number of autonomous agents that automatically analyze, index, and assign the content to subject classes,
allowing users to visually navigate to their chosen category with natural language search and a "Find Similar" capability.
INTELLIGENT CONCEPT RETRIEVAL
DDS technology supports natural language search capability, in any human language and with any
business nomenclature. The system matches the concepts specified in the user query to the underlying concepts held
within the business data. The DDS solution provides automatic summaries of documents, relevance ranking,
term highlighting and other powerful search capabilities, including cross language search. These capabilities are
complemented by additional Boolean, keyword, phrase and meta-data search features to provide a robust and
complete information retrieval system.
DDS automatically extracts the most conceptually relevant information from larger documents and then
summarizes this information based on the concepts provided by the user. The result: instant, precise, relevant information.
DDS recommends relevant documents, presentations, emails and other business information by using an
automatic linking mechanism to relate similar information. And because similar documents are related dynamically,
you gain powerful insight and drill-down capabilities among new and old information.
AUTOMATIC CAPTURE AND INDEX
The DDS application offers automatic aggregation of content. As new documents, emails and other
unstructured content arrive into the business environment, the information is automatically captured and made
available for searching. DDS allows businesses to enhance their existing technology infrastructure by
providing an automated way to capture metadata while respecting existing document security settings.
