Key Capabilities with Extended IBM WebSphere Portal Search

In addition to WebSphere Portal search functions enhanced search from Diegesis using IBM OmniFind and extended capabilities enabled by UIMA can provide:

  • Search across your entire information domain with appropriate user security and access controls maintained
  • Search on document content not just titles and file names. Go beyond keyword search and beyond Google™ style search to gain search results based on the meaning of words in context
  • Natural language search terms.  Write the search the way you would ask it of another person – not just keywords
  • Semantic search and disambiguation.  For example, when your search includes the word ‘set’, or ‘polo’, or ‘June’, which definition of those words do you want results for?  The search engine helps resolve this through linguistic analysis and user navigation support, ensuring the results set is as pertinent as possible to the user’s intent
  • Enhanced results navigation with document summaries, ‘found term’ highlighting and collapsible results based on categories across information sources
  • Enhanced language support
  • Enterprise security features
  • Automatic spell check to suggest corrections for misspelled search terms
  • Predefined links means that search results can include associated pre-defined links defined by the administrator
  • Enhanced performance and use reports as well as problem reporting features
  • Gain insight into other potentially pertinent information through linguistic analysis so that a search for ‘vehicle’ also returns results for types of vehicles e.g. lorry, car, truck, motorbike... Enable search for all variants of a verb.  Enable a search for ‘election’ to also locate items with ‘vote’ or ‘ballot’ or other related terms
  • Automatically handle synonyms, acronyms, abbreviations, variant spellings and contractions - providing results for the contraction and its extended form and for accepted variant spellings - where beneficial to do so
  • Understand location concepts e.g. a search for South America can return results for countries and locations within South America – not just for items containing the term ‘South America’
  • Extract telephone numbers even if they are not labelled as such
  • Search across multiple languages
  • Find ‘people’ even if you do not know their name(s)
  • Embed multi system search into Portal to provide a seamless user interface which enables the power of portal search and OmniFind enterprise search to co-exist transparently to the user.

Using a combination of advanced techniques including natural language processing, linguistic analysis, semantic analysis, fuzzy matching, parametric search, federated search, lemmatization and normalisation the enhanced search capabilities delivered by Diegesis using IBM technology provide enhanced efficiency and productivity for users of IBM WebSphere Portal environments.
