Convera announced the release of twenty domain-specific semantic network cartridges that enhance enterprise search accuracy, relevancy and personalization. The plug-and-play cartridges, which capitalize on Convera's recent acquisition of linguistic technology specialist Semantix Inc., allow customers to work with vocabularies more relevant to their specific business or industry.

The new pre-packaged cartridges seamlessly plug into Convera's RetrievalWare enterprise search, retrieval and categorization solution and join Convera's existing selection of cartridges that support a wide range of languages. The twenty semantic network cartridges, fully supported by RetrievalWare's concept-based searching method, include thousands of terms and concepts unique to industries such as: biology, computers, finance, food science, law, petroleum, pharmacology and telecommunications.

Among those who benefit from the release of the new cartridges are the vertical markets already targeted by Convera, including the government, financial and life sciences sectors. For example, Convera serves more than 70 intelligence and law enforcement organizations in the United States and other countries. The intelligence agencies, already engaged in mission-critical search applications concerning homeland security and intelligence gathering, can refine and personalize their RetrievalWare deployments by adding cartridges for army, chemistry or geography, enabling them to work with vocabularies more relevant to their operations.
