Convera announced the commercial availability of RetrievalWare 8, a new knowledge discovery platform that helps large organizations automate their knowledge management and discovery processes using an infrastructure that can be optimized for specific industry and government agency applications. RetrievalWare 8 integrates Convera's proven scalable enterprise search with industry-specific taxonomies and new categorization and dynamic classification software, delivering powerful techniques for searching, navigating and discovering knowledge, including hidden relationships, patterns and trends. With RetrievalWare 8, customers now have a single integrated platform that categorizes and organizes all content including unstructured text, image, video and paper assets, in addition to a variety of structured data sources.

Using Convera's dynamic classification software, end users can launch a search and automatically classify the results based on pre-defined or dynamically generated classifications made possible through the combination of multiple taxonomies. These taxonomies can consist of Convera's pre-packaged industry taxonomies, customer-defined taxonomies or custom taxonomies supplied by Convera's Taxonomy Development Partners. By combining these classifications on the fly, end users are able to isolate and discover critically relevant information that existing search and categorization software cannot uncover.

J2EE, Web Services and .NET Support

RetrievalWare's modern, flexible architecture employs industry standards to achieve broad integration support with the leading development and deployment environments. RetrievalWare services can be implemented as multitier applications that deliver the scalability, accessibility, and manageability that is required to support the world's most demanding enterprise search applications. J2EE-based Pure Java interfaces bring easier integration for customers, partners and OEMs, while enabling the rapid deployment of new features and functionality. RetrievalWare 8 will also support .Net client and server integration, enabling customers with Microsoft-oriented environments to fully leverage RetrievalWare's scalable architecture.
