Reviewing OpenPipeline

OpenPipeline is an initiative proposed by search engine company Dieselpoint to begin development of standards in the enterprise and customer facing search marketplace.

"Current solutions are proprietary and require that search administrators define and manage data source connectors, file filters, text analyzers, taxonomy, and dictionaries for each search engine technology," says Miles Kehoe, CEO of New Idea Engineering. "Defining once and maintaining a single source regardless of how many and which search engine you use is a big win for customers. We hope other search engine vendors will be adopting this strategy soon." 

"Enterprise search is not the same as web searching", Chris Cleveland, CEO of Dieselpoint says, "because it entails all of the nitty-gritty preparation for search—that is, it requires doing all of those things you need to do to get a document and standardize it before indexing. OpenPipeline, he says, aims to streamline the preparation process through its innovative document-processing capabilities."
