Document filter independent ISYS is hosting a webinar on Wednesday, July 28
at 1PM Eastern to talk about the role document filters play in successful
search indexing and display. You can register now.
Of course, as a search technology company, ISYS has enjoyed great success,
particularly among law enforcement where search has to work right at a
reasonable price. We've always liked their technology and their approach.
But like every search platform, ISYS needed filters to convert so-called
'binary' formats like Microsoft Office, PDF, or even Photoshop files into a
stream of text - after all, today's search platforms primarily operate on
words.. in textual format. But ISYS looked at the market at the time, and found
that two of their competitors, Autonomy and Oracle, own the best of the filter
Like any company, they made a 'make or buy' decision, and in their case, making
their own filters was the right answer for them, and possibly for you. You see,
ISYS decided to start selling their filter technology independent of their
search platform, so now you can acquire some really great filtering and viewing
technology for just about any search engine, 'off the shelf'. Their customers
include other vendors with the need to extract text from various types of
content, not just search vendors but also eDiscovery and eCompliance companies
and many others who don’t want to pay excessive prices for technology - and who
want really great filtering at a reasonable cost.
Then, a few years back, ISYS decided that open source platforms Lucene and
Solr - which had no filters - needed them as well. So now you can buy a great
filter pack 'off the shelf' with no huge volume commitment - no volume commitment
at all! And you can get world class filtering for your open source search
Come hear ISYS, the guys from Lucid Imagination, and us here at New Idea
Engineering talk about the critical role of filters in your search
applications. See you then!
