Publish without perishing
Fast Search & Transfer (FAST) has introduced what it calls the industry’s first complete enterprise search-based production management and delivery solution for publishers. ProPublish, the latest search derivative application based on the FAST Enterprise Search Platform, was designed to give professional and business publishers a solution for gathering and processing data, resulting in the improved delivery of job-critical information to both online and offline users.
The company says key elements of ProPublish include:
Production Manager--a graphical tool that allows publishers to perform live updates on their online and offline published content, protect it from unauthorized use, as well as manage content processing, subscriptions and site structure.
Content Processing Pipeline--a feature that offers stages for automated entity extraction, linguistic analysis and content classification, facilitating reduced production costs associated with creating publications.
ProPublish also includes support for both controlling access and administering content licenses. The publications can be restricted to a given user for a given period of time and even be timed-out at the end of the subscription.
