User-based relevance

Recommind has released MindServer Search 6.0, the latest version of its enterprise search product. Built on Recommind’s CORE (Context Optimized Relevancy Engine) platform, Version 6.0 is said to significantly extend the solution’s functionality, reach and accuracy by adding features such as enhanced relevancy tuning and by extending the system’s federated search framework.

Recommind reports its CORE platform is a fully automated information management layer that seamlessly and securely integrates structured and unstructured data inside and outside of enterprise networks. The new version is further said to allow enterprises to boost certain search results based on select properties of a document, including: freshness, rank, specific metadata and document length.

Search results can feature "Best Bets," which are pre-selected files linked to particular queries, says Recommind. Also available is a "Sponsored Links" feature, which brings external or indexed documents to the user’s attention through specific queries, but places them outside the standard search results area. In addition, users can choose to boost results based on their individual profile or that of their team.

MindServer Search 6.0’s federated search capabilities further enable users to search across internal and external data sources with one query. The extended federated search framework in MindServer Search increases user productivity by integrating internal and external results in the same result set and highlighting search terms in external sources, according to Recommind.
