Oracle extends reach of its enterprise search software
February 5, 2007[From InfoWorld]
Oracle has shipped the first major upgrade to the stand-alone enterprise search software it debuted last year emphasizing new links to third-party data sources and identity management systems.
The company and its applications rivals, notably SAP, see significant revenue opportunities in selling customers products to securely search across their corporate databases, applications, file servers, portals and other Internet sites. The vendors argue that traditional enterprise search software is often too expensive and complicated to use, while desktop search offerings aren't well enough integrated with user authentication systems to enable secure querying.
