Within a partnership framework, ConWeaver, a spin-off of the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research, and Pironet NDH are combining their expertise in the field of Enterprise Content Management (ECM). The result is a new concept combining ConWeaver semantic search technology with the content management solution pirobase CMS from Pironet NDH. This provides a solution with which firms can use their existing knowledge to the full and, at the same time, apply it where it is needed. ConWeaver and Pironet NDH are offering this service mainly to large corporates who wish to strengthen their market position through strategic knowledge management.
Knowledge network facilitates intelligent search
With its solution of the same name, ConWeaver offers intelligent searches in the corporate portal or intranet through the integration of data and document pools with the help of a knowledge network. This knowledge network is used by ConWeaver as a logical search index for all connected data sources. The user can access all data and document pools with just one query formulation and receives a complete search result which sets the individual contents in relation to each other. In comparison with conventional search methods the user can find content using a semantic search which cannot be found by classic search engines and which provide him with a full picture of the subject in question.
Exploit knowledge potential
In order to render the search results usable for the firm, ConWeaver can be integrated into pirobase CMS through a direct interface. In this way, customers can prepare the content for different purposes – for a collaboration, for example, or as a basis for management decisions. In this case, they benefit from a comprehensive content management solution, the effectiveness of which is enhanced even further by the integration of important content found by means of the semantic search.
