Semantic search has been the new black in the high fashion ofcontent management and the industries around it. Nstein (news,site), a provider of Web CMS, DAM and text-mining technologies, just released a new product — which they say is more flexible, intuitive and extensible than Google Search Appliance — calledSemantic Site Search, orthe “new kind of site search,” as the vendor humbly refers to it.
We had a chance to get an early demo and talk to Eric Williams, Nstein’s product manager, who told us all about his“little baby” under the code-name 3S. It may be a newborn, but it comes with a strong featureset ofmulti-index federated search,embedded Text Mining Engine,semantic widgets and a moreflexible presentation layer.
Search is Not Easy, or Can Google Save Us?
Let’s start with the fact that despite all the current technologies,search is still a pain. Despite all the tagging with keywords and metadata,we still don’t always get what we want — relevant results.
Nstein seemed to have put a lot of thought into this problem and came up with 3S (Semantic Site Search) that uses their proprietary search algorithms and their text-mining technology to raise to the challenge of actually finding the data users are looking for.Not without a bit of rivalry, Nstein makes it a point to remind us that GSA lacks some of the features that they provide with 3S.
