Video Tour of PolySpot Administration Console
October 24, 2012
Polyspot has posted a YouTube video that serves as a whirlwind tour of their “PolySpot Administration Console / Brand New Version: 6.0.” The two minute video succinctly demonstrates that this console is another useful reference for information mavens.
The Administration Console is one of four consoles included in PolySpot’s Information At Work platform, designed to serve all departments of their clients’ organizations. The product page elaborates:
“All PolySpot search applications are based on PolySpot Information At Work, a shared deployment platform for all types of search application, including cross-functional search applications, business intelligence applications and business-specific and decision-making applications. . . . Although a standard database is highly versatile, it does not provide high-quality search performance. Similarly, while an index provides unrivalled search performance, it is not sufficiently versatile in terms of data enrichment and updating capabilities. PolySpot Information At Work is an innovative solution that combines the best of both worlds: the performance of an index (PolySpot SearchMart) and the versatility of a semi-structured database (PolySpot InfoWarehouse).”
PolySpot focuses on boosting business efficiency with single-point access to a wealth of structured and unstructured data. the company taps into the wonders of open source software, basing its infrastructure on Apache’s Lucene Solr. Founded in 2001, PolySpot makes its home in Paris, France.
