V-spaces Federated Search
Today's information landscape is characterized by the extraordinary proliferation of Web sites and online databases. For users, the Internet facilitates instant access to a wealth of information resources from virtually any location. Yet navigating the maze of all available resources in pursuit of relevant, context-specific, and customized information is often a daunting challenge.
V-spaces is a personalized federated search solution that integrates sophisticated tools for powerful federated searching, information discovery and data enrichment. Through a single access point, users can find and retrieve dynamic, customized and enriched information from diverse information resources in a single, clear and coherent search environment.
Fundamental to the V-spaces experience is an exceedingly easy and convenient search process. The user takes only one action to find information in the defined resources: he or she merely enters the search query in the search box. The search may also be limited by choosing from a list of predefined individual, or multiple, resources. Users can also save preferred resources, eliminating the need to select resources each time a new search is conducted.
