Ixxus is contributing a new tool that integrates the faceted search capabilities of Apache Solr into Alfresco 4. CMS Critic brought this news to our attention in their article, “New Alfresco Faceted Search by Ixxus Delivers Enhanced Enterprise Content Search.” This new addition will assist Alfresco in fulfilling the ‘Smart Search’ requirements of its 2012 Product Road Map. Other benefits will include enhanced functionality and discoverability using metadata-driven, faceted searching. The new faceted base search will greatly improve the discoverability of content and search results.

Findability is important for any system in any organization. Without being able to find data quickly and completely, what is the point? This can be achieved by creating strong taxonomies. Proper indexing against a strong standards-based taxonomy increases the findability of data.

Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies.
