Description

OmniFind Enterprise Edition V8.4 and OmniFind Enterprise Starter Edition V8.4 offer a unique combination of content reach, security, scalability, enterprise integrations, and openness to deliver powerful enterprise search capabilities and a platform for processing unstructured data through text analytics. Both offerings build on the core capabilities of WebSphere Information Integrator OmniFind Edition V8.3 and WebSphere Information Integrator OmniFind Starter Edition V8.3, and feature new improvements in the areas of security, usability and performance, and WebSphere Portal integration.

Since OmniFind Enterprise Starter Edition V8.4 is not limited in functionality, all references to OmniFind Enterprise Edition V8.4 in this section also pertain to OmniFind Enterprise Starter Edition V8.4, except where noted.

Content reach

OmniFind Enterprise Edition provides search capability of more than 25 enterprise content sources. These are ready-to-deploy packaged integrations and many are included in the base product, while others are available on a per connector basis. With these integrations, an enterprise can create a search application that indexes content from all of these sources and provides users with a single point to find what they need.

New in OmniFind Enterprise Edition V8.4:

  • The ability to crawl content in Windows SharePoint Services.
  • A native crawler for IBM Workplace Web Content Management™ sites on WebSphere Portal V6 servers.
  • A JDBC connector to access some JDBC-compliant relational data sources without any additional middleware software required.

Pre-built connectors are available for the following data sources:

Additional connectors can be built to other data sources.

Optimal performance with some content management sources may require some additional configuration services.

In addition to a broad set of content sources, OmniFind Enterprise Edition supports content and queries in over 50 languages, with advanced linguistic support (including stemming and lemmatization) for 24 languages (including Chinese, Japanese, and Korean). IBM's global approach, including Content Discovery development organizations in Europe and Asia as well as the Americas, also makes OmniFind Enterprise Edition a natural fit for global and multinational organizations.

Security

Since enterprise content can be highly sensitive, OmniFind Enterprise Edition provides full security capabilities to ensure that search users only see the results to which they have authorized access. OmniFind Enterprise Edition offers multiple security mechanisms to allow for the most flexible solution for a given search application. At query time, before results are presented back to a user, OmniFind Enterprise Edition can coordinate with the underlying content stores to verify authorization. This ensures that no matter how frequently access controls change, search results will always respect the underlying security model. Additionally or as an alternative, OmniFind Enterprise Edition can index the access control lists for each document, improving the performance of secure search.

In V8.4 of OmniFind Enterprise Edition, the ability to verify authorization with the owning repository at query time is supported for the following data sources:

  • Notes®/Domino
  • WebSphere Portal Document Manager
  • WebSphere Portal pages
  • Domino Document Manager
  • Lotus QuickPlace
  • DB2 Content Manager Multiplatform
  • FileNet CS
  • FileNet P8 CM
  • Hummingbird DM
  • Windows File System
  • Windows SharePoint Services, Service Pack 2, for Windows 2003
  • Documentum
  • Open Text Livelink
  • WebSphere Portal Web Content Management V6.0

Also, OmniFind Enterprise Edition V8.4 supports single sign-on (SSO) authentication through WebSphere Application Server Lightweight Third-party Authentication (LTPA) for the following data source types:

  • Domino Document Manager, Lotus Notes, and Lotus QuickPlace databases. The crawlers must use Domino Internet Inter-ORB Protocol (DIIOP) to connect to the Domino servers.
  • Portal Document Management repositories accessible by the WebSphere Information Integrator Content Edition connector.
  • When users use the OmniFind Enterprise Edition search portlet to search collections from within WebSphere Portal, SSO security is also provided for documents crawled by the Web Content Management and WebSphere Portal crawlers.

For companies that have not yet implemented a full single SSO solution, OmniFind Enterprise Edition provides an optional built-in mechanism for caching search users' various logins, to minimize the number of sign-in requests.

Scalability

OmniFind Enterprise Edition supports indexing and search on millions of content items. Indexing is multithreaded to take full advantage of multiserver nodes and supports a delta index for incremental updates.

OmniFind Enterprise Edition is used to power IBM's own intranet, covering over 8,000 sites, over 25M pages, and supporting over 300,000 employees.

Note that OmniFind Enterprise Starter Edition V8.4 is limited to two-processor implementations. If you wish to start with a small implementation, you can seamlessly move the application to OmniFind Enterprise Edition with the purchase of a trade-up license.

Usability and performance

OmniFind Enterprise Edition V8.4 includes several new features and enhancements that make the product easier to install, use, and service for a faster up-and-running experience. OmniFind Enterprise Edition V8.4 includes an embedded open source database for storing crawler data, revisit Web addresses, and security credentials. This eliminates the requirement for database skills to configure and administer the system. OmniFind Enterprise Edition V8.4 also includes a high availability, two-server configuration option. This allows an administrator to install the crawler, the indexer, and the search runtime components on one server, and the search runtime on a second server. By making the search component available on two different servers, this option provides high search availability and server redundancy without the requirement to go to a four-server configuration.

OmniFind Enterprise Edition V8.4 also includes a number of enhancements to the sample search application. A new tool is provided to enable customization of the search application via a graphical user interface, making it easier to tailor the search application for the planned usage. Also, users can sort search results by selecting the field to sort by, such as title, in addition to sorting by relevance or date. Another valuable feature taking advantage of the UIMA infrastructure is the capability to use semantic search via synonym expansion, illustrated with sample annotators for phone numbers, Web Addresses, and e-mail addresses.

Enterprise integrations

In addition to the broad set of enterprise connectors, OmniFind Enterprise Edition also offers a full search and indexing API, and supports UIMA. OmniFind Enterprise Edition provides an open platform for integrations on the front end, to back-end data sources and systems, and to information extractors during the indexing pipeline. In addition to a stand-alone search application, OmniFind Enterprise Edition includes WebSphere Portal integrations that can extend the standard search capability of WebSphere Portal. This allows for a single search interface within Portal to cover a full set of enterprise content repositories in a secure manner. Integrations to desktop search tools, such as Google Desktop and X1, are also available.

OmniFind is unique in that it exposes the heart of its indexing pipeline through an open source API. UIMA allows pluggable annotators to be inserted into the standard document indexing flow in order to infer and extract searchable structured metadata from content. In addition to the search capability, this extracted knowledge can also be used to provide stand-alone reports or to drive analytics applications.

OmniFind Enterprise Edition V8.4 provides enhanced integration to WebSphere Portal V6, including a native Web Content Management crawler for crawling IBM Workplace Web Content Management sites using native security. It supports the new WebSphere Portal V6 Search Center, making OmniFind Enterprise Edition collections searchable through the Search Center portlet, and offers the ability to redirect queries from the WebSphere Portal Search bar or Search Center to the OmniFind Enterprise Edition search portlet. Also, through an automated command-line script, the OmniFind Enterprise Edition search portlet is now much easier and quicker to deploy.

Taxonomy

To simplify enterprise search deployments, OmniFind Enterprise Edition V8.4 provides the ability to configure rules to control which documents are associated with categories in a collection.

Unlike many navigation-only solutions, OmniFind Enterprise Edition does not require a pre-defined taxonomy in order to deliver highly relevant search results. However, it can take advantage of taxonomy tags to influence both the results and interface of a search application.

Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act

IBM OmniFind Enterprise Edition is capable as of December 13, 2006, when used in accordance with IBM's associated documentation, of satisfying the applicable requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, provided that any assistive technology used with the product properly interoperates with it. A U.S. Section 508 Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT), containing details on the products accessibility compliance, can be requested at

IPLA and Subscription and Support considerations

IPLA licenses can be transferred from one machine to another within, but not limited to an enterprise. You may aggregate the capacity for all the processors the product is operated on to achieve a more economic price. This will result in a single Proof of Entitlement (PoE). It is your responsibility to manage the distribution of Value Units within the limits of the entitlement of the product license.

Subscription and Support must cover the same capacity as the product license entitlement. Subscription and Support will be available in the country in which the agreement is made.

Limited use of IBM OmniFind Enterprise Edition in IBM WebSphere Portal V6.0

OmniFind Enterprise Edition V8.4 is designed to integrate out-of-the-box with WebSphere Portal V6 to provide scalable and secure enterprise search directly from within the WebSphere Portal interface. This integration provides several advantages over using the embedded Portal Search Engine, including the ability to scale to millions of documents, secure access to non-Web enterprise content sources, and all of the rich search functionality available in OmniFind Enterprise Edition including synonym expansion, Quick Links, dynamic summaries, and more.

OmniFind Enterprise Edition V8.4 supports the new WebSphere Portal V6 Search Center, making OmniFind Enterprise Edition collections searchable through the Search Center portlet, and offers the ability to redirect queries from the WebSphere Portal Search bar or Search Center to the OmniFind Enterprise Edition search portlet. The OmniFind Enterprise Edition search portlet can be deployed quickly through an automated command-line script to expose all of the advanced search functionality available in OmniFind Enterprise Edition directly through the Portal. In addition, OmniFind Enterprise Edition V8.4 includes a new Web Content Management crawler for crawling through IBM Workplace Web Content Management™ sites using native security.

To help customers experience first-hand how OmniFind Enterprise Edition can help them extend the reach, scope, and value of their Portal applications, WebSphere Portal V6 customers are now entitled to a limited use license of OmniFind Enterprise Edition.

The limited use license of OmniFind Enterprise Edition is applicable to IBM WebSphere Portal Enable V6 and IBM WebSphere Portal Extend V6, including the limited use versions of these offerings.

License terms

The following terms are in addition to the License Information terms for IBM WebSphere Portal Version 6.0 and applies to licensees of WebSphere Portal.

  • The following usage terms apply only when IBM OmniFind Enterprise Edition functionality is acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement as part of your entitlement of WebSphere Portal V6.0 for your enterprise.
    • Your use of IBM OmniFind Enterprise Edition is restricted to the WebSphere Portal environment.
    • Limited use IBM OmniFind Enterprise Edition is limited to one processor entitlement for nonproduction use (development and testing), and one processor entitlement for production use.
    • Only the following data sources may be accessed from Limited Use IBM OmniFind Enterprise Edition:
      • WebSphere Portal pages
      • WebSphere Portal Document Manager
      • Workplace Web Content Management
      • Lotus Notes®/Domino®
      • Lotus® QuickPlace®
      • Lotus Domino Document Manager
      • Windows and UNIX® file systems
      • Web (HTTP/HTTPS/NNTP)
  • If you wish to access additional sources or make use of more than one processor entitlement for either development or production use, a full use license of IBM OmniFind Enterprise Edition must be acquired, as well as the appropriate connector entitlements.

Charge metrics definitions

Value Unit

A Value Unit is a pricing charge metric for program license entitlements which is based upon the quantity of a specific designated measurement used for a given program. Each program has a designated measurement. The most commonly used designated measurement is a processor core. However, for select programs, there are other designated measurements such as users, client devices, and messages. The number of Value Unit entitlements required for a program depends on how the program is deployed in your environment and must be obtained from a Value Unit table. You must obtain a PoE for the calculated number of Value Unit entitlements for your implementation. The Value Unit entitlements are specific to a program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with Value Unit entitlements of another program.

Processor (Value Unit)

A processor core is a functional unit within a computing device that interprets and executes instructions. A processor core consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic or logic unit. With multicore technology, each core is considered a processor. Not all processor cores require the same number of Value Unit entitlements. To calculate the number of Value Unit entitlements required, refer to the Value Unit table on the following Web site

With full capacity licensing, a PoE must be acquired for the appropriate number of value units based on all activated processor cores available for use on the server.

Sub-capacity processor (Value Unit)

For programs eligible for sub-capacity licensing, a PoE must be acquired for the appropriate number of value units based on all activated processor cores available for use in each partition (utilizing eligible partitioning technologies) where the program runs. Refer to the "International Passport Advantage Agreement Attachment for sub-capacity terms" or the program's license information to determine applicable sub-capacity terms.

Connector

WebSphere Information Integrator Connector entitles you to have one connector for accessing remote data source from the server on which the program is installed.

Sub-capacity for selected middleware products

Sub-capacity licensing on a per-processor or per Value Unit basis is available for selected middleware products. To offer sub-capacity licensing, IBM software products implement IBM Tivoli® License Manager within their offerings so that customers can monitor and report quarterly to IBM on their use of the programs on a continuous basis.

More information can be found on the Passport Advantage Web site

Eligibility requirements for sub-capacity licensing

To be eligible for sub-capacity licensing terms on this product, you must agree to install and configure IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software, in accordance with the IBM Tivoli License Manager publications, and to enable the collection of program use data on all eligible machines subject to sub-capacity terms.

For those machines running programs with sub-capacity licensing terms, you must use IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software to monitor program use and submit to IBM an IBM Use Report each calendar quarter. Multiple copies of IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software or IBM Tivoli License Manager are not required. You can use more copies if you need them to support your operational environment, but only one copy is required to monitor all your sub-capacity licensed products.

Additionally, if this is the first product you have licensed under sub-capacity terms, you must agree to the terms of an attachment to your Passport Advantage or Passport Advantage Express contract and submit a new Passport Advantage enrollment form. First-time sub-capacity clients also have an opportunity to ensure a Primary Business Contact is established for their contracts.

For more information on required and entitled license capacity, license requirements and reporting refer to Software Announcement 205-093 , dated April 19, 2005.

You must install and configure this tool for your sub-capacity products. Alternately, you can use Tivoli License Manager. Once the license manager software is installed, you will be required to register online (IBM may need to contact you in order to finalize the registration process). You must monitor program use on a continuous basis with an IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software and submit IBM Use Reports to IBM on a calendar quarterly basis.
