Overview
Bottom rule

IBM OmniFind Enterprise Edition V9.1 and IBM Content Analytics V2.2 are packaged into a single bundled offering called IBM Content Analytics with Enterprise Search.

Today, leading organizations need to use the wealth of available information combined with the power of search and analytics to reach better, faster decisions and actions, optimized processes, and more predictable outcomes. However, organizations whose performance depends on large volumes of unstructured and semi-structured information often have no ability to gain access to, find and derive insight from that information to make better business decisions or gain a business advantage.

With IBM Content Analytics with Enterprise Search, organizations can now benefit from having both an industry-leading enterprise search solution as well as an advanced content analytics platform in a combined package to gain the most value out of their information repositories. With IBM Content Analytics V2.2, organizations get enhancements designed to speed time to value for creating industry solutions, deliver greater ease of use, and more accurate results for better exploratory content analysis as well as improved support for content assessment, Cognos® Business Intelligence, and Advanced Case Management.

IBM Content Analytics with Enterprise Search Starter Pack is appropriate for initial or small deployments.

Description
Bottom rule

By bundling IBM OmniFind Enterprise Edition V9.1 and IBM Content Analytics V2.2 into a single package, you have access to the full capabilities of both content analytics and knowledge-driven enterprise search.

Key capabilities in IBM Content Analytics with Enterprise Search:

  • Quickly see correlations and relationships between multiple concepts with the new connections view
  • Easily create dashboard views to track trends and patterns of critical insights
  • Contains plug in custom user interfaces
  • Helps build facets on the fly with dynamic facet creation
  • Detect and support additional languages
  • Flag, organize, and prioritize documents to rapidly assess content based on criteria (for instance, latest or obsolete)
  • Detect near duplicates to eliminate redundancy
  • Collect file meta data such as file extension, file size, and last modified date to automatically create facets to help quickly separate the unnecessary content from the content that matters to your business
  • Tailor solutions for deeper insight and get tighter integration between LanguageWare® Resource Workbench and IBM Content Analytics, both standardized on Unstructured Information Management Architecture (UIMA)
  • Easily create, debug, and validate custom annotators in ICA tooling environment
  • Support for Representational State Transfer (REST) programming API to facilitate solution creation and integration into applications
  • With a click of a button, quickly generate Cognos Business Intelligence reports
  • Gain support for Linux® on System z® to analyze documents residing on file shares, in databases, or Internet web pages

Content is often spread across repositories in an organization between shared drives and folders, SharePoint, Lotus®, and Livelink. Finding the content that matters to a knowledge worker can be difficult with the wrong search solution, and nearly impossible without any search capabilities. Compounding the difficulties is the business requirement to ensure the security of information and scalability of the solution. IBM OmniFind Enterprise Edition V9.1 helps users find content by providing a customizable scalable platform for enterprise search with robust security capabilities users can configure to ensure that only the content a user is allowed to view is shown in search results pages.

IBM OmniFind Enterprise Edition provides connectors to enterprise repositories to support the index aggregation of content across structured and unstructured repositories, along with robust APIs for embedding search components as ingredients in composite applications, portals, or mashups allowing businesses to leverage their information across corporate interfaces.

Knowledge driven search enables organizations to:

  • Accelerate time to knowledge
  • Provide greater accuracy
  • Deliver business context with enterprise search

IBM OmniFind Enterprise Edition V9.1 is designed to enable the five pillars of knowledge driven search:

  • Dynamic - Delivers complete dynamic facet capabilities, type-ahead search, real-time content alerting, and is reactive to search-led content exploration.
  • Tailorable - Delivers business adjustable relevancy and standardization to UIMA.
  • Supportable - Delivers search on 20 plus platforms, connects to 30 plus repositories.
  • Secure - Delivers enforced security across content repositories.
  • Scalable - Lucene-based index provides enterprise level scalability.

Charge metrics definitions

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

PVU is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. The number of PVU entitlements required is based on the processor technology (defined within the PVU Table by processor value, brand, type, and model number at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/pvu_licensing_for_customers.html

and the number of processors made available to the program. IBM continues to define a processor, for the purpose of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. A dual-core processor chip, for example, has two processor cores.

Licensee can deploy the program using either full capacity licensing or virtualization capacity (sub-capacity) licensing according to the Passport Advantage Sub-Capacity Licensing Terms (refer to the webpage below). If using full capacity licensing, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores* in the physical hardware environment made available to or managed by the program, except for those servers from which the program has been permanently removed. If using virtualization capacity licensing, licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores made available to or managed by the program, as defined according to the Virtualization Capacity License Counting Rules at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/Counting_Software_licenses_using_specific_virtualization_technologies.html

* An activated processor core is a processor core that is available for use in a physical or virtual server, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor core can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions.

Notes:

  • Some programs may require licenses for the program and what is being managed. In that case, the following applies. In addition to the entitlements required for the program directly, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.
  • Some programs may be licensed on a managed basis only. In that case, the following applies: Instead of the entitlements required for the program directly, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.
  • A few programs on an exception basis may be licensed on a referenced basis. In that case, the following applies. Rather than obtaining entitlements for the activated processor cores available to the program, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the environment made available to the referenced program as if the program itself were executing everywhere the referenced program was executing, independent of the basis on which the referenced program is licensed.
  • Express® and workgroup programs may be licensed with maximum use terms. In that case, the following applies. The maximum authorized use terms and conditions for PVU licensed IBM express and middleware programs can be found in the IBM Express and Middleware Licensing Guide.

IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. For further information, consult the IBM Software Support Handbook found at

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Program technical support

Technical support of a program product version or release will be available for a minimum of five years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Maintenance is in effect. This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Maintenance also provides you with access to updates (modifications or fixes), releases, and versions of the program. You will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.

Money-back guarantee

For clarification, note that if for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

For clarification, note that for programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program.
