Excalibur Offers Intranet Solution to FileNET Panagon

Excalibur Technologies Corp. Tuesday introduced a secure intranet solution by rolling out RetrievalWare for FileNET Corp.'s Panagon service.

Excalibur RetrievalWare for FileNET's Panagon Integrated Document Management (IDM) Document Services provides access to all information managed by Panagon as well as a single point of access to all of the organization's knowledge repositories.

The tool lets clients search for information in a variety of FileNET document repositories and provides customers with advanced ranking capabilities to allow searches to be reviewed based on relevance. Using the new system, workers spend less time looking for and re-creating stored knowledge, the firm said.

Excalibur RetrievalWare's search technology combines a full semantic network of 500,000 word meanings and 1.4 million word associations with the ability to recognize patterns in digital code and correct for misspellings and OCR (optical character recognition) errors.

In addition, RetrievalWare for Panagon features close integration with the Panagon security model and with the Panagon Web browser client to ensure that RetrievalWare will never allow a user to retrieve a document they are not able to view when working inside Panagon.

The FileNET Panagon product is suited to support compliance issues, product research and development, and sales and marketing applications. Customers will benefit from the solution's ability to search research and development archives to identify earlier projects and records that are useful in new projects.

Excalibur (EXCA) will also include beta support for Panagon 2000, which it plans to deliver in Q1 2000.

"The combination of FileNET's Panagon IDMDS and Excalibur RetrievalWare creates a best-of-breed e-content management and knowledge retrieval solution that excels in our customer's large, distributed multi-server infrastructures," said Fred Monjazeb, vice president, world wide channel sales and marketing at FileNET.
