Secure Enterprise Search Uncovered

Guest Author

In case you missed this Larry Ellison announced Oracle

Secure Enterprise Search
at OpenWorld Tokyo last

night.

There are technical/business white papers, a

data sheet and a demo available at the indicated web site, but the most

important things to know are:

  • Search

    accuracy and user experience is comparable to that of Google. (I can

    personally attest to this as we are in the midst of UAT for future

    deployment on OTN/Oracle.com. SES rocks.)
  • Content can be

    secured at a source or even document level. Thus, if you don't have

    privs to view a certain document, or any documents from a certain

    source, you will not see results for those

    items.
  • This is a standalone

    product.
I'm really looking forward to seeing SES

on OTN.

    You and everybody everybody else! It would be nice to be able to locate an article or a forum thread with an OTN search engine instead of using Google's site specific search feature.
    By the way, I hope there are plans to port Metalink to this better search engine soon.

    I take it SES will replase Ultra Search, right?

    I honestly don't have any information about deployment on MetaLink, which is managed by Support.
    As for status vis-a-vis Ultrasearch, more info on that should be available at GA.

    Oracle SES will be released in Oracle's financial Q4 (Mar 1 - May 31.) It is expected to be available for developers to download it from OTN after the release.
    Ultra Search will continue to be available for now as an unsecure, basic search; however, it will not be the focus for feature enhancements. Oracle's flagship enterprise search product is SES, with the advantages of comprehensive security, high relevance/search-quality, and out-of-the-box easy operation over Ultra Search.
