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.
