Abstract:
AltaVista Search products are being used by thousands of customers to find information scattered across their organizations' web servers, file servers, Domino servers and database applications. AltaVista Search v3.0 is now available. The first half of this session, which includes live demonstrations, will show you the new features and capabilities. Highlights include: new results categorization/data mining features; new database integration utilities; new language based querying using stemming, lexicons, proper name recognition and more. End user and search site administration viewpoints are both covered. You will also hear about the new hardware and software platforms this release supports. Internal operations, installation, sizing, search site configuration and customization issues are covered in the session's second half. We will use an active AltaVista powered search site to demonstrate capabilities and configuration issues.
