Siderean's Seamark Included in Oracle Secure Search Initiative.

Seamark Navigator Integrated with Oracle[R] Secure Enterprise Search 10g Enables Relational Navigation and Information Access

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Siderean Software, a pioneer in relational navigation solutions, today announced that the company is a participant in the Oracle Secure Search Initiative. Launched today by Oracle, the Secure Search Initiative allows leading software vendors like Siderean to partner with the company to develop a set of secure connectors that enable Oracle[R] Secure Enterprise Search 10g users to more easily access information from disparate enterprise data sources and applications. Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g users can now leverage Siderean's flagship Seamark Navigator relational navigation solution to illuminate previously unseen relationships across all formats of digital information to produce a 360 degree view of available information. By combining Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g with Seamark Navigator, organizations gain significantly enhanced visualization, scalability and security for their information access solutions.

Siderean provides an intuitive, easy to use navigational interface that enables users to quickly find information that is relevant to them. With Seamark Navigator, Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g users have a view of the full range of assets that are available for decisions, tasks and projects. Seamark for Oracle is the first comprehensive navigation solution specifically for Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g. The solution's contextual content view readily shows the entire scope of available information and incorporates precision search to help users quickly retrieve what they need. As a result, users are able to easily zoom in and out along different data paths to pinpoint specific query results, allowing context to drive action-oriented information.

"We're thrilled to be a part of Oracle's Secure Search Initiative and incorporate the value of Seamark Navigator to their Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g customers," said Michael Schmitt, CEO of Siderean. "Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g is a world-class platform, which becomes even more powerful through our Seamark relational navigation solution. Unlike traditional free-text search, which lacks the ability to offer context, Seamark for Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g does not require users to guess or assume what's available. Now Oracle users can seamlessly transition from a birds-eye view to a bugs-eye view of enterprise information, tumbling across results on previously impossible data paths. The end result is an accurate, user-friendly discovery process that will greatly enhance the accuracy of information access."

Seamark for Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g offers quick, easy implementation and administration. It operates as a web service, allowing existing or new Oracle search deployments to be quickly refined to give users an entirely new, insight-driven experience. Featuring a point-and-click administration interface, Seamark for Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g allows easy administration of the navigation experience from the Oracle interface. Additionally, the solution uses the Resource Description Framework (RDF) and Web Ontology Language (OWL) standards from the World-Wide Web Consortium, enabling a standards-based approach to providing 360 degree view of any concept regardless of the underlying information sources.

The Seamark relational navigation engine uses metadata facets to guide users to relevant content, generating unique views into the available assets based on a user's navigation. Item counts for each metadata facet, as well as the number and type of metadata facets displayed, are updated with each user click. Additional features for Seamark for Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g include:

* Relational Navigation: Seamark Navigator combines advanced navigation and search functions seamlessly. As users refine a search, Seamark dynamically displays additional navigation options, providing summaries of those items that best match the user's criteria;

* Navigation Administration: Seamlessly integrated into Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g's administration screens, navigation administration allows users to select facets to display, modify facet labels, and modify the number of facet suggestions to display;

* Controlled Vocabulary Administration: This allows users to add and remove terms from their controlled vocabulary, enter regular expressions, add synonyms, and more;

* Platform Support: Seamark Navigator is a pure Java application and supports all major enterprise hardware platforms and operating systems including Windows, Linux and Solaris; and

* Secure Infrastructure: The solution is native to the Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g environment, which is designed to meet the security requirements of large or small enterprises, allowing users to take advantage of Oracle's superior secure infrastructure.

Participation in Oracle's Secure Search Initiative will allow Siderean to decrease development costs while giving the company access to information and services such as APIs, documentation, guidelines, training and Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10g certifications.
