  • Highly secure crawling, indexing, and searching
  • A simple, intuitive search interface leading to an excellent user-experience
  • Excellent search quality, with the most relevant items for a query shown first, even when the query spans diverse public or private data sources
  • Analytics on search results and understanding of usage patterns
  • Sub-second query performance
  • Ease of administration and maintenance leveraging your existing IT expertise

What's New?

SES 11.1.2, the first GA release of SES 11 is now available for download. The many highlights of SES 11g include:

  • A quantum leap in performance and scalability for crawled and near real time search. SES 11g searches 10x more data with a single SES instance, at the same license cost, without impacting search query performance. It also offers fast ingest by defragmenting the search engine index mostly automatically; this allows for updating the search engine index fast enough to keep up with high churn applications like mail or news feeds
  • A UI mechanism based on the popular Freemarker templating language that greatly simplifies customizations to the SES search application
  • New connectivity options to Oracle Applications (EBusiness Suite, Siebel), Web Center, and Fusion Middleware
  • New document filters, especially for MS Office 2007 and SUN Star Office
  • Connector updates for Documentum, Sharepoint, and NTFS
  • A new Admin API with command line abilities
  • Windows Native Authentication, replacing the previous applet-based approach
