DBiT Adds dtSearch to Custom Web and CD-Based Solutions for the European Parliament

“We successfully used dtSearch on a wide variety of input and output formats, including HTML, XML, and PDF. dtSearch's multilingual support was key for the European Parliament project. And dtSearch's categorization support was essential as well.”

“We used XML as the underlying database solution to integrate dtSearch full-text and meta searching. The result is highly-precision searching for end-users accessing the European Parliament data.”
The European Parliament covers approximately 375 million citizens in 15 countries. The Minutes of Proceedings and Report of Proceedings of the European Parliament have to reach a wide audience, in many languages. The European Parliament tasked DBiT to synthesize these reports, and then output the data both to the Web and to CD, all in instantly searchable, multilingual format.

For providing search access to this data, DBiT chose the dtSearch Text Retrieval Engine. “For the European Parliament, we successfully used dtSearch on a wide variety of input and output formats, including HTML, XML, and PDF,” said Marc-Olivier Lifrange, Commercial Manager, DBiT. ”dtSearch's multilingual support was key for the European Parliament project. And dtSearch's categorization support was essential as well.”

DBiT's Web site explains in more detail what such categorization generally entails from an information management standpoint: “Our categorisation tool automatically includes all the internal and external information on the basis of your own classification system (taxonomies). Therefore, whatever the source of a document, it will be analysed and classed automatically using a common logic defined by your organisation. The automatic categorisation works in parallel with the document distribution. It provides an additional field of research.”

DBiT integrated categorization relevant to the European Parliament's document collections with the dtSearch Engine's full-text searching. “We used XML as the underlying database solution to integrate dtSearch full-text and meta searching,” explained Mr. Lifrange. “The result is highly-precision searching for end-users accessing the European Parliament data, both across the Web and from CD.”

Part of the Groupe De Boeck, DBiT's specializes in Web-based and other content management and streamlined e-publication in multilingual environments. DBiT sells out-of-the box knowledge management applications, including automatic classification systems or taxonomies, data mining and text retrieval. DBiT also provides a wide range of custom development services.
