IDMS Develops Translator Add-On to dtSearch Desktop/Network/Web, Enabling Display of Original (source) and Translated (target) Texts Side-By-Side with Highlighted Hits

Using the dtSearch document filters and searching, the solution enables instant searching (with over 25 search options) of terabytes of a wide range of translated offline and online data

IDM Solutions (IDMS) is a leader in information management and translation solutions. dtSearch specializes in enterprise and developer text retrieval software and document filters. Together the companies announce an IDMS translation add-on to some of dtSearch’s enterprise-ready "off the shelf" products — Desktop/Network with Spider and dtSearch Web with Spider.

dtSearch Desktop/Network and dtSearch Web can instantly search terabytes of data consisting of a wide range of document types, emails and attachments, and web-ready data. These products provide over 25 search options, including special forensics options. The products further support all Unicode-based international languages, both in terms of searching and in terms of retrieved document and other data display with highlighted hits.

What dtSearch Desktop/Network and dtSearch Web are not set up for, however, is to "pair" original (source) and translated (target) versions of the full document and display them side-by-side with highlighted hits. That is where the IDMS solution comes in.

"We picked dtSearch for our customers because search query and results loading were instantaneous," explains Philippe Leonhart of IDMS. “Particularly as Canada is a bilingual nation, side-by-side retrieval of original and translated texts can also be helpful in search results review. For example, a major Canadian financial institution elected to use dtSearch Web with our translation add-ons. Now every day they wonder ‘how did we manage before?’”

By adding an option for customizable document pair detection, IDMS enabled this additional bilingual display feature.  In fact, the IDMS pairing engine can not only simultaneously display the source and target (translated) documents, it can display them aligned on paragraph boundaries, with hits highlighted in both documents.

"Both IDMS and dtSearch bring to the table extensive experience working with large multinational companies and other international organizations," says Nadia Beresford of RCC Consulting, which resells the dtSearch product line in Canada. "The new IDMS solution will be a major boon to translators and other enterprises that operate in a multilingual environment."

"This is a very exciting add-on for many dtSearch customers," adds David Thede, president, dtSearch Corp. "I suspect that that the IDMS solution will be quite helpful to translators, international organizations, and other dtSearch customers working with multilingual texts."

Intraspexion’s Early Warning System to Identify Potential Litigation Risks Relies on the dtSearch® Engine

Bethesda, Maryland — October 27, 2016 — Intraspexion is a start-up company that is pioneering the use of “deep learning” algorithms to identify potential litigation risks. dtSearch is a leader in enterprise and developer text retrieval software and document filters. Together, the companies announce the initial release of Intraspexions’s application to scan an organization’s current email and other messaging data as an early warning system for spotting potential litigation risks.

“Intraspexion trains a deep learning algorithm to identify different types of potential litigation risks and provide an early warning to an in-house legal department,” says Nick Brestoff, founder and CEO of Intraspexion. “Our first use case is employment discrimination.”

“Using Deep Learning, our system surfaced one solid risk out of over 7,600 emails, which no one had to read and which is much less than one-tenth of one percent of the emails,” continues Mr. Brestoff.

For that reason, he noted, NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) accepted Intraspexion into its Inception Program.

“The use case is strong,” Mr. Brestoff adds. “Any organization can preserve net profit of a minimum of about $350,000 by identifying just one litigation risk early on, and addressing it before it turns into a lawsuit.”

For its email and attachment support — including multilevel nested email attachment support — Intraspexion chose the dtSearch Engine. dtSearch’s core developer product, the dtSearch Engine, instantly searches terabytes of text, including 25+ full-text and metadata-driven search options. The dtSearch Engine works with online and offline data, including a broad range of document and email types, website data and other databases.

F. Scott Barker, author of numerous database programming books, recipient of the Microsoft MVP Award, and a prolific dtSearch Engine third-party developer, has joined Intraspexion’s team as a co-founder. “For the first time in decades, I joined a startup team because this is a killer app for Deep Learning,” says Mr Barker. “When combined with the power of dtSearch, Intraspexion is a dream come true for corporate and governmental users. Who doesn’t want less litigation?”

IntaForensics’ Lima Case Management System Embeds the dtSearch® Engine for Instant Searching Across Forensics Case Materials

IntaForensics is a leading provider of digital forensics services and software to government and commercial clients in the UK. Headquartered in Maryland, dtSearch specializes in enterprise and developer text retrieval software and document filters. Together the companies announce the addition of the dtSearch Engine to the IntaForensics’ Lima Case Management System.

The Lima Forensic Case Management family of products includes the standalone Personal edition, as well as Laboratory, Enterprise and soon to be released full forensic Law Enforcement versions – which now incorporate the powerful dtSearch platform. All of the applications provide a complete workflow solution and end-to-end case management from collection of exhibits to final case dispatch. Features of this full-service platform include exhibit tracking, extensive logging options, a comprehensive timeline of all case-related activity and work allocation, as well as advanced features designed for supporting laboratory accreditation.

For full-text searching inside the Lima Case Management system, IntaForensics chose to embed the dtSearch Engine. dtSearch’s core developer product, the dtSearch Engine, instantly searches terabytes of text, including 25+ full-text and metadata-driven search options. The dtSearch Engine works with online and offline data, including emails and attachments, a broad range of document types, website data and other databases.

“We chose the dtSearch Engine to integrate in the Lima Case Management system because of its ability to instantly find keyword, or, combination keyword hits across all of our uploaded documents which are part of our Lima solution,” said Andrew Frowen, CEO, IntaForensics. “The ability to, at the click of a button, find all hits for a specific term has saved vast amounts of time for all Lima users at IntaForensics and within organizations across the globe. The result has meant that Lab Managers, examiners and any interested party can instantly perform a system search for any keyword and establish links to cases that otherwise, may have gone unnoticed. Since adding the dtSearch Engine, our customers have said this is a great addition to an already great solution, it is really helping with speeding up the time concerned with general use and information searching.”

Contegra Adds “Autosuggest Search Assistant” and “Find Related” Options to its Kaleido User Interface Built for the dtSearch® Engine API

dtSearch is a leader in enterprise and developer text retrieval software and document filters. Contegra Systems is a major provider of custom search development services for the dtSearch Engine developer market. Together the companies announce a new version of Contegra’s Kaleido user interface built around the dtSearch Engine SDK. The new features work alongside Kaleido’s existing faceted search user interface built on top of the dtSearch Engine faceted searching developer API.

dtSearch’s core product for developers, the dtSearch Engine offers the ability to instantly search terabytes of text, including 25+ full-text and metadata-driven search options. The dtSearch Engine works with online and offline data, including emails and attachments, a broad range of document types, website data and other databases. The dtSearch Engine comes in multiple versions spanning different operating systems.

Contegra developed its Kaleido interface after years of custom development work for dtSearch Engine customers, particularly those working with very large data sets covering millions of overlapping technical specifications. Kaleido assists organizations that without fully delving into the dtSearch Engine’s C++, Java and .NET APIs want to embed dtSearch Engine functionality in text-rich data applications.

The new “autosuggest search assistant” option lets the end-user hone in on key concepts while entering a search request. For example, type pol in the 400,000 news articles in the Kaleido online demo at kaleidosearch.com/hldemo, and the suggestion box offers 14 topic suggestions, ranging from foreign policy to polar regions.

Rob Wiesenberg, president, Contegra Systems, explains how this feature works: “Prior to indexing with the dtSearch Engine, Kaleido extracts key concepts from each document or database row. Kaleido then ranks all key concepts by relevance, and adds this relevancy-ranked data ‘on the fly’ while indexing with the dtSearch Engine.”

The new “find related” option lets users enter up to 1,000 words of text and find similar documents. “We first parse the block of text into component concepts, which we can then display as a conceptual word cloud,” adds Mr. Wiesenberg. “We then invoke the dtSearch Engine to query for similar documents across the data set.”

Both new options are available along with Kaleido’s existing faceted search wrapper around the dtSearch Engine faceted search developer APIs, letting end users drill down through technical specification and other metadata “facets” to hone in on the right data. An accompanying Contegra web server-running solution enables hit-highlighting in PDFs without requiring special software installation by the end-user.

Epi-Search, A Free Academic Resource, Lets Researchers Enter Up to 10,000 Words of Text and, Using a dtSearch® Engine API, Find “More Like This” Across the ISCE Library
Contegra Systems performed the dtSearch Engine integration, leveraging the library’s SQL metadata along with the original book text to find conceptually similar items

Epi-Search provides no-charge search access to the Institute for the Study of Coherence and Emergence (ISCE) library. dtSearch is a leader in enterprise and developer text retrieval software and document filters. Contegra Systems is a major provider of custom development implementations for the dtSearch Engine market, including precision faceted search and other advanced data tagging and classification options.

Together, these organizations announce a new approach to academic research. “Epi-Search outperforms traditional searching algorithms because it is able to make use of key concepts,” explains Michael Lissack, Executive Director and ISCE Professor of Meaning in Organizations.

Contegra Systems did the development work for this site. “Epi-Search allows academic researchers to enter a block of text as a query,” says Rob Wiesenberg, president, Contegra Systems. “The first step is to parse that text into its component concepts. We generate and present a conceptual word cloud to the user shedding light on the most valuable terms.”

“We then invoke the dtSearch Engine to query for ‘more like this’ across the library’s SQL metadata and the full-text of the books themselves,” adds Mr. Wiesenberg. “The dtSearch Engine already offers natural language vector-space analysis, including an option for differential ranking of SQL metadata versus full-text content, so this part was easy.” Finally, Epi-Search takes the parsed query and lets users automatically submit it to other library sites.

Fulton History’s 34 Million Page Online Newspaper Archive Adds Contegra’s Server-Side PDF Hit Highlighter to dtSearch® Instant Searching for Immediate Historical Access
Contegra’s product lets web users (with only a browser installed) enter a dtSearch request and jump right to highlighted hits superimposed on the original newspaper page image


Fulton History offers an unparalleled historical newspaper collection extending back to the 18th Century. dtSearch is a leader in enterprise and developer text retrieval software and document filters. Contegra Systems has decades of data integration experience and is a major provider of custom development implementations for the dtSearch Engine market, including precision faceted search and other advanced data classification.

With the new installation, Fulton History visitors can not only instantly search 34 million newspaper pages, but also automatically hone in on the exact place on the original newspaper image that contains the search term. “With about a million visitors a month to FultonHistory.com, it is critical that the site runs smoothly,” says Tom Tryniski, Fulton History’s Founder. “Adding Contegra’s highlighter to dtSearch makes the whole user experience run that much more seamlessly.”

One key issue with newspaper scanning is the possibility of optical character recognition (OCR) errors. A smudge on an old newspaper might result in an OCR program resolving “Titamic”’ as “Titanic.” The dtSearch Engine includes its own fuzzy searching algorithm which lets web visitors adjust search fuzziness to sift through OCR and other typographical errors. For example, with a fuzziness level of 3, a search for “Titanic” would find not only “Titanic” but also “Titamic.” With a fuzziness level of 4, a search for “Titanic” would find “Titanic,” “Titamic” and “Titomic.”

On the Fulton History site, dtSearch’s fuzziness algorithm also extends to the Contegra application’s highlighting of PDF hits. Adds Mr. Tryniski: “Because of the potential for OCR errors when scanning old newspapers, dtSearch’s fuzzy searching is really important.” The Fulton History site makes available other dtSearch search options as well, including stemming, phonic and concept / thesaurus searching.

directEDGAR SEC Edgar Database Research Platform Now Embeds The dtSearch® Engine for Enhanced Search and Retrieval

AcademicEDGAR+ is the creator of the SEC Edgar database research application directEDGAR. AppsPlus offers software development and consultancy with a specialty in data-intensive programming. dtSearch is a leading provider of enterprise and developer text retrieval software and document filters. Together, these companies announce the integration of the dtSearch Engine into the latest version of the directEDGAR Search, Extraction & Normalization Engine.

For almost a decade, industry analysts and academic researchers have relied on directEDGAR to identify, extract and normalize content from the millions upon millions of corporate filings made through the SEC’s EDGAR system. As the number of EDGAR filings grows ever larger, directEDGAR needed to upgrade its embedded search engine.

“Advanced search is critical when researchers need to carefully select relevant documents from a population of documents that well exceeds 40 million,” says Dr. Kealey, associate professor of accounting at the University of Nebraska at Omaha and CEO of AcademicEDGAR. “Our team did a deep dive into all of the search technologies in the market and kept coming back to the incredible and unique feature set offered by the dtSearch Engine.”

“We have over two terabytes of SEC filings and there was no other vendor whose offering allowed immediate access to any document in the results set no matter how many documents are returned.” Dr. Kealey also notes that search granularity is critically important, and dtSearch's unique operators extend far beyond the standard Boolean operators. “With the full set of dtSearch operators, along with our unique document meta tags that are indexed with the dtSearch Engine, our clients are going to be able to take a much more nuanced approach to defining their search set.”

To complete the implementation, AcademicEDGAR+ chose AppsPlus. AppsPlus specializes in data-rich development projects, and has a 15-year track record of dtSearch Engine custom development projects for clients ranging from non-profits to multibillion dollar IT and telecom companies as well as government organizations like the Department of Defense.

AppsPlus worked with AcademicEDGAR+ to create a next generation version of directEDGAR. “Taking advantage of the dtSearch Engine’s .NETs threading capabilities and background services, we were able to come up with a responsive search application greatly increasing performance over prior versions of the directEDGAR toolset,” says F. Scott Barker of AppsPlus.

But search is just one step in the directEDGAR product. After search, the product also offers extraction of key content, followed by normalization. “Partnering with dtSearch and AppsPlus allows us to focus on our real competency which is adding extraction and normalization features that make it easy for researchers to not only find the relevant documents but convert the content in the documents into data for their research,” adds Dr. Kealey.

dtSearch products can instantly search terabytes of text, including 25+ full-text and metadata hit-highlighted search features. dtSearch’s proprietary document filters support a wide range of document types, emails and attachments, databases and other online data.

CloudNine™ Engages dtSearch® Engine for Streamlined SaaS-Hosted eDiscovery
Over 50 of the top 250 law firms are customers of the highly scalable CloudNine solution


CloudNine, eDiscovery provider to over 20% of top law firms, and dtSearch, a leader in enterprise and developer text retrieval products for instantly searching terabytes of text across a wide variety of data types, announce the integration of the dtSearch Engine into CloudNine’s SaaS-hosted eDiscovery platform.

When you need to review large volumes of electronically stored information (ESI) under tight litigation deadlines, choosing the right technology is vital. For CloudNine, a Houston-based electronic discovery software and service provider, one of the key components of that technology is dtSearch, the text-retrieval search engine that CloudNine has integrated into its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) review platform.

“With information volume in most organizations doubling about every two years, our clients have more data than ever to cull quickly for litigation review,” stated Doug Austin, Vice President of Professional Services at CloudNine. “Our clients are able to do so through the advanced searching and culling capabilities within our litigation review platform and dtSearch is a key component of that advanced searching and culling.”

“Before we switched to dtSearch, we had to rely on the full-text indexing and retrieval capabilities of the database management system (DBMS) that we were using,” noted Bill David, Chief Technology Officer at CloudNine, who oversees software development for the company. “By moving to dtSearch, we were not only able to take advantage of additional advanced searching capabilities, but we were also able to become DBMS independent.”

CloudNine has taken advantage of dtSearch’s fast indexing and retrieval capabilities to enable its clients to manage very large document collections. “We have hosted single data collections in the terabytes,” remarked Austin. “By leveraging the power of dtSearch in our platform, our clients can retrieve most result sets in just a few seconds, even in our largest collections.”

“The programmatic control that dtSearch gives us over the source files makes it easier to manage terabytes of data and still deliver search results fast,” added David. “Because of that, many of our clients process and load their entire eDiscovery data collection via our automated Discovery Client application, knowing that our search engine will quickly index their text and enable them to quickly cull the data within our platform.”

“CloudNine’s ease of use and searching flexibility are key reasons that we have used it on several cases within our firm,” stated Katherine Gonyea, Attorney at Dow, Golub, Remels & Beverly, LLP. “Even with cases as large as over 500,000 documents and over 1.8 million pages, the software returns search results in seconds!”

“In addition to its speed, our clients love the robustness of the search engine,” added Austin. “The ability to perform complex searches that include grouping of terms, phrases, proximity, fuzzy, stemming and synonyms which is integrated into CloudNine via the dtSearch Engine enables our clients to strike the best balance possible between recall and precision in their searches.”

For optimal compliance management, GFI Archiver archives emails and files in their original state – in a central, tamper-proof store – to help with compliance, e-discovery and internal investigations.

Features of GFI Archiver include: MailInsights reports to help identify potential security breaches, legal risks and productivity issues by extracting key data from email archives; Data Leakage Detection Reports to identify emails containing sensitive information; and Communications Flow Reports depicting the flow of communications across the business.

“GFI Archiver offers extra control, choice and flexibility over how you manage and access your company’s most important source of information – your archive history,” explains GFI. “Archiving is a better solution than any backup service since users can search for the items themselves.”

For text searching within GFI Archiver, GFI chose the dtSearch Engine for Win & .NET. “dtSearch allows our customers to instantly retrieve information from terabytes of data, across all popular file types. The dtSearch APIs were ideal for our engineering team to tightly integrate into our product.”
