San Francisco, CA – May 5, 2008 – MuseGlobal, provider of award-winning content integration platforms worldwide, today announced a partnership with Adhere Solutions, a consulting company focused on designing, implementing and optimizing applications built on the Google Platform, to deliver the first federated search solution for the Google Search Appliance. Called the All Access Connector, the joint solution will extend the Google Search Appliance, enabling organizations to search hundreds of millions of pages of content from over 5,400 sources—including internal and external databases, repositories, subscription content sources, data feeds and web mining applications—all delivered seamlessly through the Google interface. With the All Access Connector, the concept of Universal Search—finding all relevant content through one search box—is a reality for the enterprise.

Enterprise search solutions are expensive and can be challenging to implement in a way that delivers comprehensive and actionable information to the users who need better access to the deep web. Though a cost-effective alternative, the Google Search Appliance relies on partners to federate third-party content sources and integrate the results into a standard interface. With the All Access Connector, MuseGlobal and Adhere Solutions have created Universal Search for the Google Search Appliance, effectively closing the federation gap between the Google Search Appliance and traditional enterprise search solutions. Once integrated into the Google Search Appliance, the All Access Connector enables enterprises to leverage MuseGlobal’s constantly expanding Source Factory of content sources to increase the depth and breadth of search results and facilitate real-time results analysis.

Features of the All Access Connector include:

  • Access to hundreds of millions of pages of content from over 5,400 sources, all through the Google interface.
  • Simple one-click entry to external sources with no additional log-in requirements through a powerful proxy server.
  • Non-stop and instantaneous, 24-hour content retrieval through automatic updates to connectors as changes take place to target sources.
  • A much lower cost than the manual acquisition and indexing of all desired sources.
  • Compliance with current authentication and security policies with a role-based search access model.
  • Pre-built and constantly monitored connectors that require no coding to implement.
  • Easy navigation of search results by source, subject, date and other meta-data categories.

"Adhere Solutions was founded by a team of search industry veterans with the vision of extending the capabilities of the Google Search Appliance and meeting the demand for associated professional services. We provide Google Enterprise customers with support throughout installation and configuration as well as applications built exclusively for the Google Search Appliance," said Erik Arnold, director, Adhere Solutions. "Through the partnership with MuseGlobal we will be able to offer our customers the first truly Universal Search capability—the All Access Connector."

"MuseGlobal is uniquely positioned to extend the power of the Google Search Appliance because we provide the industry’s most flexible technology for connecting disparate sources of content," said Kristina Bivins, president, MuseGlobal. "The All Access Connector—a yellow box designed to complement the Google Search Appliance—federates critical internal and external sources of content, delivering actionable information to the user through a single access point. Together with Adhere, we are increasing the power and usability of Google in the enterprise and giving organizations the ability to better monetize search."
