PerkinElmer has launched its Search Genius application, a solution designed for the Microsoft SharePoint platform that provides researchers with a single software system to search, save and share unstructured data stored throughout their organisation. It enables researchers to use both text and structure searches of reports and technical documents stored using the SharePoint framework and PerkinElmer’s E-Notebook system, as well as text searches of the internet.
Broader access to previously difficult-to-access data enables greater and more holistic visibility to organisation-wide information resources, and scientists can also save their search results and easily create links and annotations that document their ideas and facilitate collaboration. In addition, the Search Genius platform utilises Microsoft’s FAST Search Server 2010 to create an out-of-the-box solution for researchers that is not separated and isolated from other applications.
