The Goldfire API allows an application to programmatically mine answers from diverse internal and external Big Data making it actionable, connecting users to the people, expertise, information, and technology trends so that collaboration and productivity are improved and decision making is more informed, enabling companies to deliver superior, competitively differentiated products – in less time and at less cost.
Unlike traditional keyword or metadata search capabilities that are suited to merely locating documents, Goldfire delivers highly relevant and precise answers found within documents to the day-to-day questions of product teams, in the context of the problems they are trying to solve. Results are categorized and presented in a form that efficiently reveals the information that is essential to making informed decisions about product and process designs.
Goldfire’s sophisticated natural language engine supports English, German, French, Japanese and Chinese queries and content and includes unique simultaneous cross-language queries and results summarization – a critical benefit as both content and global product communications are often multi-lingual. Within the corporation, Goldfire can index hundreds of document types housed in numerous disparate repositories and find answers buried on personal or shared drives and in emails, corporate repositories, and document management systems.
