Project: Advanced search capabilities

Agency: The Labor Department's Employment and Training Administration


* Autonomy Corp. plc, Cambridge, U.K.

* Information Strategies Inc., Washington


The Employment and Training Administration wanted to offer advanced search capabilities for both its constituents and its employees.



The agency houses more than 1.2

million documents. Although some of them are Web pages and easily searchable, others are in formats that are more difficult to index, such as PowerPoint.


Autonomy's search solution can index documents in more than 300 formats, so it can

provide the necessary tools for searching through multiple types of files.



The public has more advanced capabilities to

find documents by searching rather than by navigating through multiple directories. Employees can cut the number of searches they perform in a day by using an integrated search engine to query several formats at once.
