DAF is a complete solution enhancing the business value of the information within your organization. DAF delivers access and collaboration through industry-leading, scalable search technology combining text, visual and field search on a secure, need to know basis.
DAF is specifically designed to administer, index and retrieve massive amounts of structured and unstructured content in disparate data sources through its easy to use web based interfaces.
Reduces cost of ownership. DAF is the most cost-effective solution on the market today in terms of price versus performance. It lowers IT expenses by reducing infrastructure costs and eliminating many burdensome system and database administration tasks and licenses. You find more and spend less while accessing deep, valuable information on demand.
Protects investments in current IT resources. DAF complements rather than replaces your current IT systems. It integrates smoothly with commonly used databases, such as Oracle, IBM DB2 Universal Database (UDB), and Microsoft Sequel Server providing a search bandwidth and functionality not available from these products. Additionally, DAF search enables existing applications, using a standard XML file, providing faster access to data while minimizing the impact to the application.
Provides a built-in hardware technology growth path. DAF is independent from technology changes by working with new servers and storage devices dynamically as they become available. With DAF, applications will always benefit from the best and most current storage technologies.
Enables new customer insight and business model development. DAF increases the value of existing IT applications and enables the deployment of new ones that were previously deemed cost-prohibitive. This means you can make better decisions (1) based on access to more online data, (2) based on innovative ways of using that data to promote current and new business objectives, (3) by providing one common interface to search all your information content and (4) by providing a platform for preserving information and increasing the performance of your production systems.
