QL2 and Traction Turn Data into Decisions

画像What happens when you combine the leader in unstructured data extraction with the leader in enterprise blog software? QL2 Software and Traction Software have joined together in a unique development partnership that makes data extracted from the deep Web by QL2's data extraction platform WebQL, available to users of Traction's TeamPage enterprise weblog solution for more effective and informed team decision-making.

WebQL seamlessly gathers difficult to reach unstructured data from online sources and integrates it into TeamPage's collaborative, secure blog workspaces.

Monitoring the Deep Web

Even the best search engines miss important Web content stored in databases and other sources that can't be indexed. WebQL from QL2 Software can monitor and gather targeted information from these sources buried in the billions of pages of the World Wide Web.

WebQL can monitor even password protected newswires, trade journals, websites and blogs. WebQL takes data extraction a step further by monitoring clinical trials, adverse events, legislation, pricing and other databases. WebQL can watch websites for changes and report the differences. WebQL may execute hundreds or thousands of queries in a given day, and provide only those results which match specified requirements. WebQL may run standing queries on a regular basis, or do one-off form driven queries launched right from the TeamPage interface from Traction Software.

Publishing, Categorization, and Swift Distribution

When WebQL finds a relevant content match or page change, it extracts and publishes the information to TeamPage with appropriate category tags from any of the project blogs. TeamPage's interface delivers the content swiftly and securely through easy to navigate date driven newspaper style front page and project news pages, an automated newsletter, and a best of breed dynamic RSS feed. Users can easily query TeamPage to view any cross-section of topics.

Content Collaboration

TeamPage allows social tagging to allow users to further categorize content. Users may also raise certain content to Alert status, weave commentary between paragraphs and write analysis or recommendations that links to the collected source. TeamPage enables true content collaboration and discussion in context.
