|Factiva, a Dow Jones/Reuters company, has announced the launch of Factiva
SearchModule, the second tool in Factiva Integration, a suite of solutions
for integrating Factiva's global content into intranets and portals. According
to the announcement, customers can integrate Factiva Search Module into
the layout of any existing Web-based corporate desktop. This gives them
access to the external news and internal information they need to make
informed business decisions, without ever leaving the application in which
they are working.
"Through research, we found that our customers want flexible solutions
so they can integrate Factiva's global content into their desktop applications,"
said Clare Hart, Factiva's president and CEO. "Factiva Search Module benefits
businesses by allowing our customers to search our content directly from
their intranet or portal."
Factiva Search Module is capable of sharing the same page and seamlessly
integrating with various portal and intranet applications, such as internal
databases, CRM systems, and e-mail. It's available in two versions: a Standard
Version based on HTML and a Custom Version based on open-systems and XML
tagging that allows users to simultaneously search internal content and
Factiva's global content.
As an integrated solution, users have access to all of Factiva's global
content, including a database of nearly 6,000 sources in 12 languages,
such as The Wall Street Journal; Le Monde; The Times of London; The South
China Morning Post; and Dow Jones, Reuters, and Associated Press news wires.
