End users gain virtually instant access to search results via a common interface and can take action immediately Mobile Client from within the X1 interface. Local and remote end users gain unified search results of multiple enterprise content repositories and can take action on those results. X1 indexes content on the server side as well as the user’s own email on the desktop and federates search results. X1 Enterprise Server Cluster • Connector Engine • Index Engine • Federation Engine • System Management Engine Other Third-Party Data Browser Client GET RESULTS FOR THE ORGANIZATION AND END USERS X1 ENTERPRISE SERVER COMPONENTS Organizations that rely on significant investments in IT often need their employees to be fluent users of many different systems. They cannot realize the expected returns on these investments unless employees can find the right information within the right system at the right time. Unfortunately, the proliferation of systems and data has led to a more complex enterprise environment that makes information search ever more complex. The X1 Enterprise Server consists of multiple components that collectively deliver a unified, actionable search solution. These components can be configured, deployed and administered using the centralized X1 Cluster Manager. The organization’s capacity to collect data has scaled exponentially, but the employees’ ability to find that data has not. One recent study found that employees spend 11 hours a week* conducting searches within multiple systems, sometimes without effect. Remote users require equivalent search capabilities but face security and bandwidth limitations. Typical desktop search tools solve only part of the problem. They search local hard drives and email, but not packaged or custom applications or relational databases. • The X1 Index Engine indexes all the documents sent to it by the Connector Engine while simultaneously responding to queries from the Federation Engine. The X1 Enterprise Server improves productivity by providing unified, actionable search for internal and external end users in complex, heterogeneous environments. As the heart of the X1 Platform, the X1 Enterprise Server automatically and transparently indexes the content housed in multiple information repositories, federates search results, and delivers those results as quickly as the end user types. Users gain virtually instant access to search results via a common interface, then are empowered to take action immediately on those results. • The X1 System Management Engine silently manages system administration, remote installation, performance monitoring, logging and other tasks for all the other Enterprise Server components. Remote users can search using a Browser Client or Mobile Client. X1 supports and enhances your security policies by integrating with Windows ® Authentication. Available Content Connectors allow the X1 Enterprise Server to index and act on specific enterprise information systems. In addition, X1 Server SDKs and Client SDKs enable you to create custom content connectors and extend client actions, respectively, to meet your organization’s unique needs. • The X1 Connector Engine runs the X1 Content Connectors, which authenticate and connect the Server to key corporate data repositories, such as files, and email. • As the glue that binds the X1 Enterprise Server together, the X1 Federation Engine receives queries from X1 Clients (or other custom-built applications) and compiles the responses from all the Index Engines in a cluster. Through X1 Software Development Kits (below), developers can use the Federation Engine to embed the X1 Enterprise Server into their applications. X1 Cluster Manager “Dialing up” performance and capacity is as simple as drag-and-drop using the X1 Cluster Manager. Administrators can remotely configure and install each of the components in the X1 Enterprise Server and monitor the performance and activities of the entire cluster. They can quickly scale X1 to support even the largest enterprise deployments. For example, during peak demand, an administrator wants to provide more indexing capacity and performance without buying more hardware. To get data into X1 faster, he could add another Connector Engine using the drag-and-drop interface. To deliver faster query results, support more concurrent queries, and/or index more data, he could add more Index Engines. http://www.x1.com v060130 Interwoven WorkSite ©Copyright 2004-2006 X1 Technologies, Inc.

X1 Enterprise Server Contact us at: 1.866.918.3241 [email protected] Empowers, Embraces and Extends X1 Deployment Manager X1 Content Connectors The X1 Deployment Manager empowers the IT administrator to completely customize and deploy the X1 Enterprise Client across the network. The Deployment Manager works with existing software deployment processes and is compatible with Microsoft SMS, Windows Script Host and other popular enterprise deployment tools. Enterprise Clients can be deployed “silently” to minimize impact on end users. Content Connectors are client and server-side software modules that allow X1’s indexing engine to index and act on specific enterprise information systems. FEATURES AND BENEFITS Scalability and Performance X1 eliminates inherent barriers to highly-scalable, unified search by providing built-in tools that enable remote installation, remote management and real-time performance monitoring of each node in the cluster. Manage Data for Users • Content Connector for Files (client and server) provides access to 370 different types of document and data file formats that are fully indexed by the Enterprise Server. • Content Connector for Microsoft® Exchange and Outlook® (client and server) allows you to index email messages, attachments, calendar entries, tasks and contacts from Exchange systems. • Content Connector for Interwoven WorkSite™ (client and server) gives users powerful, unified access across multiple WorkSite repositories, email and documents. X1 Software Development Kits (SDKs) X1 changes as your needs evolve and user requirements become more sophisticated. Once X1 has been deployed, the Cluster Manager enables you to add or change saved searches, action buttons, and custom menu items appearing on the Enterprise Client, then centrally push out those modifications to any users at any time. X1 SDKs let users create customized client integrations and/or content connectors. The X1 Client SDK lets customers extend and customize the X1 Enterprise Client and integrate it with other Windows desktop applications. The X1 Server SDK lets customers extend the X1 Enterprise Server to index additional enterprise data sources such as a proprietary workflow system or a CRM system. Actionable Search Results The X1 Platform End users’ search results are displayed as fast as they type. Each result appears in its original format with search terms highlighted so users can decide immediately which item they want to access, or refine results on the fly by adding more search characters and terms. They can then act on search results without leaving X1. Enterprise-Level Network Security X1 Enterprise Edition maps to your organization’s existing Windows® network security permissions, ensuring that information is secure. • Lock down global Client settings appropriate to enterprise network environment. • Allow only authorized files, shares, or folders to be indexed. • Private network operation feature blocks off-network, “phone-home” traffic. Minimal IT Resources Required for Deployment and Maintenance A drag-and-drop interface shows a preview of available resources, enables dynamic configuration and simplifies remote installation of components. Remote management utilities, including a log viewer, graphical performance monitor and a cluster visualization tool ease complex administrative jobs and speed deployment. Flexible Purchasing Options Pricing is based on the number of seats and the number of server CPU’s needed, with no limit on the number of documents indexed. Buy additional server CPU units/licenses incrementally as your environment grows and enjoy faster payback. As you continue to deploy X1 across your enterprise, you maximize ROI and reduce TCO for your X1 installation. ADDITIONAL COMPONENTS X1 Enterprise Client The X1 Enterprise Client delivers the full power of unified, actionable search to the desktop, without impacting end users. X1 lets employees search 370 information formats and the most-used email clients, using common search characters and terms, keywords, or Boolean search.
