Pureinsights Discovery Platform Version 1.7 Released

Pureinsights Discovery Platform Version 1.7 Released

An overview of exciting updates since Version 1.0 was released last year.

Last year, Pureinsights announced the release of the Pureinsights Discovery Platform™ (PDP) version 1.0. PDP is Technology Platform that our consultants use when developing search applications for our customers.  PDP provides many complementary capabilities to open-source search engines including:

  • An ingestion framework with connectors to retrieve different types of content (structured or unstructured) from different sources.
  • Content processing capabilities that enrich content metadata to improve content findability and search results.
  • A staging repository that serves as an intermediate storage and supports rapid processing and indexing.
  • Hydrators that publish content to leading open-source search engines and knowledge graphs.
  • A Discovery API that facilitates the integration of search with libraries and services that offer powerful AI and NLP capabilities.
  • A Search UI that provides an interface that can be customized to individual customer needs.

There have been several new releases of PDP since version 1.0, and if you are a PDP customer, you receive detailed information regarding each release in our Release Notes and announcements.  But we thought it would be helpful to highlight some of the key features in PDP that have been added since the inaugural release, from Versions 1.1 to 1.7.
