Leistungsstarke Suchfunktion für die Versionsmanagement- und Collaboration-Plattform von Perforce

P4Search macht es Unternehmen leicht, hunderte von Terabyte an geistigem Eigentum zu durchforsten

Highlights:

  • P4Search ermöglicht eine inhaltsbasierte Suche über alle in Perforce abgelegten Dateien - von komplexen Quellcode-Dateien über Microsoft-Office-Dokumente und audio-visuelle Bibliotheken bis hin zu Datei-Metadaten - unabhängig davon, wie der Inhalt innerhalb einer Datei strukturiert ist
  • P4Search ist als Open-Source-Tool erhältlich und kann leicht an individuelle Bedürfnisse angepasst sowie in vorhandene Umgebungen integriert werden

Wokingham, UK, 8. Juli 2014 - Perforce Software veröffentlicht „P4Search", ein umfassendes Tool, das den gesamten Content innerhalb der Versionsmanagement-Engine des Unternehmens, P4D, durchsuchen kann. Einige der weltweit innovativsten Unternehmen vertrauen auf P4D, unter anderem Salesforce.com, NVIDIA und Pixar. Die Lösung speichert das wertvolle geistige Eigentum eines Unternehmens - Quellcode, Designvorlagen, Rechtsdokumente, Bilder und viele andere Assets. P4Search ist ein hochgradig individuell anpassbares Tool, das entweder als Standalone-Service oder als integrierte Funktion innerhalb der Perforce-Umgebung des Kunden zur Verfügung steht.

Innovative Suchfunktionalität
P4Search setzt auf der SolrTM-Technologie von Apache Lucene auf und ermöglicht es Anwendern, ihr gesamtes P4D-Repository - nicht selten aus dutzenden verschiedener Dateitypen und einem Volumen im Terabyte-Bereich bestehend - in Echtzeit zu durchsuchen und so Dateien zu finden, die beliebige Schlüsselwörter, Textstrings oder gewünschte Phrasen enthalten. Zum Beispiel kann es für einen Anwender wichtig sein, einen Codeabschnitt zu finden, der eine spezifische Fehlernachricht hervorruft, wiederverwendbare Bibliotheken aus einem älteren Projekt oder Videoaufzeichnungen eines Tutorials.

P4Search ist mit den auf Großunternehmen ausgelegten Sicherheitsstandards von Perforce konform. Diese stellen sicher, dass die vorkonfigurierten Datenschutz-Richtlinien der Unternehmens-IT eingehalten werden. Aus diesem Grund stellt P4Search nur die Suchergebnisse dar, für deren Zugriff der einzelne Anwender autorisiert ist. Unternehmen können die Suchergebnisse zudem in ihre eigenentwickelten Applikationen einbetten, mithilfe der vollständig dokumentierten und mit dem Programmierparadigma „REST" („Representational State Transfer") konformen Programmierschnittstellen (APIs), die mit P4Search ausgeliefert werden.

Erweiterte Sucheinstellungen beinhalten die Beschränkung der Suche auf spezifische Speicherdepots oder Depot-Pfade, die Auswahl des oder der Benutzer, die ein Asset erstellt oder zuletzt bearbeitet haben, sowie den Zeitpunkt, an dem ein Element erstellt wurde. P4Search kann so eingestellt werden, dass die Lösung entweder alle Versionen einer Datei durchsucht oder nur die aktuellste, bestimmte Datentypen ignoriert, nur Metadaten indexiert oder nach weiteren, benutzerdefinierten Kriterien vorgeht. Anwender, welche die Suchfunktion besonders intensiv nutzen, können zudem den „Custom Query Syntax for Lucence Indexes" von Solr verwenden, um ihre Suche nach Bedarf anzupassen.

Als Open-Source-Tool verfügbar
Die Lösung P4Search ist von Perforce als Beitrag zur Open-Source-Community gedacht. Aus diesem Grund steht der zugehörige Quellcode ab sofort zum Download zur Verfügung.

„Die Speicherdepots von Perforce beherbergen in vielen Fällen äußerst wertvolles geistiges Eigentum. P4Search macht es Anwendern leicht, auf beliebige benötigte Daten in Sekundenschnelle zuzugreifen", erklärt Christopher Seiwald, Gründer und CEO von Perforce Software.

Perforce Software
Die Versionsmanagement-Lösungen von Perforce bilden die Basis für Continuous Delivery. Branchenführer wie Salesforce.com, SAP oder die New Yorker Börse vertrauen auf Perforce, um ihr wertvolles geistiges Eigentum zu verwalten. Die Perforce-Produkte helfen Teams beim gemeinsamen Arbeiten an wichtigen digitalen Assets einschließlich Softwarecode, Dokumenten, Multimedia-Inhalten, Tabellen, Bildern etc. Sie zeichnen sich insbesondere durch ihre Fähigkeit aus, große und verteilte Inhalte zu managen und dadurch die Produktivität zu erhöhen, Kosten zu senken sowie die Sicherheit und Compliance zu verbessern.

Things are being built upon cloud foundations to transform organizations. This CEO Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo, moderated by Roger Strukhoff, Cloud Expo and @ThingsExpo conference chair, will address the big issues involving these technologies and, more important, the results they will achieve. How important are public, private, and hybrid cloud to the enterprise? How does one define Big Data? And how is the IoT tying all this together?
The Internet of Things (IoT) is going to require a new way of thinking and of developing software for speed, security and innovation. This requires IT leaders to balance business as usual while anticipating for the next market and technology trends. Cloud provides the right IT asset portfolio to help today’s IT leaders manage the old and prepare for the new. Today the cloud conversation is evolving from private and public to hybrid. This session will provide use cases and insights to reinforce the value of the network in helping organizations to maximize their company’s cloud experience.
TechCrunch reported that "Berlin-based relayr, maker of the WunderBar, an Internet of Things (IoT) hardware dev kit which resembles a chunky chocolate bar, has closed a $2.3 million seed round, from unnamed U.S. and Switzerland-based investors. The startup had previously raised a €250,000 friend and family round, and had been on track to close a €500,000 seed earlier this year — but received a higher funding offer from a different set of investors, which is the $2.3M round it’s reporting."
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. Over the summer Gartner released its much anticipated annual Hype Cycle report and the big news is that Internet of Things has now replaced Big Data as the most hyped technology. Indeed, we're hearing more and more about this fascinating new technological paradigm. Every other IT news item seems to be about IoT and its implications on the future of digital busines...

This Internet of Nouns trend is still in the early stages and many of our already connected gadgets do provide human benefits over the typical infotainment. Internet of Things or IoT. You know, where everyday objects have software, chips, and sensors to capture data and report back. Household items like refrigerators, toilets and thermostats along with clothing, cars and soon, the entire home will be connected. Many of these devices provide actionable data - or just fun entertainment - so people can make decisions about whatever is being monitored. It can also help save lives.
