A message from the Editor

Welcome to the November issue of the ISYS Update email newsletter -- we hope you find plenty of interesting stories and information in this edition. If you voted in last issue's survey, you can see the results here, which show that people really do save a lot of time time using ISYS. We're also proud to announce in this issue that ISYS has been chosen to power the australia.com website, which provides information to thousands of visitors to Australia every year.

 

Finally - we've launched a new website, so please let us know what you think.


Gulf Coast HIDTA Selects ISYS Search Software for Anti-drug Intelligence Team

With jurisdiction over 20 counties in Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi, the Gulf Coast HIDTA's charter is to measurably reduce both the impact of Gulf Coast drug trafficking on the rest of the United States, as well as violent drug trafficking within its three-state area. Critical to success in this mission are its team of intelligence professionals and their ability to access, analyze and act on information that resides across multiple internal sources. The Gulf Coast HIDTA selected ISYS:desktop to provide this functionality.

Case study: australia.com

   

Australia's new tourism portal australia.com is a one-stop shop for tourists seeking information on Australian destinations. The site is packed with information on places to go and things to do, and includes a range of suggested itineraries to help visitors plan their trip to Australia.

 

ISYS was chosen to provide the customized search tool on the website; it enables visitors to conduct general searches as well as searches within specific categories, such as 'accommodation' or 'things to do'.

Spotlight:

In our last survey, we asked, "How much time does ISYS save you each week?" 206 people voted in the survey, and their responses are shown in this chart.

 

Over half of the respondents said ISYS saved them more than 5 hours per week!

Tech Tips: Displaying documents in native 'What You See is What You Get' format.

When opening results in ISYS:query you have the option of viewing the documents almost exactly as they would have looked if you had opened them in their native application - with the added bonus of having your search hits highlighted. Find out how.

Tech Tips: Excluding sections of a website from the ISYS:spider index.

ISYS:spider is a powerful tool which extends the functionality of ISYS to allow indexing of external websites. These can then be searched by ISYS:desktop or ISYS:web and included in the search results along with other data.

 

Rather than spidering a whole website with ISYS:spider, you may wish to exclude certain parts of the site which are not relevant and may take up valuable disk space or indexing time. Find out how.

He gives each of his 3 daughters a pack of flower seeds and tells them that the one who grows the most beautiful flowers from these seeds will have his throne. Six months pass and the king checks the flowers. The first 2 had beautiful flower beds while the last child had nothing in his plot but weeds and no flowers. Yet, the king chose this child to have the throne. Why?
