Technology & Hardware Partners

BrightPlanet

BrightPlanet’s Deep Harvester technology provides a robust framework to harvest and populate domain-specific content silos of data from 1) the conventional (surface) Web, 2) the much larger more authoritative Deep Web, 3) proprietary data sources such as Lexis/Nexis, Dow Jones/Factiva, and 4) customers’ internal data sources. The Deep Harvester not only harvests mission critical data from structured data bases, but can harvest data from the geometrically growing store of unstructured information on the Web. Deep Harvesting Web data returns mission critical documents instead of simply returning the most popular links from conventional search such as Google or Yahoo!. Regardless of the source language, document encoding, format, or storage mechanism, BrightPlanet can harvest and normalize “unknown and hidden” content for full scope analytics…at the scale of the internet.
