Database and Text Retrieval
Inmagic® DB/TextWorks® is a special combination of database and text retrieval software that enables you to build “textbases” (text / multi-media databases) to manage diverse types of information including bibliographic catalogs, documents, images, multimedia, etc.
DB/TextWorks runs on Windows Operating systems and can be used on a single PC or in a networked environment. DB/TextWorks texbases can be made web accessible via DB/Text WebPublisher PRO.
The Best of Both Worlds
DB/TextWorks combines a database management system and a text retrieval system. It’s easy to use and does not require any programming. This combination delivers a powerful, flexible system that can be used by non-IT staff to organize information and share knowledge throughout an organization.
Build Once, Publish Anywhere
DB/TextWorks is ideal for organizing, publishing, and disseminating your information anywhere. Whether you want to publish your information on the Internet, your corporate intranet, over your LAN, or on CD-ROM, DB/TextWorks helps you get the job done. DB/TextWorks provides an easily managed knowledge repository to utilize and preserve your content and information assets.
Fast, Precise, and User-Friendly Searching
DB/TextWorks offers powerful search capabilities including keyword, fielded (or parametric ), Boolean, phrase, and proximity searching. Query screens can also include prompts to search several fields at once. Users can paste keywords or terms from popup indices that are automatically built by DB/TextWorks and displayed along with the search screen.
Flexible Design and Maintenance
A textbase can contain just about anything, from customer information to company policies or competitive intelligence. The design of your textbase depends on your particular application needs. You simply specify the fields that you want to include in each record. The DB/TextWorks fields can handle full and abstracted text, plus dates, numbers, images, and more. You can pour as much information into any field as necessary, from a 50-word memo to a 50-page proposal.
Time-saving 3-D Data Model Simplifies Design and Linked Textbases
DB/TextWorks is three-dimensional. It allows you to add multiple and distinct entries into any field at any time, such as multiple recipients of email, or multiple book authors. This simplifies textbase design and maintenance, while maximizing your searching and reporting precision. DB/TextWorks’ ability to link one textbase to others eliminates redundant information, and reduces the time you spend entering and updating your data.
Transfer Your Existing Records Easily
By importing ASCII-delimited files, you can add thousands of records to a textbase from virtually any third-party database package. Your existing database records can be transferred to DB/TextWorks in minutes. You can also import text from documents in a variety of formats, such as Microsoft® Office or PDF.
