OXFORD — Oxford-based Alcove9 LLC, developers of advanced search technologies, announced a partnership Wednesday with Orange, Calif. business system integration specialists Van De Roest Group Inc.
The partnership improves the productivity of clients’ critical business systems by combining the power of custom interoperability with advanced search capabilities.
The vdR Group recently announced the launch of a new service offering, Optimize, providing custom enterprise application integration services for open source solutions. Optimize services were deployed on a project for Alcove9 to develop connectivity and a user-interface enhancement between the a9 Hub and Aras Innovator. The result is a9 AppConnect for Aras Innovator, enabling Aras Innovator data and files to now be searchable data sources within the a9 Hub.
The product also allows Aras customers to use Alcove9’s advanced search capabilities within the familiar user-interface of Aras Innovator, or completely independent of it. Users can immediately locate part and product data residing in Aras Innovator without requiring prior knowledge of its object type, and also view other data sources that have been indexed throughout an enterprise.
“Alcove9’s advanced search capabilities are a great example of open source technology providing immediate efficiency improvements for customers, said Martin van der Roest, president of Van Der Roest Group. “We look forward to building upon our new partnership with Alcove9 while continuing to optimize the interoperability of CAD, PDM, PLM, ECM, and ERP to support our clients’ unique workflow requirements.”
