a leading provider of infrastructure software powering enterprise and e-commerce portals as well as e-business applications, today announced that ACM, a society of computing professionals, researchers, students and technology enthusiasts, has improved the organization and retrieval of vast amounts of technical content in its ACM Portal with the help of Verity(R) K2 Catalog software.
Since ACM installed Verity's K2 Catalog software, ACM Portal users have raved about almost instantaneous response times on even the most complex searches," said Wayne Graves, ACM's director of information services.
The ACM Digital Library and ACM Guide -- destinations on the ACM Portal - give members access to full-text journal and magazine articles as well as citations to third-party computer science literature and text from conference proceedings.
The ACM Portal currently hosts 1500 to 2000 sessions at peak times, with five or six complex searches occurring during each session.
Other benefits to ACM Portal users include Verity K2 Catalog's fault-tolerant operation, which distributes queries evenly across multiple servers so that no one server is ever overloaded with requests, and "fuzzy search," a feature that helps users find content in spite of misspelled search terms.
Software developers, computer engineers, students and others use the ACM Portal to find the latest industry news or to conduct research critical to their needs.
