Hello KM-TREX Gurus,
The question is whether a single search request can provide the result based on both the structured(data residing in the database) and unstructured data available in an organization?
So far we have come across repository managers for unstructured data residing in different repositories. The contents of these repositories can be Indexed and hence can be searched using a TREX search.
Is there any repository manager available for structured data stored in a database? Or do we have to write it on our own?
We came to know that TREX search can be done in MDM. If so, SAP already has a repository manager available for a database. Will that be made available to the customers in the near future?
Is that repository manager specific to MDM?
If so, do we need to write repository manager for each database?
Please clarify. Any input in this regard will be really helpful and will be greatly rewarded.
Thanks in advance.
what we consider a "true" enterprise search solution - an integrated search over business objects (BOs), master data, documents as in KM, and 3rd party indexes - will come step by step.
You can integrate various document repositories into KM and thus search over them.
The search engine service (SES) that originates from MDM will deliver as a generic service in the Web AS ABAP. It is able to publish any business object to TREX and then search over it again.
Release after NetWeaver 2004s:
SAP will add the meta search framework that will allow access to both of the above and any other integrated search strategy at the same time, with one search, through one UI.
Will you be at one of the SAP TechEds 2005?
I will speak about that roadmap in Vienna and a colleague will do so in Boston.
