Wasn’t this supposed to speed things up?

IT pilot fish is moving on with his career, but before he changes employers, he comes up with an easier way for users to get on the company intranet.

“I wanted to relieve the staff of the need to memorize yet another username/password combination — or write it on a sticky note to be posted on the wall,” says fish.

“So I set up an interface that used Windows Active Directory for access authorization, with appropriate fallback in case the domain controller couldn’t be accessed. The whole thing worked like a dream.”

Fast forward a couple years: Fish is brought back in to add more capabilities to the Intranet that’s been faithfully chugging along since he left. But as fish starts on the new project, the IT director casually mentions that intranet logins have been running a lot slower. Could fish perhaps check into that too?

Integrated into Microsoft Internet Explorer® for Windows®, netXtract delivers a breakthrough approach to document navigation and relevance determination. netXtract automatically indexes each document displayed by IE, extracts all contexts for any key term you choose and allows you to “jump” directly to the context you find most interesting. netXtract also allows you to define custom filters, or “dictionaries” of related terms by area of study, interest or business focus (e.g. medical, legal, financial, business intelligence, etc.). Build your own personal knowledge base Once you’ve found relevant information, you decide exactly what to save for future reference. netXtract allows you to build a local personal Knowledge Base of any text you select from documents displayed in Internet Explorer. You can also save to your Knowledge Base from any other application (MS Word, email client, etc.). netXtract’s Knowledge Base (KB) Manager allows you to categorize, maintain and query your Knowledge Base. Selecting any entry saved from a web document returns you directly to that point in the original online document.
