i411 - SearchTools Report Updated

i411 is a faceted metadata search and browse engine, capable of scaling to very large deployments, such as the DexOnline yellow pages site, which uses it for both search results and browse navigation. The most recent version adds a web crawler to the local file and database connectors, a natural language module that can extract entities from queries and provide concept-based spellcheck, more flexibility in the search flow, and a SiteOptimizer analytics and reporting module to expose site dynamics and user behavior.

(Disclaimer: I consulted with DexOnline and helped them choose the engine among a very strong field of candidates.)
