Chapter 9. “Chrisco Books” scenario
To illustrate the Portal Search custom design, this chapter describes a sample
intranet portal scenario for a fictitious technical book publisher called “Chrisco
Books”. The example described is a demonstration of the need for a single
portal-based search capability across Web sites (HTML), file systems, content
management systems, and Lotus Domino databases.
Although this example scenario was created for a publishing company, the same
solution should meet the needs of most companies where unstructured textual
information is contained in various disparate repositories, and where multiple
search technologies have already been deployed in point solutions.
