Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 7:22 am

IBM is open sourcing a jointly developed search architecture with a view to creating a common industry approach to querying unstructured enterprise data.

The company is today expected to announce plans to open source the Unstructured Information Management Architecture (UIMA) used in the company’s WebSphere Information Integrator OmniFind Edition, WebSphere Portal Server and Lotus Workplace. IBM is also open sourcing the UIMA toolkit.

UIMA provides a framework for software tools and services capable of conducting context-based searches across millions of unstructured records, databases, content repositories and email systems.
