New Idea Engineering Inc., a consulting company that helps businesses implement enterprise search, announced July 21 the beta debut of a new web site, Search Components Online, which provides a directory of "open source, no cost, low cost and commercial software tools components and products."

With a bevy of categories including HTML utilities, commercial products with free demos, XML/XSLT and search engine, the site is designed to help commercial Intranet businesses hone their search products at little to no cost.

This new Search Components Online service could be very valuable to businesses and consumers alike looking to enhance their search applications at little to no charge. It can also save hours of open search online because the site has so many tools gathered and explained in one place.

According to its web site, New Idea Engineering Inc. helps Fortune 1000 companies successfully implement enterprise search by providing skilled consulting services for search engine evaluation, installation and implementations, as well as ongoing help with search analytics as content and search trends change. Search Components Online is meant to further that assistance.

Search expert Stephen E. Arnold, owner of ArnoldIT.com and the Web log Beyond Search interviewed New Idea founders Miles Kehoe and Mark Bennett recently, and it was there that Kehoe explained the thinking behind the newly launched web site.

"There are very few places to find good tools for search. Part of the problem is that when you go looking for these kinds of tools on Google, you get millions and millions of hits because the terms you use are so common. It's not always easy to find what you are looking for," Kehoe said.

The web site is presented in a blog format, so users may comment on each post and offer ideas, shareware, freeware and more for review and/or inclusion in the site. The site also includes the clever "Dr. Search" who takes questions about enterprise search by e-mailing mbk@ideaeng.com [mbk@ideaeng.com ].

"We are confident that the site will make it a bit easier to find those handy utilities, widgets and web parts to solve problem people have around search," Kehoe said.

"There's considerable confusion about search tools, particularly with regard to connectors. This service may provide some anchoring for system professionals trying to solve certain search-related problems," Arnold said.
