The Internet community was getting ready last week for the extravaganza of product launches and demonstrations expected at this week?s Internet World show in New York.
IBM will unveil its Java tools and server management products, including Network Dispatcher, which spreads HTTP requests among a number of servers. The company will launch a Java-based suite of data mining tools called net.Mining, which allows companies to determine the relationship between customer behaviour and its business and products.
An intelligent search facility that can differentiate between the various uses of a word such as ?a bush? and ?George Bush?, will be demonstrated by its developers, Net Owl. It has already been licensed by ISP, Delphi Internet Services, IBM and Informix.
