What it can do for your business

This interface helps ensure index information is accurately defined in the archive to improve the quality of search results. The IBM Extended External Data Service interface can be integrated with the standard EDS Plug-in to validate metadata entries using a set of predefined policies. These customer-specific policies can then be stored and managed by a system administrator or operating department.

Benefits
