University of Wuppertal teams up with Mindbreeze InSpire

New search solution replaces the existing Google search based on the Google Mini.

The University of Wuppertal (Bergische Universität Wuppertal) is starting the new school year with Mindbreeze InSpire. The previously used Google search is being replaced by Mindbreeze InSpire, the enterprise search and big data solution.



Getting information from numerous data sources quickly is just as crucial for teachers as it is for students. Mindbreeze searches all pages and documents and delivers the hits directly from the created index, which contains all the freely accessible documents and web pages of the university. Dynamic filter possibilities, such as filtering by date or by document type help to refine the results even further. From now on it will be possible to internally search data sources like the LDAP and the document management systems..


"We evaluated a wide range of products, and were quickly convinced by the simplicity and overall approach of Mindbreeze. Initially used together with TWT, we were able to put the appliance into operation within a very short time, and now the service is available to all employees and students. We were particularly impressed by the new functions, like being able to save search queries or the simple adaptation of the query mask to our corporate design," explains Christian Nölle, department head for the Center for Information and Media Processing (ZIM) at the University of Wuppertal. 


Mindbreeze InSpire

Mindbreeze InSpire, the European search appliance (hardware with preinstalled software), delivers enterprise-wide information from both internal applications and cloud applications. For instance, Mindbreeze InSpire offers over 450 connectors as standard, as well as open interfaces and configuration options, especially for relevance adjustment and contextualization. A comprehensive semantic pipeline (self-learning semantic analysis) ensures understanding of content. This gives the user a consolidated and consistently up-to-date view of the topic..
