| Jumana, the Information Gathering and Display System
Information for decision-makers is a key factor for success, and with the immense technological advancement we witness nowadays, the Internet has become one of the most important sources of information. There are various ways of extracting information from the Internet but the increasing volume of information hinders accessing required information quickly and accurately. Moreover, the multiplicity of sources and websites leads to facing some sort of contradiction, repetition, or similarity between the elements of information. This entails exerting substantial effort to reach, filter, and extract useful information.
Based on that, Harf Information Technology designed and developed Jumana, the online information gathering and display system. It is composed of a number of components that are linked together in a coordinated way to offer users the required information. It provides automated services and functions that fulfill the needs of anyone who wishes to reach information quickly, accurately, and inexpensively.
The Jumana system gathers information from the Internet, deletes the repetitions, classifies, summarizes, and indexes the key words and phrases, then displays them in the form of reports for decision-makers or makes them available as daily newsletters via a LAN connecting a group of employees or users.
The Jumana information gathering and display system provides users with instant comprehensive information without going through a series of operations such as determining the specifications, design and execution for each user. This may be followed by the possibility of a high cost, non-conformity with specifications, and disagreement with the user's needs, in addition to the risks of designing custom systems for each user.
| Buraq, the Arabic Search Engine
Search engines are important tools for information systems and Internet websites that allow users to reach needed information quickly and accurately. They can also be a point of weakness when they offer users many unrelated information. Buraq, the Arabic search engine, is specially designed to search in Arabic texts and to avoid the flaws of other engines. Buraq depends on an accurate morphological analyzer that takes into account that Arabic is a derivative language. The same word has many derivations with different structures. Buraq depends on the morphological analysis rules of the Arabic language in addition to Diacritization, since the meaning of a word changes according to its Diacritization.
| Harf Sat, the Satellite Engine
Visual material is one of the most important means used today in spreading and broadcasting information to the largest number of viewers. Television offers the ability to quickly interact with the viewer and affect them by sending a certain idea or message. Based on this fact, Harf Information Technology has developed and prepared Harf Sat, a satellite engine which offers the possibility of broadcasting any video content with both sound and picture. It allows the user to fully control all that is required to be broadcasted and choose the display format.
| Harf Translator, the Translation Support System
This is a multiple-user translation system that increases the speed and enhances the accuracy of the translation process from Arabic into English and vice versa. The system depends on previously translated texts and electronic dictionaries that are stored in a Translation Memory. Harf Translator assists translators by electronically suggesting translations for phrases or segments which can easily be accepted or modified.
