Xtractly is a reliable & efficient way to harvest content from anywhere it exists online, to power search verticals, populate reports or trigger alerts according to your unique specifications. Xtractly navigates obstacles that stop the traditional search engines dead in their tracks. It fills in forms, remembers passwords & pushes buttons to find its way to targeted content, and then deliver it in the format of your choice. Its powerful architecture is nimble and discreet, with extensive infrastructure to enable Xtractly to harvest large quantities of data with minimal impact on the sites it collects from. Capabilities like these have traditionally been available through only a very small group of very high-end software providers, and deployments have traditionally required extensive training and ongoing support services to also be purchased at an additional premium. But Xtractly takes a different approach. We provide highly scalable web-data-extraction as a service. There's no software to license and when you hire Xtractly you put our entire team behind your project. Our tested and proven technology and seasoned staff make us the efficient way to extract large amounts of online content without having to train and manage your own in-house personnel. This translates to tremendous savings, in both time and money, with rich, new areas of opportunity for businesses and agencies alike, ready to leverage the powerful and unique capabilities that the Xtractly solution provides.
Different web sites have different ways of depicting information. Depending upon the sources that you wish to gather data from, various degrees of "structuring" may be required before the data will usable for the particular purposes you have in mind for it. This will often require that some "massaging" and validation be done, and commonly makes use of multiple approaches that may include some form of context analysis, weighted terms analysis, natural language processing, keyword aliasing, inference logic or field parsing. Xtractly's proprietary technology can automate this part of the process once the initial set-up phase is complete, to bring order-out-of-chaos and prepare the data for easy incorporation into the application or database of your choice. The amount of structuring that will be required will depend upon several factors, such as the type of sites that you're collecting data from and the nature of the information thatŐs to be obtained. In general, highly un-structured sources--like classified ads--will typically require much more work than comparatively more structured sites--such as vertical search engines--that present their content in neatly tabled format. Once you tell us what kind of data you're interested in we can give you an idea of how much work will likely be required to extract it and make it app-ready.
Once the data has been collected and "structured" it can be normalized to fit within the existing framework of your site, application, dashboard, report or alerting system. We tailor the information to be sent or pulled into your application seamlessly according to the schedule that you require, and in the format of your choice. All major programming languages and database formats are supported with coding and taxonomy services available on an hourly basis. We're happy to work with your existing team to help ensure a successful deployment, or handle the entire project if required. A full range of development services are available, see: "Programming" for pricing information and services offered.
