Internet made quicker, stronger

A PERTH information technology design company has devised a new computer information interface and an entirely new stream of Extensible Mark Up Language (XML).

Civilisation.Net technical director Peter Nicol said the interface, described by its creators as a knowledge management engine, allows computer users to organise, access and communicate information more effectively.

The company’s Civilisation KME interface and Proteus-XML language have been used to develop commercial products including web search engines, intranets, and applications such as web-based time management, billing and accounting systems and auctions.

Its core product, Civilisation 1.0 The Search Environment, allows users to link web sites, files, notes and other information through a custom interface that reads almost all programs and data stores in response to search queries.

KME – the root technology used to make Civilisation 1.0 – also allows corporations to visualise databases. This means users can see the relationships and cross references between data in a visual format.

Proprietary applications on either Windows or Macintosh operating systems can be enhanced when used in conjunction with KME.

Mr Nicol said Civilisation 1.0 was the world’s first truly multi-access, multi-dimensional environment. For this reason, it is ideally suited to Internet applications.

“It pulls up data more quickly and the new language allows for even greater search speed,” Mr Nicol said.

He said Civilisation provided demonstrably richer access to relational data and resources, picking up relationships between data that other search engines would not detect.

“KME is also multi-language enabled and is currently able to work Japanese and English simultaneously – which we believe is a world first,” Mr Nicol said.

The company has Japanese web localisation services with an office in Japan offering local hosting.

“We have had interest from China and the UK and have developed strong partner alliances in Japan,” he said.
