Anyfinder Desktop Search

Anyfinder is a search engine that has been developed for Infineon Technologies to index data accumulated by the company over the years and distributed over thousands of workstations in its corporate network. The system provides various types of access to the indexed data based on a user’s position within the company.

Infineon Technologies had a lot of corporate data stored on thousands of users’ workstations in multiple formats (XLS, PDF, DOC, etc.), making it hard for the company’s managers to locate a required document and get access to it.


The solution that we have developed has the following functional structure:

  1. A process running on each workstation and indexing corporate documents in real time, taking the minimum amount of CPU power.
  2. A layer of data converters extracting information from the company’s data in different formats and adding it to indexes.
  3. A security layer restricting access to the indexed data according to the user access level (based, for example, on a user’s position within the company).
  4. A centralized search application providing fast access to the indexed data.
