The best search of all time

Search is one of the most elementary functions for effective product content management – which is why mediacockpit 12 relies completely on ElasticSearch for the first time. As a result, our own full-text search is replaced by the technology standard in all areas.

Fast and robust
Search your product information reliably and in real time for relevant data. Thanks to the ability to index a wide variety of content, you’re guaranteed to miss nothing – even if the information you’re looking for is hidden in reports or event documents.

Every search a direct hit
ElasticSearch offers you the full range of search functionalities – including the so-called “wildcard” search. As a result, you can find similar information even if not all search criteria are known, or query specific result patterns.

Explore your data
Bring your ElasticSearch search results to life with interactive Kibana dashboards and explore your data with comprehensive filtering and drill-down capabilities. Kibana dashboards give you and your team a deeper understanding of your business results.

Data maintenance you’ll love

Data maintenance

The new release makes a lot of things easier: for example, mediacockpit 12 maintains all attributes globally, regardless of whether they are used as object, classification or type attributes. All functions such as inheritance or contexts are now globally available.

At the same time, mediacockpit 12 finally breaks the boundaries of complex structures and, in line with mediasuite, mediapublisher and mediaimport, offers detached usage for all data objects instead of a specific hierarchy per type. Less effort in data maintenance with more flexibility and control.

Additionally, we’ve eliminated GUI defaults so you can personalize your user interfaces even more. Customize your widgets and table views to suit your needs and benefit from even more intuitive workflows.

Direct data access

Data access

With mediacockpit 12, we have developed the first modules based on the new “ncore” API, which provides direct access to the database – including the ElasticSearch full text search. We will gradually extend these function modules to other areas as well, bringing even more performance, reliability and efficiency to your data queries.

Further optimizations

The new release also includes numerous new features and enhancements that have been developed based on feedback from our customers and experts. As a result, we ensure that we always further develop and optimize mediacockpit in line with the requirements of its users.
