Original Press Release:
Vivisimo Announces Optimized Search and Collaboration Capabilities for SharePoint with Introduction of Velocity 8.1
New Features Provided in Velocity Platform 8.1 Offer Organizations Advanced Tools not Found in Standard SharePoint Search
PITTSBURGH -- Vivisimo, the leader in Information Optimization, announced today Velocity 8.1, the next iteration of its award winning Velocity platform. Recognizing that SharePoint continues to gain acceptance as a key data silo that organizations leverage to store information, Vivisimo has introduced enhanced information access within SharePoint via its Velocity 8.1 version. To achieve this outcome, Velocity 8.1 includes new features, such as continuous updates, that optimize the way information is aggregated, shared and discovered within SharePoint and beyond.
Vivisimo customers are already using Velocity to gain maximum leverage from SharePoint content combined with information from other repositories both inside and outside the organization. With Velocity 8.1, Vivisimo is extending the power of Velocity within SharePoint with key new functionality that includes:
-- Continuous updates enable users to view more quickly and persistently the content changes within SharePoint using a "light touch" approach. Users will now have updated content immediately available for real-time decision-making.
-- Ability to view a single blog and all of its related comments condensed into a single search result. This enables users to see the context of blog comments and more efficiently use search results.
-- Advanced presentation and browsing of SharePoint list items. When searches return items from SharePoint lists that use SharePoint version tracking, Velocity intelligently assembles all of the versions of the list item into a single search result. Users can then browse the item and all of its versions logically and efficiently to find the desired content. This capability provides a superior user experience in contrast to the standard SharePoint search where each item version appears as a separate item, clogging the search results with redundant information and forcing users to determine the right item from many choices.
-- Enhanced security. Velocity 8.1 can collect all user profile information for a user, enabling more granular security and access control than the traditional user and group permission model.
"We took SharePoint to the next level by providing our customers a replacement for its standard search in order to give them optimized information discovery and sharing capabilities," said Stacy Leidwinger, Senior Director of Product Management at Vivisimo. "When employees are in the front line of critical activities such as customer service, they need information in real-time with enhanced accuracy to deliver high quality service and innovation. Velocity 8.1 assists by helping employees to access, share and collaborate around the information stored in SharePoint and other applications around the enterprise."
Now with Velocity 8.1, users can have the flexibility of searching inside and outside SharePoint for content, allowing greater visibility and access into information critical to perform one's job. Support for Microsoft SharePoint is available at no extra charge with Vivisimo Velocity Platform 8.1. Existing Velocity customers under maintenance who are licensed to use the Velocity IO SharePoint Connector will receive the new Velocity SharePoint capabilities as part of their upgrade to Velocity 8.1.
In addition to enhancements to information access with SharePoint, Velocity 8.1 includes additional usability, performance and scalability features, assisting customers as they continue to build out Information Optimization solutions to deliver business value in areas of customer support, sales enablement, supply chain visibility, research and development, and all sectors of the federal government.
