BOSTON, Mass. – September 11, 2014 –BA Insight, provider of software that transforms SharePoint into a Powerful Unified Information Access Platform, introduces 10 new SharePoint connectors that provide secure, high performance indexing for enterprise content sources to make business-critical information accessible and searchable. These pre-built connectors provide connectivity to on-premises and SaaS business systems, and also include heterogeneous security to honor the source systems security schemas.

BA Insight’s ready-made enterprise systems connectors can be immediately deployed in an organization’s environment, without the need for any additional customization. They also reduce the need to migrate content from one system to another, protecting existing investments while quickly surfacing content from disparate source systems into SharePoint for a unified view.

The new connectors include:

  • SharePoint Online
  • Confluence
  • Microsoft Dynamics Online
  • CuadraSTAR
  • Alfresco
  • Scopus
  • PharmaCircle
  • Jive
  • Box

BA Insight also maintains and updates its current set of connectors to ensure optimal performance with the latest versions of the supported content systems.

Hundreds of companies use BA Insight’s connectors to access and leverage information across disparate content sources. BA Insight was also positioned in the “Visionaries” quadrant of the July 16, 2014 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Search.

“When connecting users to disparate content sources, there are several important factors that need to be considered, such as accessing unstructured content, maintaining high throughput, minimizing the impact on source systems, and preserving the source systems’ security schemas,” said Jeff Fried, Chief Technology Officer at BA Insight.  “Organizations often don’t realize how difficult developing connectors can be.  Our ‘out of the box’ connectors to over 50 sources save our customers a great deal of development time so that they can provide access to the valuable content their users need much sooner.”
