Solution for Office 365 and Hybrid Scenarios
Our overarching goal is to make a seamless user experience in Office 365 possible through a rich index, including consistent metadata and content from enterprise and line-of-business systems, accessed with full security.
Whenever possible, this is a single centralized index. Where data residency or content volumes prohibit a single index, a virtual index is created across farms and unified into a single interleaved result set. Our Connectivity Software connects to on-premises and cloud-based systems so it can be crawled alongside SharePoint content. All content is automatically tagged with metadata and processed for easy findability, including the creation of our Smart Previews. Portals driven from this index can provide a remarkable user experience by leveraging pre-built components such as Content Assembly and Visual Refiners.
Our customers have found that installing and using Office 365 OOTB isn’t easy and the resulting user experience is inadequate. They have discovered that integrating content from outside of SharePoint using a unified index is powerful and effective, that automatically created metadata applied consistently across farms drives findability and exploration, and that creating portals with pre-built user experience components makes for responsive IT and happy users. That’s why they work with BA Insight.
