May 24, 2012, New York, NY — BA Insight, a leader in agile information integration, today announced that it has forged a partnership with MuseGlobal, a leading content integration firm based in San Francisco. As a result of the partnership, BA Insight has dramatically expanded the number of content sources it can securely integrate into its TotalView Applications, search-driven and role-specific solutions built atop the Microsoft SharePoint platform that integrate an organization's various data sources to provide knowledge workers with a 360-view of any topic, task, or subject matter.
Under the terms of the partnership, MuseGlobal's library of connectors to hundreds of ‘beyond the firewall' content sources – including internet databases, digital news sources, and online libraries – will now be added to BA Insight's existing library of connectors to over 40+ enterprise systems. This will enable BA Insight to deliver TotalView applications that surface and fuse content from not only all of an organization's internal systems, but also all of the external data streams, news feeds, and proprietary information services it needs to make informed decisions.
"To be successful, knowledge workers today must deal with a staggering amount of data from a variety of sources; and do so in an efficient manner", said Guy Mounier, CEO of BA Insight. "Search-Driven Applications are the answer, and our partnership with industry-leader MuseGlobal enables us to supplement our existing portfolio of Longitude Connectors for enterprise systems with connectors for thousands of additional external data sources. Our company's strategic goal is to deliver the most intuitive and productive enterprise search applications in the industry, and we are proud to be working with MuseGlobal in support of this vision."
Delivering The Content Workers Need to Make Decisions and Drive Business
Built atop Microsoft's SharePoint platform and leveraging Microsoft's best-in-class enterprise search technologies, BA Insight's TotalView applications deliver the same ‘contextual' search experience that users have grown accustomed to in the consumer space - where search-driven applications like Expedia.com and Zagat.com not only surface information from across multiple sources, but also present that information in a manner customized to the user, his/her role, location, and objective(s). Because TotalView applications are built atop of – and integrate seamlessly with – Microsoft SharePoint and/or FAST Search for SharePoint, they can be deployed at a fraction of the time and cost associated with traditional data integration or Business Intelligence initiatives. TotalView applications have been deployed by organizations of all types and sizes, to meet the needs of a of a variety of business processes - including Customer Call Center Consoles, Attorney Matter & Client-centric information Centers, and Intelligence Analysts' Workbenches.
"BA Insight pioneered the creation of high value search-driven applications to connect Microsoft's SharePoint and Fasts Enterprise Search solution to any enterprise system out-of-the-box and provides users with a unified view of enterprise information, regardless of format or source," stated Kristina Bivins, MuseGlobal's CEO. "With over 6,500 pre-built Smart Connectors MuseGlobal is readily able to empower enterprise search applications with content and we are delighted to partner with BA Insight in expanding their existing library of connectors in TotalView applications."
