San Francisco, Calif. — May 10, 2010. MuseGlobal, provider of award-winning content integration platforms worldwide, today announced a new release of its Muse Content Machine that includes support for interoperability with the SAP NetWeaver Enterprise Search application.
This updated version of the Muse Content Machine, which includes support for SAP NetWeaver Enterprise Search, allows users to use Muse Smart Connectors as a means of gathering information from a wide array of enterprise applications and commercial content sources. Providing customers with a quick, extensible and cost-effective means to extend the reach of their SAP NetWeaver Enterprise Search, MuseGlobal's Content Machine and Smart Connectors harvest content and information well beyond what is typically held within an organization's applications to include the whole of their enterprise's information landscape.
Enterprises Demand Comprehensive Search Solutions
An organization's mission-critical data is stored in a wide variety of information silos such as enterprise resource planning systems, customer relationship management systems and business intelligence systems, as well as locally developed databases, repositories, and servers. Workers regularly rely on the many different search tools in these multiple applications to find the information that is needed to perform their jobs.
SAP NetWeaver Enterprise Search indexes content and information harvested by Muse Smart Connectors, creating an exhaustive, single-stop search portal for the enterprise.
SAP NetWeaver Enterprise Search helps business users navigate critical business information by enabling seamless, secure access to SAP and non-SAP information and processes. It provides out-of-the-box connectivity to a broad range of SAP systems. Users of Muse Content Machine, when used together with SAP NetWeaver Enterprise Search, can now extend this functionality to a wide range of third-party systems, allowing users to perform a single search across all of their enterprise's information resources, interacting with the results in a uniform, contextual environment.
"Organizations need a complete view of their data; they are at risk if they miss key facts that may reside in unknown repositories," said Sue Feldman, industry analyst, IDC. "Because enterprise search is a well-known and easy-to-use paradigm, it makes sense to use the MuseGlobal ability to collect, prepare, and merge data from many different sources and include that data in the index of the enterprise search application, such as SAP NetWeaver Enterprise Search. Adding more, richer information into a widely used, familiar work environment gives workers an experience that is immeasurably enhanced with more and better information."
"SAP NetWeaver Enterprise Search is an ideal application for us to support in our product line," said Kristina Bivins, president and CEO, MuseGlobal. "Our wide array of pre-built Smart Connectors as well as our ability to quickly deliver new connectors for unique, one-of-a-kind sources means a greatly reduced implementation timeline and an overall lower total cost of ownership, giving our mutual customers a powerful set of tools to create the perfect enterprise search experience."
