LONDON, March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
RAVN Systems, experts in Enterprise Search, Unstructured Big Data analytics and Knowledge Management solutions, are pleased to announce the release of RAVN Connect for Microsoft SharePoint 2013, a solution to enhance the scope and performance of Microsoft SharePoint 2013 Search. Test results have shown 97% reduction of network traffic, 70% faster document preview times and more than doubled indexing performance, amongst many other benefits, when using the solution on distributed SharePoint sources.
Microsoft SharePoint 2013 is fundamentally a very capable content management and collaboration tool with a powerful embedded search engine. However, RAVN Connect for SharePoint provides a single solution for addressing limitations in connectivity and document preview outside of the Microsoft ecosystem, fully supporting distributed content, advanced enrichment services and federation while respecting security permissions across repositories. SharePoint users now have access to the robust and rich entity extraction module, intelligent auto-tagging and categorisation functionality, instant document previews with in-document search enabled as standard.
RAVN Connect for Microsoft SharePoint provides a safe, secure and cost effective connectivity layer to all Microsoft, non-Microsoft and legacy content ecosystems. Whether in a centralised, distributed or a hybrid architecture, RAVN Connect for SharePoint delivers a truly Universal Search from SharePoint 2013 Search resulting in savings across the SharePoint estate itself but also dramatic reductions in demands on the WAN and on query and indexing latency.
RAVN Connect for SharePoint introduces a federator which implements unique merging of search results with improved relevance ranking, whilst still supporting the simpler methods of interleaved results and randomised merging. When using RAVN federation, the SharePoint search index does not need to ingest the content itself, yet makes it seamlessly visible and searchable through SharePoint 2013 Search.
RAVN Connect for Microsoft SharePoint 2013 leverages established RAVN products; Pipeline, Security Server, Preview and Manage and maximises investment in SharePoint and other Enterprise systems.
It was recently integrated into COWI, a leading consultancy group. Frederik Bonde Lykke Nielsen, Senior IT Manager commented: "RAVN Connect has revolutionised Microsoft SharePoint 2013 Search in our distributed environment."
