Minnesota Uses Vivisimo’s Velocity Search Platform

Mar 27, 2009

Minnesota is working with Vivisimo, a provider of enterprise search, in an effort to improve usability and findability in state web sites and to develop a new web hosting service for state agencies. The Minnesota Office of Enterprise Technology’s web site will utilize the integration of Vivisimo’s Velocity Search Platform into a new content management system. The project will show the capabilities of Velocity as well as the content management system, with the ultimate goal of indexing state content, federated search of external web sites, and making the information available through a search box for public-facing sites and on intranet and extranets for state employees and the public. The new site powered by Velocity will allow residents to find and access license applications and renewals online.
