Vivisimo has announced the release of Velocity 8.0. A key new feature of Velocity 8.0 is IO Pro, which introduces new controls for business users, content owners, and knowledge workers to optimize the way content is discovered by and presented to users. Business users can use IO Pro to promote and highlight the most relevant content, best bets and other important information. Content owners can configure relevant acronyms, synonyms and related terms to be displayed upon the context of the original inquiry helping increase recall. With IO Pro, Velocity 8.0 greatly reduces the need for IT resource consumption by granting greater control over information delivery to those individuals closest and most knowledgeable about the needs of end-user.
Vivisimo is targeting the Microsoft SharePoint market with Velocity 8.0, which allows users to navigate through all of their information assets such as email, archives, file shares, CRM data and more directly in the SharePoint interface driving a single point of access to all information.
New additions also include Intelligent Auto-Completion so that as users form ,a query they are automatically recommended related terms based on what is typed (within a secure enterprise, users are only shown terms that are in content that they are authorized to view); and Windows Desktop Search Update, which enhances Velocity's federated search connector to the Windows Desktop Search (WDS) application, including support for Windows 7.
