Feed external content into Office 365 with BA Insight
BA Insight has released Connectors for Hybrid SharePoint, out-of-the-box software that operates conjunction with Microsoft’s new Cloud Search Service Application (Cloud SSA) to bring content into a unified search index running in Office 365. BA Insight says that for the first time, organizations can use an online search facility, run by Microsoft, to provide a unified view across all content enterprisewide.
All of BA Insight’s connectors can now feed into Office 365, integrating more 50 systems, including EMC Documentum, OpenText LiveLink, IBM FileNet, Box, Jive, Salesforce.com, Microsoft Dynamics CRM and IBM Connections. The content feeds several key parts of Office 365:
- search, including search centers and all applications built on search in Office 365;
- the Office Graph, making external content visible through Office Delve experiences; and
- Office 365 data loss prevention (DLP), which scans content and ties to the Compliance Center within Office 365.
