MicroLink introduces DiscoverPoint
MicroLink has debuted DiscoverPoint, software engineered to automatically deliver relevant content, connect subject matter experts and enable secure enterprise social networking in a SharePoint environment.
The company says DiscoverPoint helps organizations with vast amounts of information and a heavy reliance on subject matter experts to realize productivity efficiencies by improving information retrieval and enabling companywide collaboration and communities of interest.
MicroLink claims DiscoverPoint eases the burden of manually searching for information and expertise by aggregating information from multiple systems across the enterprise and automatically delivering the results within a single SharePoint interface. By employing user and data analysis techniques, DiscoverPoint builds an understanding of each user’s areas of expertise and interests based on his or her activity, thus eliminating reliance on manual tracking of user skill areas and assignments, as required by other available solutions.
The collaboration benefit is further surfaced through the ability to establish communities of expertise and facilitate improved real-time communications, reducing redundancy of efforts and thereby improving performance, while reducing costs. DiscoverPoint filters both structured and unstructured documents and content including social postings, such as blogs and Wikis.
