Revving up Velocity
Vivisimo has unveiled a mobile solution for workers to access and search corporate intranets, e-mail, data sources and other internal applications from mobile devices. Vivisimo Velocity for Mobile is now available as an extension to the Velocity enterprise search platform, which is described by the company as an end-to-end solution that allows searching on the desktop, internal repositories and external content from a single search box.
The company explains that Velocity for Mobile optimizes search results for mobile environments, providing detailed snippets, automatic topic creation and data call-outs for quick referencing in a fashion similar to that of the enterprise offering.
Velocity for Mobile is a downloadable application that functions in Windows Mobile OS environments and connects to the Velocity enterprise search platform. Other features include:
- results categorized by topics with short snippets and precise titles of documents, files or pieces of data;
- information relevancy weighted to match the user's typical workflow or line of business;
- crawling and indexing special collections, such as customer data, support logs and contract databases, to call out specific information above the main result set; and
- clicked results displayed as a cached version of the data to eliminate the need to download additional browsing software.
Vivisimo reports Velocity for Mobile is now generally available and requires little configuration to transform the enterprise deployment of Velocity into a mobile-ready solution. Administrators can download templates to customize the interface for deployment, and Web tools allow easy adjustments on relevancy of results and creation of new mobile call-outs. The application complies with pre-existing corporate security settings and supports VPN access to corporate data to ensure maximum security.
