Elite Connectors for SharePoint

Lawyers and firm users gain the ability of direct access to Elite information from SharePoint, powered by our Elite for SharePoint Connector, based on the security and access configuration of specific users.  They also get the latest information through continuous incremental crawls.

The Elite connector is off the shelf software that addresses the following requirements:

  • 1
    Uses SharePoint search to find the information, providing consistent search across Elite and other systems connected to SharePoint.
  • 2
    Provides extremely high indexing throughput.
  • 3
    Works with all content within Elite, surfacing it based on user privileges of the source system.
  • 4
    Elite is the repository of the master information and the search index has only a representation (pointers).

Future-proof your investment for new SharePoint versions and O365

With each successive version of SharePoint, Microsoft extends its core capabilities, and the same is true of new releases of the Elite. BA Insight does the hard work of keeping the connector up to date for both Elite and SharePoint. In addition, the Elite Connector also supports O365 through Cloud SSA and current versions of SharePoint on-premise including 2010, 2013, and 2016.

The upgrades are easy to do and can be done by your IT organization. It is a matter of accessing the BA Insight customer portal, downloading the latest release and installing and configuring it.  Or, if desired, our professional services team will handle the upgrades.

Drive end-user engagement

By connecting Elite to SharePoint, you increase adoption of your intranet or knowledge portal, improving organizational productivity and efficiency.
