The BA Insight WebSphere Connector provides full security and operates at high throughput to minimize crawl times while maintaining a low performance impact on WebSphere. It only requires read access, and there is no need to install client software on any WebSphere server. This results in seamless and simultaneous access to all content stored in WebSphere.
Organizations leverage WebSphere to solve a wide range of complex business problems, and the data created within these specific applications can go unnoticed in the intranet or search portal platform.
BA Insight’s WebSphere for SharePoint Connector securely indexes both the full text and metadata of WebSphere objects into SharePoint’s search engine, enabling a single searchable result set across content from multiple repositories. This allows organizations to tap into the wealth of information accessible within WebSphere, SharePoint and other repositories, and makes that data instantly actionable to users through search.
The WebSphere Connector honors the security of source application and provides both full and incremental crawls so the users have the latest information available to them all the time.
Our WebSphere connector for SharePoint:
1Provides security trimming, only surfacing the content that users are permitted to see.
2Minimizes the impact on the source application, ensuring no impact to its performance.
3Provides both full and incremental crawls so users have the latest information.
4Indexes every desired item with a very high throughput, minimizing the impact on WebSphere’s performance.
5Provides a single consolidated search index referencing WebSphere content, along with content from SharePoint and other repositories, resulting in a single unified result set.
6After WebSphere is crawled, the search index uses a representation pointing to the original content. This enables the users to click on a search result and be taken to the original item or document.
7Works with all types of data.
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 WebSphere. BA Insight does the hard work of keeping the connector up to date for both WebSphere and SharePoint. In addition, the WebSphere 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 can handle the upgrades.
