Elite Connectors for SharePoint

Lawyers and firm users gain the ability of direct access to Elite information from their portal, powered by our Elite 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, Azure Search, and/or Elasticsearch to find needed information, providing consistent search across Elite.
  • 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

As new versions of Azure Search, Elasticsearch, and SharePoint Search are released, new features and functionality are introduced, and the same is true of new releases of Elite. BA Insight takes on the burden of keeping the connector up to date for both Elite and the respective search engines. The upgrades are easy to do and can be done by your IT organization. It is simply a matter of accessing the BA Insight customer portal, downloading the latest release, and installing and configuring it. If desired, our professional services team can handle the upgrades.

By connecting Elite to your preferred search engine, you increase adoption of your intranet, improving organizational efficiency and productivity.
