GSA Connector Framework
Federation of all data silos to provide users with immediate access to key information from all your data silos should be the aim of any productive business. Key decisions need relevant information, quality customer service is delivered when information is complete and accurate and risks can be reduced when a decision is balanced by a complete view of available data. The Google Search Appliance Connector framework helps this vision become a real part of your business.
Corporations have embraced the advantage of content management systems and information storage to create accurate records of policy, customer cases and key critical data. These silos can be specific to tasks or evolved from legacy systems. Trim, DocuShare, LiveLink, Open text and more recently the SharePoint platform along with file shares are common business data silos. The Google Search Appliance Connector framework allows full connectivity, respect of security settings and incremental updates to facilitate federated search across the Enterprise.
BluePoint has a suite of in-house connectors, can test third party connectors or will write a custom connector to suit your required federated search solution. The key to productive use of the Google Search Appliance is to extract information from all your data repositories. BluePoint is a catalyst in this process and can provide consultancy on your individual data silo’s to map out a progressive solution to better use your business information. Connectors often place a key role in a successful deployment.
