How to Enable Vorsite’s SharePoint Federated Search Web Part for EMC Documentum

May 21, 2009

Vorsite Federated Search for EMC Documentum

The Vorsite Federated Search Connector provides integration points between Microsoft Search Server 2008 or Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Enterprise Content Management Systems such as EMC’s Documentum. By bridging the gap, Vorsite technologies allow information workers to seamlessly access relevant search results from multiple back-end systems, maximizing the value search delivers to enterprise customers. Federated Search Connectors utilizes the SharePoint search engine and the Documentum search engine to pass search queries to a target system and accept and display results returned from that system. Customers tell us, “I need to find all of the information I can about my client with one search query. I don’t care where it comes from; it just needs to be relevant.” Federated Search Connectors are the fastest and easiest way to perform a search query which is sent to both engines and the results are merged together in a single result view.

Advantages of Federating Content with Microsoft SharePoint Search

By using federated search to return search results:

  • You require no additional capacity requirements for the content index, as content is not crawled by the search server.
  • You can take advantage of a repository’s existing search engine. For example, you can federate to an Internet search engine to search the Web.
  • You can optimize the content repository’s search engine for the repository’s specific set of content, which might provide better search performance on the content set.
  • You can access repositories that are secured against crawls, but which can be accessed by search queries.

Key Features

  • Secure, accessible data
    Information workers use their enterprise content management platform permissions to maintain security of available content.
  • Enhanced business processes
    Federated Search connectors remove the need for multiple files and redundant information.
  • Improved quality of business decisions
    The Vorsite Search Connectors make it easier to locate and retrieve relevant data.
