The beginning of 2009 is proving to be a time for product updates. XMLAW, provider of information and knowledge management solutions for the legal industry has some product updates of their own to share. OneView is XMLAW's suite of applications that provide a framework for intranet, extranet and search solutions built on the SharePoint Server 2007 and it has had a major overhaul for 2009.
OneView is a framework that enables solutions like dashboards, mashups and searches be built with content from multiple source. Built on SharePoint 2007, the suite has three major components: OneView Connect, OneView Search and OneView Extranet.
New For 2009 - Extranet and Search
OneView Extranet is the latest addition to the suite. It offers automated creation and management of SharePoint-based extranet sites (workspaces). It's their first packaged solution, offering integration with practice management and document management systems. The extranet enables clients and partners to have web access to documents located within sites and libraries without risking the exposure of those documents over the internet.
XMLAW - Extranet
Revamped for 2009 is OneView Search. This solution is built on MOSS and MS Search Server and includes performance and scalability improvements. In addition, new metadata connectors extend and enhance searchable information that can include content from systems such as Open Text and Interwoven Worksite.
Additional Enhancements to the OneView Suite
To go along with the new Extranet solution and the revamped search solution, there are a number of additional enhancements:
- User Experience Updates: To enable a rich internet application atmosphere within SharePoint, you can now use AJAX-powered components for things like data access and navigation. Also included is integration with Silverlight applications.
- Tagging and Targeting of Content: Now create taxonomies for content located inside and outside of SharePoint and use those tags for targeting/filtering content.
- Standards Integration: Integrate content sources using REST or SOAP and enhanced support for RSS2.0 using OneView Connect. And don't forget CMIS -- it's included as well.
- Tools for Developers and SharePoint Administrator: An API for custom connectors, a web service API for integrating external information sources and RSS integration for developers. For admins you get consolidated centralized admin, a new profile importer and a search manager.
OneView Connect is available now. OneView Extranet and OneView Search will be available as of February 16th. Take a look at the XMLAW website for more detailed information.
