Vivísimo Launches New Velocity Discovery Module

Vivísimo (, a provider of enterprise search software and expertise, launched the Velocity Discovery Module, an addition to the Vivísimo Velocity Search Platform that expands the ability of organizations to quickly and automatically classify all data by topics and themes. The new module also adds improved collaboration tools that speed the process of accessing, reviewing, and sharing search results.

The launch of Vivísimo Velocity 6.0 in 2007 delivered a key innovation of adding essential social software tools to enterprise search. The concept of social search includes such tools as document and keyword tagging, rating and annotation of documents and search terms, use of shared virtual folders and content mashups—all aimed at improving collaboration, innovation, and productivity in the enterprise.

Adding the Discovery Module to the Velocity platform is designed to strengthen search as the essential tool to drive innovation throughout the enterprise. Specific functionality allows for the rapid classification of all available data for quick insight into information themes and topics without ever entering a search query. The discovery module’s autoclassification feature uncovers data that managers may have lost or never known of to begin with—information that may be critical to their businesses. Vivísimo says it is the first to use clustering capabilities to produce a full autoclassification system on top of a search platform.

The new Discovery Module’s enhanced collaboration features of express tagging—the ability to quickly tag large groups of search results—and native document export empowers search users to add their own knowledge faster than ever and to disseminate value-added content in its native format to colleagues and partners alike. The ability to easily tag, collect, save, share, and archive documents by the thousands or millions through search queries enables powerful knowledge sharing throughout a company.
