Vivísimo Brings Social Search to the Enterprise

Vivísimo, Inc. ( has introduced social search for the enterprise with the announcement of its new Vivísimo Velocity 6.0 enterprise search platform, which will be available within 45 days. Velocity 6.0 lets users save, share, and take action on search results to foster collaboration and new levels of communication within the organization.

Velocity 6.0 harnesses the human knowledge about content resident in an organization with social tagging by giving end users the ability to vote on or rate search results using a numerical scale. This combined insight into the usefulness of information can be used to adjust relevancy of results in real time. Furthermore, Velocity 6.0 empowers users to tag search results with keywords, providing a more efficient and faster search experience.

Velocity 6.0 also allows users to add their own knowledge about information found via search directly into the search result itself in the form of free-text annotation. Rather than sending an email with a file attachment to colleagues with commentary about a document, users can have a dialogue about content right within the search interface. And social bookmarking within Velocity 6.0 allows users to save search results into virtual folders for future reference to use or to share with others, such as a project team. Velocity 6.0 also provides a visual map or executive dashboard of hot topics within groups, departments, or across the entire enterprise.

Based on a service-oriented architecture that enables rapid deployment, the company said that Vivísimo Velocity can be up and running in just weeks. Vivísimo serves its global client base through headquarters in Pittsburgh and Paris as well as partners throughout the world.
