today released Visual Fusion 4
(VF4), the most comprehensive visual mashup platform in the market. With VF4, everyone in an organization is empowered to build interactive, business-focused applications in days or weeks, not months or years. Long a hallmark of IDV, the world-class user experience of Visual Fusion has been expanded to include Silverlight, taking compelling, high performing applications to the next level of usability within an organization (take a test drive at vf4demo.idvsolusions.com
). Enterprise search has also been incorporated within VF4, so now all content connected to Visual Fusion is available to be searched: SharePoint content, web feeds (GeoRSS & KML), Excel data, Oracle, ESRI, and line of business systemsthey all fall under the domain of VF4 Enterprise Search. All of these capabilities drive the main value points that Visual Fusion brings to the enterprise: rapid insight, business agility, and increased productivity.
This new release of Visual Fusion continues to push the envelope of SharePoint integration: new Visual Fusion mashup applications can be built within SharePoint utilizing site templates, workflow, security, lists, libraries, and Visual Fusion application building GUIs suitable for anyone. Visual Fusion geospatially-enables SharePoint by embedding location and time in Lists and Libraries, and then providing a mechanism to easily syndicate or publish List and Library content in geospatial formats such as KML and GeoRSS from inside SharePoint. Real-time user contribution is also brought into SharePoint with Visual Fusion Contribute, an iPhone App that sends geo-tagged photos and comments to a SharePoint Library.
"This is another game changing moment for organizations seeking the value of visual, enterprise mashups inside the familiar world of SharePoint," noted Ian Clemens, CTO at IDV Solutions. "It has never been easier to benefit from the power of Enterprise 2.0 than it is right now with Visual Fusion."
With VF4 organizations gain five very important capabilities:
* Connecting to virtually any data source in the enterprise or on the Web
* Visualizing all information in meaningful context and with repeatable application templates
* Creating custom variables, hotspots, & alerts specific to each business-focused application
* Providing secure, permission-based publishing for appropriate application views
* Enabling contribution from individuals in real-time via a diverse set of inputs
These capabilities are presented in ways that give the enterprise great agility and flexibility, ultimately driving value for the organization in terms of productivity, insight, and profitability. Visual Fusion is the right product for any organization looking to unlock untapped value within their data stores, their SharePoint investment, or their enterprise systems.
