Dallas, TX, United States, 2008/06/11 - Telligent, a recognized social software firm headquartered in Dallas, announced today Community Server Evolution, a new product that enables integration of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 with Community Server 2008.
Community Server Evolution integrates with Office SharePoint Server 2007 to leverage existing .NET technology investments and enables enterprise social computing inside corporation’s firewalls.
• The preview of Community Server Evolution for Office SharePoint Server 2007 integration is currently available for Community Server customers.
• Community Server Evolution will release Q3 2008.
• Evolution is the first step in an ongoing and committed development effort and the first of multiple releases that will continue to expand Community Server’s back-office Intranet/Extranet integration and user functionality.
• By positioning the two proven platforms side-by-side, Telligent unlocks key integration points that enable robust enterprise social computing inside the firewall: shared authentication and single sign-on, aggregate content in one central location, enterprise search that spans both applications, and more.
• Integration points include a seamless, integrated experience, enterprise-grade blogging, feature-rich discussion forums, social streams, media & video sharing, business analytics & behavior, and more.
• Telligent is currently working with multiple clients on opportunities to deploy Community Server Evolution. These enterprise clients have significant Office SharePoint Server 2007 installations and will provide valuable use case scenarios for Evolution’s Office SharePoint Server 2007 integration.
“We are excited about the rich collaboration capabilities being made available through Telligent’s Community Server Evolution. We believe it will enhance the capabilities of our Office SharePoint Server 2007 based social computing site and ultimately provide greater collaboration within our user community,” says Mark Richardson, Director, Business Innovations Group, Scotiabank.
“Evolution integrates seamlessly with Office SharePoint Server 2007 so line-of-business and IT managers don’t have to learn or invest in other applications. This is only one of the many value-adds Evolution brings to the table,” says Jason Alexander, Chief Technology Officer, Telligent.
”Our competitors are publicly betting against Microsoft’s Office SharePoint Server 2007 platform. We think this is a weak business position, given customer demand for Office SharePoint Technologies,” says Rob Howard, CEO, Telligent. “We instead want to enable our customers to use their existing Office SharePoint Server 2007 investment and intend to deliver deeply integrated value through our Community Server Evolution platform.”
