Latest Release of Inmagic Presto Strengthens Social Knowledge Network Capabilities for Enterprise Users

New Features Enhance Productivity, Usability, and Further Integrate with External Applications Including SharePoint

WOBURN, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Inmagic® has launched the latest release of Inmagic® Presto, an application that enables non-technical business users to create and manage Social Knowledge Networks (SKN). Presto 3.3 incorporates significant enhancements to productivity, usability, and security, and deepens integration with Microsoft® SharePoint®, giving users bidirectional query and access capabilities.

Social Knowledge Networks span enterprise silos to merge relevant content, search, and community to address high-value business processes or topics. Subject experts and the wisdom of the community surface valuable content via blogs, comments, and discussions. Because staff spends less time hunting for corporate knowledge, projects are completed faster, risks are lowered, and innovation can thrive.

“We needed a product that offered the flexibility to manage the different types of content that we are delivering to the sector. Presto gives us that flexibility,” says Eric Howell, Chairman of the OpenFields Project. “Coupled with its Web 2.0 features, Presto aligns well with our need to interact with users when they visit OpenFields and download resources, while offering a rich user experience.” OpenFields leverages the powerful Presto platform to deliver knowledge transfer items to practitioners, students, and researchers in the British agricultural and environmental sectors.

Enhanced Presto 3.3 capabilities include:
  • Improved SharePoint compatibility: Search SharePoint content from Presto (and vice versa) for broader information access.
  • Faster time-to-value: New methodology significantly improves deployment and performance.
  • Improved user experience: RSS feed enhancements include a customizable display with descriptions, images, and metadata details.
  • Simpler federated search management: Users can easily create federated search adapters to access external content such as subscriptions, journals, and external research information.
  • Robust security: Reduces risk through better security and management of the SKN.
  • Enhanced community and profiles: “People” are a searchable content type. Additional profile customization and personalization capabilities make finding subject matter experts easy.
  • More efficient management and administration: Home page cloning enhances the process of adding users and managing a SKN.
“Deriving value from new Enterprise 2.0 technologies and Social Knowledge Networks begins with a clear understanding of business objective and the core business process being addressed,” says Bob Warren, Vice President of Products at Inmagic. “Usability, time-to-value, and the ability to integrate with existing technologies are essential when implementing a social knowledge management solution. Presto is a robust application that our customers rely on to ensure their knowledge is properly accessed, vetted, and managed.”

Enterprise customers using Presto for a faster and more cost-effective way to integrate content with human assets, improve collaboration, and increase end-user and organizational productivity, include ACLU, Canadian Tax Foundation, City of Edmonton, Laureate Education, Maple Leaf Foods, NASA, OpenFields, Owens Corning, USAID, and Wyeth Consumer Healthcare (now Pfizer).
