BA Insight has introduced support for SharePoint 2016 and cloud hybrid search with SharePoint 2016. KM World brought this news to us in their article, “BA Insight Announces Support for SharePoint 2016.”

Hybrid is a key part of SharePoint 2016 and taking advantage of the cloud experience is a strong benefit. BA is providing its existing customers with a “smooth upgrade path” to take advantage of Microsoft’s new capabilities. Organizations using SharePoint and Office 365 can combine SharePoint 2016, 2013, 2010, and Office 365. Organizations using SharePoint 2016 can now include content from outside of SharePoint in their intranets, automatically add consistent metadata, and use pre-built applications from BA Insight to deliver “an internet-like experience” to their users. Users of Office 365 can also create hybrid configurations that include content from different line-of-business systems.

All this promises to boost productivity. That alone is incentive for organizations to look for improved technology.
