Microsoft's go-to partner for advanced search technologies, BA Insight enables customers to leverage their investments in SharePoint, FAST Search.  Longitude Connectors provide knowledge workers with a single point of access to all information, people, and expertise across the enterprise using highly targeted and easy to deploy business applications.  The key benefit is that knowledge workers can access line of business information enterprise-wide in a single, unified view.  With rapid and cost-effective out-of-the-box deployment, comprehensive security-mapping, and full Active Directory integration, Longitude Connectors maximize the ROI of an organization's ERP, CRM, ECM and messaging systems by securely unlocking and surfacing this information in a straight forward and actionable format.

"With significant new capabilities in team collaboration, social and web content management, SharePoint 2013 is positioned to manage even more of the Enterprise's core business processes," said Guy Mounier, Chief Executive Officer of BA Insight.  "Integrating line of business information within SharePoint is fundamental to this and for our customers moving to SharePoint 2013, full compatibility of our connectors is essential."

"Among the many features of SharePoint 2013 is a powerful and agile enterprise search engine," said Mikael Svenson, SharePoint MVP and author of the Microsoft Press book "Working with Microsoft FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint."  "With BA Insight's library of Longitude Connectors for SharePoint 2013, organizations can now securely extend these search capabilities across all of their line-of-business systems, enabling truly enterprise-wide information access, more effective collaboration, and greater productivity."
