Performance optimization High performance integration with multi-tasking Native SharePoint is architected to limit throughput against their Web Service interfaces which can be a challenge when creating or restructuring content on a relative large scale. With Ontolica Fusion high performance in content operations are supported by multi-tasking which enables configurable number of parallel transfer sessions for maximum possible throughput.
No coding and no Farm installed software Ontolica Fusion is designed with easy and quick implementation in mind requiring no installation on the SharePoint Farm. Further to get started integrating enterprise data and content with SharePoint no programming is required as all connection setup and configuration are managed in a GUI based administration interface.
Monitoring and performance
Advanced database integration and job scheduling Native integration to Oracle, DB2, Sybase and MS SQL beyond basic BCS integration To connect SQL data bases to SharePoint in real life scenarios are not a trivial task. Especially when the its non-Microsoft data bases. In addition, Ontolica Fusion provides integration with optimized native database drivers to Oracle, DB2, Sybase, and MS SQL for advanced and scalable business and meta data integration.
Easy installation and management of SharePoint Mass create, update, copy, move, and delete content in batches To make large scale changes to content in SharePoint can be a challenge and to manipulate thousands or millions of documents or list items across one or more SharePoint Farms are often quite time consuming. Ontolica Fusion enables mass batch changes, as well as the ability to move and copy content across the same or multiple farms. This functionality is supported by multi-tasking and automatic throttling against SharePoint APIs.
Full development sandbox and separate production environment To implement enterprise integration often requires careful testing before deployment which can be challenging and resource demanding in order to reflect realistic production environments. Ontolica Fusion includes respectively development, test and production environments with ability to transparently move integration jobs between environments. Integration jobs are self-contained with all configuration data making it easy to promote jobs into production.
Enterprise class audit trails and alerting Integration of business information is typically critical to end-users who use the information to make business decisions. Ontolica Fusion delivers robust transaction level logging in an extensive audit trail for monitoring of all integration jobs across all source systems. The audit trail is “smart” to automatically structure integration job hierarchically based on source for easy browsing of even very large log files. Automatic alerts can be setup based on rules triggered for example on types, thresholds or numbers of errors or warnings.
Unlimited batch scheduling of integration jobs The timing of integration jobs can be important to keep information fresh and up to date. With a Batch Service Ontolica Fusion enables flexible scheduling of an unlimited number of jobs to be run in batch. Integration job can run with any frequency and scheduling can be based on simple time intervals as well as on dynamic rules where next run can be based on integration results from the current job. The Batch Service can optionally run on separate servers for separation and scalability.
