MicroLink Autonomy Integration Suite for SharePoint Allows Clients to Utilize Autonomy IDOL 7 and SharePoint in a Unified Platform

VIENNA, VA--(Marketwire - September 10, 2008) - MicroLink, LLC, the 2007 Autonomy Global Partner of the Year and 2007 Microsoft Federal Partner of the Year, announced the release of MicroLink Autonomy Integration Suite (AIS) for SharePoint 2003/2007, which consists of six web parts that integrate Autonomy's Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL) server with Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS). This integration allows SharePoint users to leverage Autonomy's information discovery capability and automated features in a unified platform.

MicroLink's Autonomy Integration Suite for SharePoint consists of custom web parts that create more efficient access to the search capabilities of Autonomy's IDOL server from within SharePoint. With interfaces familiar to SharePoint users, AIS makes it possible for organizations to process digital content automatically, share data and synchronize with other data webparts.

"Independently, IDOL and SharePoint are the platform standards for enterprise search and collaboration in our industry," said David Truitt, president and CEO of MicroLink. "As a strategic partner with technology expertise in both applications, and an in-depth understanding of our customers' business needs, MicroLink is in a unique position to develop and deploy AIS. Customers who have taken advantage of this unique platform have doubled the benefits of both solutions and maximized their return on their Autonomy and SharePoint investments. AIS's biggest benefit is that it delivers more efficient access to important data and facilitates collaboration among knowledge workers."

Currently being implemented in both federal government and Fortune 500 client sites, AIS comprises Search and Retrieval, Agents, Profiling, Web Channels, Clustering, and Community Collaboration. AIS also improves expertise search and incorporates full document level security.

Key Features of AIS:

--  Federated search capabilities for SharePoint, enabling customers to
    index and search all content across the entire enterprise and repositories
    inside and outside the SharePoint environment
--  Custom Web Parts that enable access to the capabilities of Autonomy's
    IDOL platform from within Microsoft's SharePoint Portal Server
--  Data connections for each web part that allows data sharing and
    synchronization between parts
--  For the end user, a singular interface that is consistent with the
    SharePoint user experience
