PITTSBURGH -- Vivisimo (, a leading provider of enterprise search software and expertise, today debuts social search for the enterprise with the introduction of the Vivisimo Velocity 6.0 enterprise search platform. Available within 45 days, Velocity will enable enterprises to increase collaboration among workers, accelerate innovation, and gain valuable insight into the collective intelligence of their organizations.

Traditionally, the lifecycle of an enterprise search query would consist of reading, digesting and re-purposing content. Velocity 6.0 extends the power of enterprise search by enabling users to save, share and take action on search results to foster collaboration and new levels of communication within the organization. By marrying popular Web 2.0 concepts, such as social search and networking, virtual folders, tagging and content mash-ups, with the power of enterprise search, Velocity 6.0 is empowering users to easily leverage the vast amount of human knowledge within their own organizations.

Velocity 6.0 harnesses the human knowledge about content resident in an organization with social tagging by giving end-users the ability to vote on or rate search results using a numerical scale. This combined insight into the usefulness of information can be used to adjust relevancy of results in real-time, benefiting everyone else in the organization, or can be used to convey feedback to others. Furthermore, Velocity 6.0 empowers users to tag search results with keywords, providing a more efficient and faster search experience.

Enabling users to vote on, rate, tag, save and share content within the search interface is just the first step in creating a collaborative information-enriching environment. Velocity 6.0 allows users to add their own knowledge about information found via search directly into the search result itself in the form of free-text annotation. Rather than sending an email with a file attachment to colleagues with commentary about a document, users can have a dialogue about content right within the search interface. And social bookmarking within Velocity 6.0 allows users to save search results into virtual folders for future reference and use or to share with others, such as a project team.

Vivisimo Velocity 6.0 is the next logical step forward for enterprise search as it makes the inevitable shift from being a productivy enhancing tool to an open-ended collaborative application that makes the best use of the collective intelligence of the enterprise,” said Lynda Moulton, lead analyst, Gilbane Group. “Today’s announcement marks an historical benchmark in the evolution of enterprise search because it is first to take full advantage of the benefits Web 2.0 technologies bring to knowledge workers across an enterprise.”Vivisimo Inc.
