To make engineering resources and critical content more discoverable at the point of need, Knovel has introduced the Knovel Software Development Kit (SDK) for Microsoft SharePoint. This toolkit allows enterprises using SharePoint as a Knowledge Management System to seamlessly integrate with Knovel’s engineering resources. When users research topics and query internal references on SharePoint, they will also find search results highlighting resources available on Knovel. This integration not only improves productivity, but it creates greater awareness of resources that are available in an enterprise.
Last summer, Knovel launched a new cloud-based platform that was completely re-designed to ensure trusted content is discoverable, answers are actionable and the overall experience is seamless — easily integrating into the engineer’s workflow. With the new platform, Knovel will offer APIs that allow integration with a variety of enterprise systems. Knovel SDK for Microsoft SharePoint is the first offering in a series of integration SDKs in the works.
“To be productive, engineering teams need a variety of trusted resources at their fingertips, and when they spend less time searching, they can focus on product design and execution phases,” said Venu Venugopal, Vice President of Product Management, Elsevier. “We continue to look for ways to embed Knovel within the engineering workflow, and through Knovel – SharePoint integration we open new ways for our users to have Knovel available at their points of need.”
