BA Insight Introduces New SharePoint Connectors for Legal Industry; Complete Connector Library Provides Most Comprehensive Client and Matter Search BA Insight provides legal professionals with unparalleled access to information regardless of where it resides; company reports 25 new legal customers so far in 2012

WASHINGTON, Aug. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- From the ILTA 2012 Conference, BA Insight, the leader in agile information integration, today announced that it has added to its library three new SharePoint Connectors for the legal industry, expanding what was already the most comprehensive stack for connecting SharePoint to commonly used legal technology systems. In fact, BA Insight now integrates with virtually all legal technology systems.

BA Insight's SharePoint Connectors are a foundational element of its TotalView for Legal solution, the industry's first packaged Search-Based Application (SBA) for SharePoint. Whether structured or unstructured, on-premise or in the cloud, Connectors enable relevant information from document and records management, practice management, email, billing and CRM systems to be surfaced in an intuitive way to more efficiently resolve client matters. TotalView for Legal sits on top of Microsoft SharePoint and FAST Search to securely integrate, normalize and enrich content from across all enterprise systems, enabling users to engage with this content in a rich, application-style environment optimized for their specific job role, preferences and objectives.

By providing these Connectors out of the box, BA Insight eliminates the need for legal organizations to undertake costly and complex custom coding either on their own or with the help of a systems integration firm.

The newest BA Insight Connectors are for NetDocuments, KnowledgeMill OnePlace and Practical Law. Other Connectors in the legal library include:

  • Aderant
  • Autonomy EAS
  • Autonomy Worksite
  • Elite Prolaw
  • IBM Lotus Notes
  • LexisNexis Interaction CRM
  • Microsoft Dynamics CRM
  • Microsoft Exchange
  • Microsoft SharePoint Online
  • OpenText Hummingbird / eDocs DM
  • OpenText LegalKEY / eDocs RM
  • Real Practice
  • Symantex EVault
  • Universal SQL Connector for Proprietary Systems
  • Thomson Reuters West km

BA Insight has years of experience in the legal market and has signed 25 new legal customers in 2012 alone. Clients include DLA Piper, Dorsey Whitney, Fenwick & West, Kelley Drye, Lewis Silkin and Tory's. With its newly expanded Connector stack and TotalView for Legal, BA Insight can now meet virtually all law firm search needs. 

"BA Insight's Connector framework was critical to providing our legal professionals with an effective means to search our OpenText [formerly Hummingbird] DM5 document store from within SharePoint, allowing them to quickly retrieve the information they need," said Mark Gerow, Director of Applications & Business Process of Fenwick & West. "Since we first deployed their connector for DM5 it has worked flawlessly, and BA Insight has become a trusted resource both for their products and for advice regarding SharePoint Search in general."

"Legal firms have unique needs when it comes to information management," said Guy Mounier, CEO and Chairman of BA Insight. "BA Insight's Connectors and TotalView for Legal incorporate years of learning and input from dozens of our legal clients. We're very proud of the results, and pleased with the very positive feedback we've received from the legal community."
