nGage 3.0 for Microsoft Office SharePoint 2007 launches
OI Software Ltd today launched version 3.0 of nGage, the innovative Enterprise Social Application suite built specifically for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007
nGage leverages and extends Microsoft Office SharePoint 2007 to provide highly viral social networking functionality, strong support for collaborative innovation and a striking reputation management system. And its Business Intelligence facilities allow leaders to track usage/behavioural trends - and Internal Communicators to celebrate an organization having great conversations with itself.
So what's new with 3.0? Paul Henry, OI Software's Founder and CEO, says "People have always been impressed with even the earliest versions of nGage. But many also found it quite scary. nGage is now massively, simply, and continuously configurable. Now you can gradually introduce new ways of collaborating - and make sure users are comfortable before taking the application to the next level. nGage has all the rich functionality you could ask for from a social application suite. But now you can use it to orchestrate change at whatever pace and in whatever directions you choose."
OI Software's Chief Technical Officer, Pete Denness, commented, "Our commitment to Microsoft SharePoint Server as a platform for application development is clearly visible in our latest v3.0 release. nGage is architected to utilise the best parts of the SharePoint platform and extend it with cutting edge technologies such as Silverlight, AJAX and WCF." He continues, "And our new integration with People Search is sure to open a few eyes in terms of what's possible with this approach to application development."
nGage is the most complete and coherent Enterprise Social Application suite. It's the only one that specifically drives the adoption of and the ROI in SharePoint, the only one that automatically inherits the themes and styles of an existing SharePoint deployment - and the first to prove that SharePoint can and will be the definitive platform for Enterprise 2.0 strategies.
