Knovel Software Development Kit for Microsoft SharePoint

Knovel has introduced the Knovel Software Development Kit (SDK) for Microsoft SharePoint. This toolkit should allow enterprises using SharePoint as a Knowledge Management System to integrate more easily 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 promises to 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 plans to 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.
