Tacit Knowledge Systems, Inc. announced the availability of “Tacit ESP (Expertise Search for Portals),” a new product designed to help companies manage business complexity more effectively by delivering the full human ingenuity of the enterprise through a corporate portal. Tacit ESP is a simple expertise automation solution that installs alongside an Enterprise Information Portal (EIP), infers expertise from published content, and adds “people search” capabilities to the portal. By putting “people in the portal,” portal users can access the expertise of others when the content in the portal alone does not fully address their needs. Tacit ESP Plus adds the capability to “profile” expertise using profile management facilities. The Tacit Expertise Portlet (for Lotus Development Corporation’s K-Station) combines expertise with the portal’s information and focuses on “people-to-people” connections. The Tacit Expertise Gadget (for the Plumtree Corporate Portal) combines expertise with the portal’s information to ensure that all of the enterprise’s available resources are made available to every individual through a single point of access. Tacit KnowledgeMail 2.0 delivers full expertise automation through tight integration with enterprise e-mail, Web Browsers, and the Windows Desktop; and Tacit Expertise Toolkit allows corporate and commercial application developers to access the Tacit Server to develop custom Web-based or proprietary expertise automation solutions through XML APIs. The software is sold on a server and client-access basis. Enterprise pricing is available. www.tacit.com
