A hybrid intranet offers a stable and effective way of taking on a migration to the cloud, while mitigating risk. A hybrid system is one that uses both on-premises and cloud services to deliver an integrated solution. It in effect combines a private traditional system, with a publicaly hosted cloud instance, sometimes offering the best of both worlds. A Unily Hub intranet offers a Hybrid option, allowing you to deploy an innovative cloud intranet whilst maintaining your on premises sites.
Unily takes direct advantage of Hybrid Search capabilities to crawl content from varying sources, for example SharePoint Server 2016 and Office 365 into a single, streamlined repository. This ensures that users have access to everything they need from one location, dramatically improving efficiency and the experience for the user. Many of Unily’s content and documents widgets are built using Search services provided by Office 365 and SharePoint Online, meaning that Unily can inherently take advantage of the Hybrid Search features.
