Cross Web App aggregation and caching web part is
Having been a SharePoint Admin for five years I know how tempermental SharePoint can be when installing new code. Installation of the List Aggregator and Enchanced Caching tool was the easiest installation and configuartion I have ever done.
This product is truly amazing. It is SharePoint's site aggregator on steroids. We were able to aggregate 17 web applications in our farm to one single view of data for our executives. Aggregation of this data takes less than a minute and displays in a user friendly look and feel.
provides real time data at the item level while caches at the view level
easy to use and configure
