AT PDC 2009, Microsoft demonstrated a new technology called “Pivot,” that makes it easier to interact with massive amounts of data in ways that’re powerful, informative, and fun. The application highlights a new way of searching using a series of linked data. The app is a .NET client which uses Seadragon and Deep Zoom collections. Microsoft's trident layout engine (MSHTML) or better known as Internet Explorer is also used in the app. Pivot functions over HTTP and all communication works based on how web is today. In most cases content’s nothing more than files being served by web servers. The interface is impressive and result is going from many things in a search down to a few things thanks to filtering and being able to see clear patterns amongst that data. Pivots main feature is "collections", they combine large groups of similar items on Internet, so you can view relationships between individual pieces of information in a new way. By visualizing hidden patterns, Pivot allows users to interact with thousands of pieces of data in a unique way.
