Can you live without enterprise search? Chances are you already do.
Digital content for the past ten years has been growing at unprecedented rates. File systems easily can grow 40% per year, depending on the industry, and that rate is dwarfed when considering email systems, hard drives, file shares, collaboration output, content management systems, corporate blogs, wikis and databases. Over 85% of relevant documents are never retrieved in search, and less than 50% of content is correctly tagged or efficiently searchable. This reduces the value of organizational knowledge assets where useless work in process, duplicated content, and documents of no value prohibits the retrieval of pertinent information.
The business imperatives driving these issues are:
- End users do not tag content correctly, if at all
- Difficult to use records management and document tagging procedures when saving documents
- Hard to use and often complicated search features
- Poor performance
- Irrelevant results
- Lack of enterprise adoption
Whether you are looking to improve your existing search engine or replace it, Concept Searching technologies provide the solution you are looking for. Through the automatic semantic metadata generation as content is created or ingested the rich concepts can be used by either your existing search solution, such as SharePoint, FAST, or Google Search Appliance, or you can opt to use conceptSearch, an enterprise scalable search engine.
