Concept Searching Survey Finds Intelligent Migration a Key Priority for 2013
Concept Searching conducted a survey in the fourth quarter of 2012 to identify key executive priorities for 2013, specifically around the use of applications that require metadata. The survey included Concept Searching clients as well as the broader marketplace. Although improving search was the number one priority across the board, surprisingly, migration was also high on the respondents’ replies.
Responses from the Concept Searching client base revealed that 33 percent have used the technologies for migration, with 53 percent of the broader marketplace looking for a solution that can intelligently address the migration process. The migration process now requires more sophisticated techniques to ensure compliance objectives are met. Simply moving documents from one repository is not enough, as content that was typically unmanaged will remain unmanaged, continuing to expose an organization to risk. Information cannot be managed from inception to deletion without comprehensive metadata associated with the content, and incorporating the multiple channels and origination points from which content was received.
