Delphi Wins MetaHero Migration Award at Ignite with Concept Searching and Microsoft Solutions
Congratulations to the Delphi team on its award for meeting complex migration issues with a unique hybrid search solution.
Delphi, the leading global supplier of automotive parts, needed to provide business tools to improve its enterprise-wide search and collaboration experience, through the tagging, classification, and reduction of discrete pieces of information that business users had to sort through daily.
Using intelligent migration, Delphi migrated 20 million documents to the Office 365 dedicated vNext platform, live just two weeks after availability of Microsoft cloud hybrid search – reducing IT costs in the digital workplace.
Delphi achieved this challenging goal with management consulting expertise from Steve Smith, Principal Consultant, and with Concept Searching as the technology software provider that enabled multi-term metadata generation, auto-classification, taxonomy management, and hybrid search improvements through conceptClassifier for Office 365 and conceptClassifier for Hybrid Search.
This joint endeavor delivered what is believed to be the world’s first and largest Office 365 Hybrid Search Service Application in production. Professional services included knowledge, planning, optimization, and ingenuity, using on-premises Search 2013, which searches over 30 content sources.
Concept Searching’s conceptClassifier for Office 365 platform was used in the Azure environment, to combine both internal and external sources. Microsoft’s Office 365 Hybrid Search and Concept Searching’s new utility, conceptClassifier for Hybrid Search, were deployed for over 40,000 users.
Over 20 million documents were migrated using conceptClassifier for Office 365, allowing Delphi to decommission its 50 plus server on-premises search environment.
