Engineering Search – Breaking the Mold
So what is engineering search? This blog is the first in a series about Concept Searching’s Engineering Search solution. The solution has been created by thinking outside the box and is ground breaking, at least to us, to our key engineering services partner, and to our clients. Does the approach apply only to engineering? No, it applies to any industry or group of professionals with a requirement to connect the dots, and fast. It is simply using our technology to cater to the needs of engineering professionals. No, this is not a vendor pitch. It is relevant to those who are search professionals, or industry-specific professionals, such as engineering and healthcare, and discusses an interesting and proven approach.
The results achieved using this solution are innovative, and have made many an engineer happy. What does it do? The secure Engineering Search solution is a radical, content-agnostic and global engineering search solution. Leveraging a single search index platform, it unifies, displays, analyzes, visualizes, and applies artificial intelligence, to a globally managed and neutralized set of structured and unstructured content within an organization, securely and in near real-time, in other words, quicker than two seconds. What’s the end result? A unified view of all artifacts pertinent and relevant to the task at hand. Engineers can now search across any and all content sources and applications, to retrieve only what is relevant.
For those who don’t know about our technology, we provide automatic multi-term metadata generation, auto-classification, and taxonomy management tools. One of the strengths is that the technology is rapidly deployed and easy to use. conceptTaxonomyManager, our taxonomy component, is designed for use by subject-matter experts, eliminating the need for involvement by the IT team. It enables professionals to tune the taxonomy, or a portion of it, in order to increase precision with no loss of recall, which is extremely important in successful search.
Our next blog will go into a bit more detail about the technical aspects of the Engineering Search solution. As a homework assignment, please watch our demo of the solution. If it whets your appetite, please feel free to reach out for a more in-depth demo of the solution.
