Insightful Article on the Value of Search as a Key Component in Information Governance
Concept Searching is pleased to announce the publication, in the KMWorld Intelligent Search and Information Access Best Practices White Paper, of the article ‘Can Intelligent Search Solve Information Governance Challenges.’
Concept Searching has focused on information governance for over four years. Information governance, although currently a highly covered topic with the media and analysts, is a complicated and long-term investment and process, with little tangible ROI. This article focuses on search as a key component of information governance that can be deployed to immediately improve organizational performance and, at the same time, act as a building block to set information governance in motion.
Martin Garland, President of Concept Searching, commented, “Search is no longer a nice to have, but is one of the most critical tools used by all users within an organization. Most search engines do not accommodate the way in which different users search, therefore information cannot be found. Now, issues such as potential security breaches and non-compliance are exposed during the search process. Search must be included in a solid information governance plan, and gains in productivity, better decision making, and risk reduction are all quantifiable business benefits that can be achieved immediately.”
