Enterprise Search centralizes your Search
Do you recognize this situation? You are looking for an example of a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) to copy it into a new one. You know that there are several of those agreements in your organization’s content systems. But where do you look?
In your mail box! You know that you received a mail with an NDA some time ago. So you use the search of your mail client to look for it. But you can’t find it.
Next you look in your company’s Document Management System! Can’t find it!
In the CRM application? In the shared folder with legal documents?
How long would you keep on looking? I used to give up after the second application and would interrupt a colleague to ask him/her.
How often does this happen to you? To your colleagues? In your entire organization.
In a world where unstructured information in mails, documents, applications, etc. is continuously growing, this situation cannot be tolerated anymore. The (hidden) cost of time lost in searching and not finding, the hidden cost of disturbing colleagues in their daily work is skyrocketing.
That is why ‘Enterprise Search’ should be an essential part of every Enterprise IT Architecture. It is time to implement one central search function that operates across various sources of unstructured content in the organization. One place the user can go to. One place where he or she can search and find!
