DOES YOUR CORPORATE SEARCH ENGINE NOT FIT YOUR NEEDS?
The traditional searching technologies do not allow you to exploit your corporate information
The proliferation of information within companies and organizations has provoked an explosion of all types of contents (including videos and images as well as texts), in dozens of formats and languages. This internal information represents the more valuable resource for the companies, but it turns out to be impossible to exploit it due to the difficulty to find, retrieve and reuse all these contents.
Your corporate search engine possibly applies traditional technologies (which deliver you only documents containing one or several keywords). In this case it is very likely that you face some of these problems:
Your search engine delivers huge numbers of irrelevant documents.
You must use a complex search syntax that only technical users can master to carry out precise consultations (ex: "products that are necessary to care for your garden").
If you want to search in documents written in several languages, you must carry out several searches and use in each one the translation of the term you are searching, instead of using this term in your usual language and getting the translation from the search engine.
- You cannot search or navigate with no textual information: images, audio, video, etc., a problem that will worsen as the trend goes towards the predominance of multimedia information.
You cannot classify automatically your documents according to terms taxonomies, or cluster and retrieve documents that deal with the same subject. It is impossible to easily navigate through the information.
- Your searches do not take into consideration the meaning of the terms and do not deliver documents containing synonyms or other related terms (ex: "products needed to care for your garden").
Limitations of the traditional search engines
The limitations are numerous and are only going to worsen due to the unstoppable increase of volumes and disparity of formats and corporate information media:
Time lost by trying to search for and retrieve documents applying a trial and error and brute force approach.
Need to apply specialized human resources that can manually link concepts, identify entities and navigate through the information.
Despite this investment in time and resources, numerous relevant documents are not retrieved nor used because they are in other languages, multimedia formats, etc., which makes impossible or little useful their processing by traditional means.
Difficulty to share and reuse the organization's internal knowledge and experience.
