Real-time analytics and discovery for big data Posted May 03, 2013

The inability to identify the value in unstructured content is the primary challenge in any application that requires the use of metadata. If you aren't managing it, you won't find it. At the most basic level, enterprise search has become inadequate. Bells and whistles abound but the unsolved problem still exists. Search cannot find and deliver relevant information in the right context, at the right time. This laissez-faire approach, starting with executive management on down, illustrates the inability of organizations to elevate search to a key component and critical enabler for improving business outcomes. An information governance approach that creates the infrastructure framework to encompass automated intelligent metadata generation, auto-classification, and the use of goal- and mission-aligned taxonomies is required. . . .

Big data. Unstructured data. Semi-structured data. Data is all over the technology news, and for good reason. It is overwhelming organizations, requiring them to find new ways to operate, stay competitive, better serve their customers and bring new products to market faster.

Companies are finding themselves with piles of information within multiple channels, locked away in silos-different systems, different departments, different geographies and different data types, making it impossible to connect the dots and make sense of critical business information.

Hidden inside streams of structured and unstructured data across cloud, social and on-premise systems are information relationships that answer questions employees haven't even thought to ask, but need to be asking. . . .

"Ninety percent of the world's data has been created in just the last two years. But when it comes to information, there is no immediate benefit to simply amassing exabytes of content. The real gains come when organizations are able to translate, understand and apply the insight that is contained within this flood of information.

One of the main challenges posed by today's information explosion is that content is fragmented into disparate "silos," such as file servers, collaboration suites, email systems and other repository types. Also, more information is quickly migrating to the cloud. In this scenario, traditional KM systems fall short because they are not equipped to derive the intelligence contained in this information. . . ."

"Writing about enterprise search is not the cakewalk it used to be. With customers demanding more business value, and vendors responding by becoming more "purpose-driven" and specialized, the search market has fragmented into a series of business applications that only opaquely rely on "the search engine" to accomplish their tasks. I often call it "the technology arc." At first, all you have to do is say "enterprise search," and you have the attention of the users and the investors. Then after a while, you have to ask, "What can this new technology do for me?" Then after a while and the shine off the lily (or however that expression goes), you need to ask, "Where is the business process improvement..." Posted April 30, 2013

Search has to be more than finding documents. It needs to integrate complex content from multiple sources and provide the output as an information resource to decision makers. Posted March 31, 2013

We live in the information age when, in theory, millions of documents sit at our fingertips and are only a search away. In our personal lives, where "to Google" has become a common verb, this is certainly true—but in our professional lives, access to enterprise information is far less certain.

Any large organization builds up a huge amount of information, most of it as unstructured content, each week—and many have archives going back years or even decades. All this information could be used to provide background for proposals and projects, to inform business relationships, to enable collaboration, to avoid repetition of research, to repurpose content and generally to streamline. . . .
Posted March 26, 2013

We have entered the era of "big content" and there is no end in sight to the rapid growth of content. Analyst estimates have pegged the total amount of content in 2020 to blow past 40 zettabytes (ZB)—a figure that is difficult for even the most seasoned IT professional to wrap his head around. Because SharePoint has evolved into the content management platform of choice, a majority of this content will be stored, managed and organized within your SharePoint environment. When it comes to SharePoint, myriad problems arise when you deal with growing content across multiple farms in multiple physical locations. How can you effectively and efficiently manage terabytes of business content? Posted March 26, 2013
