Google, the giant in Web search, introduced a service that allows friends to "see" one another's location on their respective mobile devices. The service, a component of Google's social networking services, has different facets. The Latitude feature plots friends on a Google Map. The Connect feature makes it easy to join a community. Those new offerings keep Google in step with similar offerings from online vendors designed for the young and those young at heart. Google and have taken an important step... Posted July 03, 2009

Science fiction buffs know about the "tractor beam." A starship floats without power. A space tug locks onto the crippled star cruiser with a magnetic beam. The space tug reels in the crippled starship the way a fisherman lands a rainbow trout.Google's enterprise tractor beam is its App Engine. The fish are enterprise customers. Unlike the science fiction tractor beam, the Google beam is quite real and starting to reel in the enterprise catch... Posted June 01, 2009

How many times have you searched the Web and received a laundry list of 34,000 hits? Have you ever looked beyond the first page or two of search results? Probably not. Much like a search on the public Web, sifting through the vast amounts of unstructured data in your enterprise content management (ECM) system can be an overwhelming and fruitless process.
Most company data is unstructured, and much of it often resides in enterprise content management systems. If it is leveraged properly, this valuable information can help your company improve customer satisfaction, gain competitive advantage, make better decisions and improve the overall productivity of knowledge and other workers. But the sheer volume of data housed in these repositories can render the information useless if your company doesn't have the tools to not only access this information, but also to analyze and extract relevant information...

Scads of words have been written about "enterprise search," "knowledge management," "information access," etc. In fact, I am responsible for a scad or two myself.And, of course, it makes sense: When 90% of the information your company possesses is in the form of unstructured text files and email, plus more-or-less formal formats (contracts, PowerPoints, legal documents and marketing material, etc.), it's painfully obvious that tools to access that content will emerge as key components of the knowledge-worker toolset.
But what HASN'T been covered quite as well are the text-mining and analytic tools that exist to find content—and the many relationships between content objects—that are not yet part of the average, daily knowledge worker's regimen.The way it's often been put is this:SEARCH is useful when you know basically what it is you're looking for. A specific email... a contract for a specific deal...

...The most interesting development for me in the last month or two is Google's Voice service. In March, Google made available a service that offers users a single telephone number and a bevy of features. Google's interest in telecommunications, mobile devices and on-the-go search reaches back to the company's earliest days. Few know that Google co-founder Sergey Brin is the inventor of one of Google's patents filed in February 2001, "Voice Interface for a Search Engine," US7027987... Posted May 01, 2009

When it comes to data sharing by law enforcement agencies, the primary obstacles are not usually technological, but territorial. Agencies understandably want to retain authority over areas, both geographical and functional, for which they are held responsible.
