Taking the Pain Out of Information Retrieval: One Organization’s Quest for a Unified Search Experience

Picture this: You’re looking for competitive intelligence materials on a tight deadline. To get all the required information, you must search through eight databases – separately piecing together all the different content required from each repository.

This was the challenge a knowledge management director faced at a specialty biopharmaceutical company. We’ve dubbed this the “Where’s My Stuff” conundrum. Does it sound familiar?

If the “Where’s My Stuff” conundrum is a challenge your organization faces, learn how this knowledge manager set out to make her organization’s search process more user-friendly.
