Making Enterprise Search More Relevant and Actionable
Finding the right information quickly and acting upon that information efficiently are critical to success. Though we have seen amazing advancements in the field of internet search — by the likes of Google, Bing, and others — unfortunately these innovations cannot be directly applied to the enterprise, where information is not only stored in Web pages, but also resides in a wide variety of documents, records, content management and email systems, databases, and other technologies.
But much like Google’s revolutionary PageRank™ methodology for internet search — which leverages social behavior to calculate the popularity of a website — BA Insight’s patented technology utilizes the actions that users take to continually tune the search algorithm in order to deliver the most relevant content within the organization. This socially driven intelligence is made possible by BA Insight’s unique content surfacing technology, which enables users to instantly preview — and act upon — all search result content, regardless of its type or where it resides. Once the user identifies relevant content, BA Insight’s technology enables them to quickly assemble composite, fully formatted documents of a variety of formats, without the burden of manual assembly. In addition to making search results instantly pre-viewable and immediately actionable, how the user engages the search results is then used to make future searches more accurate.
The Future of Enterprise Search, Now
BA Insight’s newly patented search technology is the foundation of its Longitude product line, which has been developed to integrate with and optimize the best-in-class search engines available within Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft FAST Search for SharePoint, and Microsoft Search Server Express. Using Longitude, organizations can unlock the full potential of Microsoft’s enterprise search technologies by making results more relevant and actionable, and securely extend these capabilities to any back-end system in order to provide users a single interface with which to search the entire enterprise.
