Enterprise Search Finds a Place in Higher Education

April 13, 2012

Enterprise search is no longer a fad, but a business and organizational necessity.  Other information technology programs in higher education are not specific enough to address the intricacies of enterprise, so enterprise is being added to the curriculum.  The San Francisco Chronicle reports in, “Microsoft SharePoint 2010 and OneNote 2010 Added as Electives for MOS Master Certification.”

“Microsoft SharePoint and OneNote are both integral parts of the MOS 2010 certification suite – the world’s most recognized, standards-based credential chosen by individuals seeking to validate their skills on Microsoft Office. MOS 2010 is the next generation of Microsoft’s industry-leading business certification program that accounts for the delivery of over one million certification exams annually.”

While the certification is offered through Microsoft, outside the confines of traditional higher education, it is a validation of the importance the industry places on enterprise and SharePoint knowledge.

While everyone is made better by increased knowledge and understanding, we wonder if the training is necessary for everyone or if it most users could instead consider the addition of a third-party solution to make enterprise simpler.  Fabasoft Mindbreeze is one such third-party offering.  Their suite of solutions is optimized for user experience, efficiency, and simplicity.

Hermann Löberbauer of Ferngas AG (Austria) offers the following endorsement of Fabasoft Mindbreeze products:

“We have been using Mindbreeze for fast information search since 2005, starting with the desktop version for individual workstations. Now we use the Enterprise Search solution throughout the company. Our knowledge base currently comprises more than 10 million documents from various data sources, plus the captured metadata. Finding the relevant information in file systems or Microsoft Exchange without Mindbreeze would be very time consuming.”

Training is good, but sometimes costly.  Consider taking an easier way out and explore smart third-party offerings from Fabasoft Mindbreeze.
