Social Content Proves Valuable to Enterprise Search Solutions
November 5, 2012
Enterprise search is a rapidly evolving area of technology in the corporate world and businesses are wise to learn to collect and reconcile related information quickly. As multiple search capabilities evolve across platforms in the enterprise and online, people need to learn how to make use of each specific capability that is available. A recent article on CMSWire titled “Social Reconnects Enterprise Search” tells us of the need to integrate social search into enterprise search technologies.
The article explains the importance of the addition of social context in addition to an existing enterprise search solution:
“Enterprise search can tap into employee profiles, internal networks, other work-related interactions, and systems usage to personalize search and extend context in order to return the most relevant results. Beyond the usual ‘systems of record,’ social networks and activities provide a great deal of contextual information, especially in terms of topics. The composite of all of these attributes can indicate each person’s professional purview and work focus, which can better connect that person to the right information.”
As social content increases in importance to businesses, reliable and secure enterprise search solutions such as those offered by Intrafind will grow in importance to the overall capabilities of organizations. Be sure to harness all of the tools that are available to fully take advantage of the information at your hands.
