BluePoint Enterprise Search Strategy
Does your organisation have an enterprise wide search strategy in place?
Quick access to information is of strategic importance in the Information Economy. In our experience, the fault does not lay with the technology; rather, most organisations have failed to take a strategic approach to enterprise findability. Many implement search in one way or another, but few do it with the thorough thought needed for the solution to leverage the expected value or the expected “return on information”.
BluePoint understands “information overload” is a reality for many organisations and it is becoming expensive to manage the complexity. Fortunately, effective enterprise findability can help people navigate that reality, giving them the information they need to speed decisions and productively conduct their work. Developing a findability strategy is a first step towards turning the information overload into an information asset, and moving from a search box on the intranet to a full-fledged enterprise solution is where we can help you.
We believe a search strategy is a good vehicle to plan, priorities and make informed decisions regarding search investments and consequently obtaining an adequate budget to reach the desired effects stated in your search strategy.
Why Produce a Search Strategy?
Companies who proactively pursue a search strategy benefit in a number of ways:
- Enhanced knowledge worker productivity: The people who make the greatest contribution to your business growth become more productive and enthusiastic
- Corporate agility is improved: Evolving circumstances and market conditions are easier to exploit with fast, effective and secure access to corporate knowledge
- Lower total cost of ownership for search systems: Relevant content, relevant results by eliminating low recall content
