Many organisations today have accumulated multiple Enterprise Content Management systems (ECM) or Document Management systems (DM) as a result of mergers, re-organisations and localised solutions. Business has become more collaborative than ever before and this has led to additional Systems of Engagement that will overlay and complement Systems of Record (typical ECM & DM Systems). With so many data repositories business information must be replicated throughout each one while ensuring that there are no inconsistencies or redundancies.
As business data is captured the ability to be able to identify, map and enrich all the content across the various repositories becomes very labour intensive, with end users manually re-keying the same data into disparate systems. Where metadata is missing or non-standard there can be exceptions in the process. This is why effective document management software is so crucial to the continued growth of many businesses.
Large portions of the information generated today is unstructured and user generated – living in blogs, wiki discussions, customer support forums, product review sites, etc. Gathering this information is one problem but indexing this content meaningfully is another. Existing Data Harvesting tools do not offer an easy way to enrich the content by applying metadata based on rules that are meaningful to your business and will ensure the best search results.
