“In the world of IT, the term agile means the ability to respond quickly with all information easily accesible and enriched to enable business executives to make effective decisions,” notes Arnold IT.
Our society is facing a data and content overload. Raw data are on the rise, and just as search is used for personal needs, the search feature is essential in business and its everyday applications. The digital information required by some organizations can be overwhelming, and organizations need a solution to help cope with the excess of data.
“The flood of data is reaching new highs daily and the technology revolution is upon us. In order to keep up, businesses need to utilize tools to help them adapt,” says Jennifer Shockley.
On the top of this, data and content are disseminated and contained in various silos. The approach disables and impairs delivery of timely, comprehensive and relevant information which is needed by business workers.
Developing and succeeding with the implementation an effective information strategy for an organization can be challenging. A flawed search system erodes employee and business productivity. A loss of compliance with regulatory guidelines increases operational risk. A flowed search implementation boosts infrastructure management costs.
Enterprise search is the backbone of an information-centric organization. An Agile Enterprise Search Infrastructure or ASI can help businesses sort through the confusion from an endless and steadily rising influx of data and content, transforming information chaos into an information asset.
“The more easily accessible information is to the company, the more realistic the expectation of maintaining a functional and productive system. Agility stems from access and findability. BI solutions will excel when proper search infrastructure is in place”, states Arnold IT team.
Search is not a new marketing buzz word. The search feature exists within any business applications but remains specialized and specific to each silo. Employees have to learn to use different search systems due to the non-standardized search systems for each silo. The cost of an ineffective search architecture consumes time at a prodigious rate.
Arnold IT teams notes the necessity, beyond agility whithin a team, to get “solutions that also incorporate mobility and a focus on the user experience, in order to maintain the flexibility and vigiliance required of agility, business professionals need”.
