Moving From Enterprise Search to Cognitive Exploration
November 20, 2017
The good news is that enterprise search has been around for decades and usually does an adequate job. The bad news is that the adequate job only provides lists of search results and a way to navigate and review the results.
Finding documents that contain certain keywords? Check. Searching relational databases? Check. Coordinating search results from multiple internal data stores? Check. Searching content outside the company, such as premium information services? Check.
Providing deep content analytics with mature supporting tools? Providing unified information applications, and collaboration? Providing advanced cognitive capabilities? Those capabilities remain out of reach for the majority of players in the enterprise search arena.
