How Search Amplifies Enterprise Collaboration

  • Christian,

    Great article!

    Similar in spirit to Rumsfeld’s quote, we often put it this way:
    1. Follow — when you are aware of sources of generally relevant information
    2. Search — when you are aware that you have a need for some information now, but don’t know where it is
    3. Discovery (i.e., recommendations) — when you have a need for some information now, but are not even aware you need it and/or that it exists

    In contemporary consumer IT platforms (Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, Amazon, etc.), for which findability is a business model imperative, all three of these capabilities invariably co-exist and complement one another.

    Nice piece Christian and equally succinct comment from Steven. Both worth saving.

    Both of you highlight the reasons perhaps why many Google Searches appear to be showing a downward trend over recent years. Not because people are less interested in any particular subject but because they have myriad other channels to satisfy their query.

  • Great information Christian, thanks for sharing! At Enlyton, the core of our semantic approach to cloud-based search is CONTEXT! Our search solution not only accounts for a document’s meaning; it also interrelates it to other documents to deliver only the most highly-related content.
