Knowledge Management And Enterprise Search
Information is power. Harnessing that power, turning it into knowledge, is critical in today's fast-paced global environment. Organizations need to use the increasing amount of vital content in strategic, efficient ways to create and implement best practices that support operational efficiencies. But because employees are geographically dispersed and experiences are rendered in different languages, important relevant information is seldom accessible to those who need it.
Business Objectives for Knowledge Management and Enterprise Search
Knowledge Management (KM) and Enterprise Search help organizations identify, create, represent, distribute, and adopt insights and experiences. They consist of knowledge, either represented in individuals or rooted in organizational processes or practice. KM efforts usually focus on organizational objectives such as improved performance, competitive advantage, innovation, the sharing of lessons learned, and continuous improvement of the organization.
The major challenge faced by Knowledge Management and Enterprise Search lies in the need to index documents from a variety of sources. These sources include file systems, intranets, document management systems, emails, and databases. After they are indexed, the system must generate a consolidated list of relevance ranked documents from the various sources. Many applications also require that structured data be integrated as part of the search criteria and in the search results. Organizations may also want to set user access and restriction controls to specific document repositories. Since most of the documents found in these repositories are written in multiple languages, the ability to search this multilingual data and render documents in one user preferred language presents an additional dilemma.
The SYSTRAN Solution
SYSTRAN Enterprise Server 7 can easily integrate with any Knowledge Management and Enterprise Search system. All information can be translated and searched in real-time.
Most global organizations have millions of documents indexed in different languages. Traditionally, only those documents written in the same language of a search query are returned to users. Cross-language enterprise search instantly translates queries from one language to one or more languages.
The SYSTRAN solution can also be quickly customized to translate domain-specific information or business objectives, making it usable for every industry.
Integrate SYSTRAN Enterprise Server 7 with a Knowledge Management and Enterprise Search solution to:
- Guarantee that relevant information is available to all corporate users on-demand in their preferred language
- Facilitate user access to insights and experiences throughout the enterprise in any language
- Allow users to search for and find all documents across the enterprise on a specific topic in their native language
- Enable users to automatically view documents in their preferred language or translate them to other languages
- Facilitate cross-language enterprise search
