Businesses trying to create sensible and easy to navigate information environments have to face off against dual disruptive forces. Information is always pouring in, much of it unstructured content - including emails, .pdfs, productivity app data and social media streams - meaning the sheer amount of data is constantly on the rise. Coupled with this is the fact that the existing information is varied in its own right, and every update to software means less of the programs actually used to create that data will still be in service, making legacy content harder to find. It's difficult to support an expensive and disruptive migration for old data. Dealing with data is monopolizing the attention of knowledge workers, making the situation seem nearly intractable.

Everyday operations for today's companies create massive volumes of usable digital content. Strong use of the information generated can help companies differentiate themselves from competitors and develop projects that are exactly what staff and customers alike call for. There is a catch, however. If the content is hard to locate, all of these advantages will become less pronounced. Spending time and staff effort digging through archives to find a relevant piece of data is a waste of resources, and efficient operations call for the removal of issues like these.

The rise in data volume, velocity and variety are causing trouble for companies trying to ensure constant information availability. Unfortunately, the causes of data sprawl are some of the fundamental building blocks of today's enterprise environment, meaning it's not going away. For instance, affordable and new applications to create, capture and store information are creating siloed and confusing data environments that are larger than ever before and very hard to untangle. IT departments need an answer to this situation, and turning back the clock on overall IT development and application deployment is clearly not an option. Instead, they will have to think about how to liberate the data from the present environment.

The impact of indexing your content that is accessed daily can be significant, no matter the type of company in question. Searching for information is a regular part of the office routine for a multitude of knowledge workers and a smaller but still vital task for nearly every type of role. If those attempts to find a particular piece of content take too long or fail outright, the end result will be wasted time, at a minimum. The global economy is fragile and competition is fierce, meaning such lost productivity is unacceptable. In this way indexing, which is a subtle process that operates in the background of corporate operations, can become one of the absolute key processes in any IT setup.

Combining application functionality is frequently a project for today's IT departments. The drive to place more functionality in fewer pieces of software is notable because operational environments can be extremely complex, which is detrimental to users. Giving workers a few tools that can do more helps them stay focused and accomplish more. Enterprise search improvement through indexing is one capability that can be placed in the context of other software suites to enable all-around productivity. For example, this approach could be used to enhance the search capability of intranets and other enterprise portals.
