Featured Content: Search Finds Usability with the Right Information Architecture
Search is not being deployed in the enterprise as a fundamental corporate platform, but as a fragmented function. Between thrashing amid multiple applications and interfaces and the "processing" of irrelevant information, users experience loss of time, loss of focus, and loss of productivity. Is it any wonder that satisfaction with current corporate search environments is so low? The solution to this situation is not the selection of the "right" search tool or even in search technology per se. The solution, observes consultant Carl Frappaolo in this Enterprise Search Center exclusive article, lies in the understanding that search is a component part of an overall organizational strategy and a commitment to an Information Architecture. The efficiency and effectiveness of the search experience is maximized when it is addressed holistically, as part of an organization-wide strategy to content management, embodied in an Information Architecture.
