How unified information applications are transforming work
Description: The data stored in enterprise systems is growing
exponentially. According to IDC, the digital universe (all the digital data
stored in all the systems in the world) is growing by 40 percent per
year, doubling roughly every two years. And enterprises have liability
or responsibility for 85 percent of that data.
As data stores increase, it becomes increasingly difficult for knowledge
workers to locate the information they need to do their jobs. To solve
this problem, enterprises have invested in a range of applications,
portals, and enterprise search tools. In fact, researchers say the market
for enterprise search tools is likely to be worth $5.02 billion by 2020.
However, despite these significant financial investments, the tools
enterprises have aren’t always meeting the needs of workers.
