As medical technology evolves and medical care improves, life expectancy rises. In 2012, the overall life expectancy in the United States was 79.8, up from 77.9 in 2007. Individuals over the age of 65 who spend more on health care services than their younger counterparts will comprise one-fifth of the population by 2050.

on: July 20, 2015, by: Ann Kelly

You’ve most likely implemented a content management system with the confidence that your problems are solved, another item checked off your list right? Yet as you begin to organize data, your folder structures become complex. With increased document volumes, accurate and precise manual tagging and classification of your content becomes a burden and is often done in a hurried and imprecise manner (or not at all) which means that not only is it difficult to find content, but the metadata that you depend on for proper information governance is missing.

Why Enterprise Search Doesn’t Work

on: May 23, 2015, by: Ann Kelly

Basic search works by examining the text in a group of documents and building an index of their contents. Then a user comes along and queries that index using a particular word or phrase.

on: May 18, 2015, by: Jeremy Bentley

Information is the foundation of every organization. Those with accurate, reliable and timely information have an economic advantage over their competitors.
