One of the greatest benefits of a strong Enterprise Content Management (ECM) system is the ability to get out what you put in. By having strong indexing, taxonomy, and repository services, locating the correct information within your repository should be as easy as a Google search.
Enterprise search systems index data and documents from a variety of sources such as: file systems, intranets, document management systems, e-mail, and databases. This data can be indexed by any user with the ability to add content to that particular repository. Categories for indexing documents are usually determined by a company standard, which is programmed in the solution to ensure consistency across the entire enterprise.
Enterprise Search systems also have the ability to redact information from being shown to users with inadequate security privileges. Reasons for these redactions can are determined by the system, and often can include the protection of personal information or sensitive information. This provides great benefit across the platform of an enterprise system, especially when information needs to be shares between different departments or government agencies.
