UIA Bridges Silos and Automates Processes
UIA bridges silos and automates processes
So, how can companies better connect the dots? One key contributing factor is that information is stored in many forms and is retrieved via incompatible technologies.
This basically ens??í??í??íures that the process of assembling and connecting the dots will not be simple, automatic and seamless. When you add in complicating dynamics, such as the exploding volume of information that could contain relevant data, the risk of missing important insight is significant.
When looking at how to better connect the dots, the most important objectives to keep in mind are bridging silos to automate processes and deliver the right information at the right time. Whether the goal is early detection of trends to identify the issues before they mushroom into serious problems, having complete details about a customer at each interaction, or preventing a threat, comprehensive insight is not a luxury.
While organizational and cultural issues are partly to blame for the disconnect, a number of information management technologies-if used in conjunction with process improvements-can help to ease the pain. Unified Information Access (UIA) has emerged to address the increasingly painful problem of not being able to get complete, relevant insight in time to be effective and successful.
UIA integrates all content and data-regardless of source or format-into a single index to deliver complete information to people. This automates business processes and enriches user experience, uniting core capabilities offered separately by enterprise search, business intelligence, data warehousing, process automation, and analytics. UIA solves the problem of information isolation that limits innovation, discovery and market sensitivity.
