IBM has introduced new software that helps employees tap into the broadest range of business information to do their jobs more effectively from their desktops, mobile phones and tablets. The new offering allows traditional and mobile workers to securely access, manage and gain insight from structured and unstructured content such as emails, documents, images, Web data and collaboration tools to improve productivity.
IBM Content Navigator, the new software, gives employees access to a broad range of documents, records, images and other relevant content to do their jobs more effectively.
Built on open standards like HTML5 and CMIS, the new software provides a consistent user experience across a variety of mobile devices, operating systems and content sources, allowing employees across all lines of businesses to access, manage, contribute and share content any time, from any location.
“IBM is continuing to lead the way in helping organisations manage the content they rely upon for everyday operations,” said IBM Enterprise Content Management Leader Doug Hunt. Today we are enabling clients to make content available in any context to help them deal with the information sprawl of big data. “It’s key that clients can now drive business insights from enterprise content and share collaboration content with others who need it.”
In addition to the collaboration and mobile capabilities IBM Content Navigator delivers, the underlying platform was built for easy customisation; employees can set up document collaboration areas themselves with minimal help from the IT department. This self-provisioning capability allows departments such as sales, human resources, finance or legal to customise the solution for their specific business needs.
To gather the facts needed to make the right businesses decisions, organisations must have the ability to uncover trends, patterns, and relationships from both their structured and unstructured enterprise content. With IBM Content Analytics with Enterprise Search v3.0, IBM is integrating content analytics software with enterprise search capabilities into a unified platform. In fact, content analytics and enterprise search capabilities are an integral part of the IBM Content Navigator experience, enabling users to quickly locate content across IBM and third-party repositories, with thumbnails, facets, summaries and term highlighting. Through its capabilities in natural language processing, semantic search, and sentiment analysis, this solution provides richer, more accurate, and relevant insights from content such as documents, reports, e-mails, Web content, surveys and enterprise applications.
IBM has also integrated its content analytics software with a component of IBM’s Big Data platform, InfoSphere BigInsights, which allows clients to derive greater insights in a cost-efficient manner from the ever-increasing volumes of unstructured information flowing both within and outside the enterprise. This helps clients overcome processing limitations and indexing constraints to analyse petabytes of information to support decisions in areas such as crime intelligence, healthcare, insurance claims and customer care.
