In Enterprises, Day-to-Day Data / Information is captured in documents BUT Documents-based data Generation in enterprises is mostly UN-STRUCTURED 2 Lightflake Technologies
Even if employees are genuinely interested in creating well-formatted and Data-Complete documents, they end up making Un-Structured and inconsistent documents. 3 Lightflake Technologies
Various “Application Architecture Document” sample documents made by employees of a Mobile App Development company 4 Lightflake Technologies
Storage of Unstructured Documents Distributed on PCs Shared Drives and Folders Un-Structured Documents In a CMS/DMS Repository CMS - Content Management System DMS – Document Management System 5 Lightflake Technologies
Benefits of CMS/DMS
Can create folders and organize documents into directories/folders
Access Control Rules over documents/folders access.
Updates over document activity
BUT DOCUMENTS ARE STILL UNSTRUCTURED ! AND ENTERPRISE SEARCH ENGINES FAIL MISERABLY TO CONTEXTUALLY MINE DATA WITHIN DOCUMENTS 6 Lightflake Technologies
Enterprise Search Engines
Enterprise Search is significantly different from Web Search and most search engines depend on content categorization which is pre-dominantly manual , time-taking and a process in continuum.
“Semantic enhancements” done by manual/automatic “Content Classification” by using both generic and enterprise-specific taxonomies and ontology managers.
Some Search engines provide additional “navigational capabilities” for further filtering down on relevant search results.

Enterprise Search Engines Shortcomings
Good for searching people, good for searching documents as A whole but are basically incapable to intelligently (“Semantically”) mine data ‘within’ Un-Structured documents.
Never help creating any insight into data.
Search results presented in form of links to ‘positive hit’ documents. User is required to click->open->read all listed documents to find whether they really contain any useful data. This process is very cumbersome and thus practically unusable by employees.

Sample Search Results screen from a Google Search Appliance(GSA) implementation. User need to click->open->browse each document to find searched information. 9 Lightflake Technologies
Creates a situation of ‘Knowledge Rot’.Lots of data/information is generated daily within enterprise which is never analyzed, which can otherwise be powerfully mined for
Highly Efficient Information reuse within Enterprise
Impressively reducing redundant work
Very powerful and actionable Knowledge Insights
Single-point visualization of Enterprise data
etc. , etc..

List all applications with their ‘Installation Details’
List application X and its ‘Features to Add’ and ‘Miscellaneous’ section
And On and On…………… Imagination is the only limit here !!
This is REAL Knowledge Creation
Maximum reuse of existing Information
Minimizing redundant work
Imagine Knowledge Capital generated when document templates made for most of enterprise technical/non-technical processes !! 18 Lightflake Technologies
Some ‘Other’ benefits of Knolidge
Single point control over all documents and templates.
Addition/Deletion of a field in template will automatically add /delete that
field in all existing documents and subsequently in all new documents.
Change in template will be effected in all existing documents. For example,
Changing Company logo in template will automatically change that Logo in all documents.
Filtering out confidential/irrelevant information from document before presenting it to external parties.
Company’s data is generated in most future-proof format i.e. XML, and it opens up many possibilities like externally using all XMLs for other BI purposes or for
generating visual graphs and statistics by applying XSL Transformations over XMLs. 19 Lightflake Technologies
