As I promised in my last blog, I will discuss real-world examples of hybrid search deployment projects at both a large, publicly-traded manufacturing company and a well-known multi-national law firm. First, let’s look at the manufacturing company and understand a bit about their systems. Their business productivity stack is Microsoft O365, and all business records are kept in OpenText. Their intranet is based on Salesforce Communities, and the organization also heavily uses Confluence and Jira. The company’s OpenText contains over twenty million documents, with Confluence and Jira containing o ..read more

You Can Have Your Cake and Eat It Too! (Part One)

Awhile back, I wrote a three-part blog series on federation. (Part One: “Make Federation a Part of Your Single Pane of Glass”) and why it should be part of your enterprise search strategy. Since then, we have noticed a huge shift away from a single-index strategy to a multi-index strategy. In the first installment for this blog series, I am asking you to shed the old paradigm on enterprise search. As Steve Jobs would say, “Think Differently.”  Strongly consider a multi-index strategy. Many of our new and existing customers have taken this hybrid strategy of combining query-time and merge ..read more

During my regular industry reading, I noticed that Digital Transformation continues to be a hot button keyword that many tech companies are generating content around. One particular article caught my eye, calling out microservices and its importance in Digital Transformation for 2021. At first I was excited because Microservices are of particular interest to me, and getting them more love is great. But… as I read more, I got frustrated. Before I explain why, let me step back and share some history on Digital Transformation, because the marketing hype surrounding the term has been re-shaped to ..read more

Benefits of a Unified Hyperautomation Platform
BA Insight Official Blog
by Paul Kanevsky
1y ago
In my previous blog, I covered some of the challenges and limitations with hyperautomation solutions in typical enterprise implementations. In this blog, I propose a new way to overcome these limitations by unifying both automation and integration into a single platform. Automation and Integration – Better Together Automation and Integration platforms are used mostly independently of each other today, and we believe that’s a major weakness of each of them. The core philosophy behind the AppBus platform is that the power of automation is increased by orders of magnitude when such automations ca ..read more

BA Insight Official Blog
by Paul Kanevsky

In this blog, I discuss the limitations of existing first-generation standalone Automation and Integration platforms. In a follow up blog, I will propose how to overcome these limitations. Automation Automation is usually defined as the mechanism of automating tasks normally performed by humans.  There are many benefits to Automation, which are usually equated with RPA (Robotic Process Automation). George Brooks, People Advisory Services Leader at Ernst & Young, said it best, “RPA actually enables us to ‘get back to human’ and engage in relationships, activities and projects that are ..read more

If someone had said to me at the start of the year that Brexit would not be the number one topic on the front pages of UK newspapers, the aviation industry would be in crisis because you couldn’t fly internationally, petrol prices had fallen to below £1 a litre, or that you need to wear a mask to go to the grocery store….I would have found it mildly bemusing and somewhat hard to believe.  BUT, if someone had said to me, Jason, you need to give your mother a one hour crash course in Microsoft Teams because for the foreseeable future, she will be conducting her teacher governor meetings onl ..read more

Is a Single Pane of Glass Really Enough?
BA Insight Official Blog
by Mark Aschemeyer - SALES DIRECTOR
1y ago
In part two of my blog series, I discussed how the single index is going the way of the dinosaur.  I also introduced the concept of an “In-App” enterprise search experience, which I think is the future. Even more bluntly, In-App Search is game-changing technology.  It allows users to seamlessly access information spread across multiple data stores, all from within the applications they use every day. It easily integrates into their existing business process. Users don’t need to learn a new application. They just get relevant information faster and easier. Think of it as having an “en ..read more

After my last blog, I received several questions about use cases for a federated approach. So, I have written this follow up blog to share real-world examples of the power of federation. I will also introduce the “in-app” experience – the idea of bringing search to where your information workers live. We work with some of the largest law firms in the world, and many of these firms use NetDocuments as their ECM platform.  (Full disclosure: BA Insight is a NetDocuments technology partner). This particular customer has 100+ million documents in the NetDocuments platform.  Monthly, 5 to ..read more
