It’s an age-old challenge. Older files and legacy data are often hard to find. A user MUST already have information about the data and its location in order to find, retrieve, and work with it. In many cases, files are only perceived to be “lost”. They, in fact, may be right where they were left, but inaccessible because the user forgot or didn’t know where they were originally saved, or they were moved or migrated without notice, leaving the user in the dark.
Alcove9 products allow teams to search beyond naming conventions, meta data and file attributes within a Unified Information Access interface for searching rich text, title blocks, notes on drawings, PMI data and more – deep within each file, regardless of its location.
