Ability to Retrieve Vital, Lost or Legacy Data
Access multiple information silos from one, simple user interface so that the user can find vital, lost or legacy data in one simple, fast search.
Finding the right data at the right time is a constant challenge for organizations of any size. Searching is time consuming, frustrating and often unsuccessful; users may not remember where the needed data and/or documents are stored, therefore, data is difficult – or maybe impossible – to discover using current searching methods. Alcove9 provides a simple solution that starts with the a9 Hub as the cornerstone of the data search.
Getting to “what you need, when you need it,” is an indisputable requirement of any organization, yet is arguably one of the perpetual thorns in the corporate side. Alcove9 will discover, retrieve and liberate all product and Part-related data, wherever it is located, in the companies’ information technology systems.
Moreover, Alcove9 respects all access control lists (ACL) defined for files and applications. This feature allows searching across multiple sources – while retaining information security policies. (NB: ITAR Regulations: This also means that, it will keep your ITAR requirements intact, if you are already compliant.)
Alcove9 takes advantage of methods users are accustomed to when using Web search engines. It provides a single user interface that triggers the discovery of the desired data stored in various software applications, such as PDM, PLM, ERP and ECM systems. In addition, it can access files, structured or unstructured, such as documents and emails.
Retrieving data is now easy – and a continuous benefit when using Alcove9.
It helps users at all levels of the enterprise make timely, day-to-day decisions that affect its competitive posture.
