It always seems that we need to find some specific piece of information at the most inconvenient time. Finding what we want to know means dealing with the documents that hold what we want to know. Has anyone purchased this report? Is there any data, anywhere, on this particular topic?
Where are all these documents? They are on hard drives, in network shares, in SharePoint sites and other places where the company has saved presentations, collateral, purchased market research, white papers, and analyst reports. They could even be in on servers in other countries.
Moving all of the documents into some central place is not going to work, because it’s a ton of hard work, and that is just not the way people work. Entering each document into a database so we can look them up won’t work either. Who has time for that?
Creating elaborate mazes of folders to hold all these documents sounds like a full-time, no-fun chore too. And, then there are the places outside our company: Competitor websites, regulatory websites, supplier websites, and customer websites that we search regularly.
We should be able to pull up every competitor’s current third quarter report; the current third quarter, not third quarter from 1998. One search, get all competitors at once. Too much to ask?
