For over twenty years, Flare has been helping clients improve their search experience with a single search over multiple technical repositories.
One of the key concepts that helps support improved search is the ability for information to inherit context depending on where it is being stored, or where in a structure it has been placed. This reduces the burden on users to add tags to enable future information discovery.
The Flare IM tools makes it possible to define inherited tags based on the source of the information, or inherit tags based on the file structure or process being run, e.g., a SharePoint site might drive confidentiality settings, the position in a file hierarchy might define the country the content is about or the user community that the content is relevant to.
Combine the idea of inheriting tags with a semantic search and taxonomies to really add power to your search.
