If like many companies, your content is spread across multiple repositories, it can be a challenge to find something. You may struggle with the correct words / standards, or you may have to conduct multiple searches in different systems to be sure you’ve got everything you need. Conversely if you are an author, where should you put your magnum opus?
Flare’s approach is simple. Create a metadata index that describes every document or file and says where it is stored.
As a user, you can conduct one quick and easy search across many repositories.
As an author, the system can tell you where to store a document based on context.
At this point, we could also talk about tagging, naming standards and industry knowledge to power both the storage and search for information, but that’s another story.
