Limitations of

Enterprise Search


Scalability



Not feasible to index all
desired content into a master index.


Cost


Too expensive to create a
master index of all content.


Ownership of content



Internal
content owners and licensors of
subscription content won’t permit their
content to be indexed.


Security



Difficult to enforce content
security and privacy requirements.

True Federated Search

Solves These Limitations


Current information is
available at all times
without
costly duplication



Authentication and security
requirements of content can
be
enforced in real
-
time
.



Easy and inexpensive

to create a portal that searches


hundreds of information sources at the same time.



Creation and update of content is left
to experts.



Federated search can integrate well
with content accessible through one
or more Enterprise Search portals.

True Federated Search

Solves These Limitations (cont.)

Enterprise
-
Level Federated Search...


(not the same as Federated Search for Libraries)


Enterprise federated search
authentication needs are
more complex.


Search requirements are
more demanding.


Information Sources are
much more heterogeneous
in Enterprise Search.

Federated Search
-

Not the answer to all...


Indexed content is easier to relevance rank.


Hard to implement taxonomies in Federated
Search


Advanced search syntax such as proximity
searching, case sensitive searching and
thesaurus
-
based searching may not be
implemented by Federated Search.


Federated Search is unable to search highly
custom databases such as a parts database.

Federated Search can be a
discovery tool.
