The ability to search for information and find what you need is a critical knowledge management capability for any enterprise. But too often, search is limited to a quick keyword search and a set of links that leave you trying to figure out what you need.
In earlier blogs about the value of cognitive search for life sciences companies, we’ve focused on the role it can play in accelerating drug discovery and finding new therapeutic uses for drugs that have received FDA approval. The search technologies that help achieve those goals can also make life sciences sales and marketing smarter and more effective.
As we’ve explained in many blogs and 5-minute guides, a cognitive search platform should combine AI technologies such as natural language processing, machine learning, and knowledge graphing to deliver a contextualized search and discovery experience without compromising security. Those technologies can turn ordinary search into something much more powerful and transformative for any organization.
When life sciences companies develop new drug therapies or biomedical interventions, what typically attracts the most attention is news about the success or failure of clinical trials. But a lot of work goes on behind the scenes before these efforts ever reach the clinical trial stage. In fact, as life sciences companies decide what promising therapies should receive development resources, it’s often rigorous fact finding and research that determines a go or no-go decision.
Google has announced that it’s sunsetting the Google Search Appliance. Are you using it? Microsoft is sunsetting FAST. Are you using it?
Here’s the thing. The search market is changing, and the vendors know it. That’s why you are seeing major changes in the traditional search market. More importantly, though, you are noticing that traditional search simply isn’t giving you the information you need.

Hadoop is fast becoming the center piece of a modern data architecture. And Cloudera Enterprise provides the centralized management and robust support that you need to effectively operate Hadoop.
The modern data architecture stores data as is; it doesn't require pre-modeling. It needs to accommodate volume, velocity, and variety including structured and unstructured information. Hadoop does this very well.
I recently attended Hadoop Summit 2016 where not surprisingly there was a lot of conversation about topics other than Hadoop. For example, the importance of ecosystem partners to any Big Data solution.
At Attivio, we work with some of the world's largest banks and manufacturing companies. As they invest more in Hadoop, they also require more from it. They recognize its value in dealing with extremely large and diverse data sets. But they're also looking for enterprise features, and data governance is often at the top of the list.
