A recent press release states, “Software startup Cloudtenna launched today to address the growing problem of file sprawl with enterprise file search that works universally across on-premise repositories, cloud file storage services, and hosted/online applications. DirectSearch™ uses machine learning intelligence, natural language processing, and automation to build [what is in essence] an all-new search engine for the way people work today. Files scattered across email apps, network drives, cloud storage, and hosted collaboration suites have created chaos and inefficiency. IDC estimates that the typical knowledge worker spends about 2.5 hours per day, or roughly 30% of the workday searching for files. An enterprise employing 1,000 knowledge workers wastes $48,000 per week, or nearly $2.5 million per year, due to an inability to locate and retrieve information, concluding that ‘it behooves the enterprise to provide the best information-finding tools available and to ensure that all of its intellectual assets have access to them, no matter where they reside’.”
The release goes on, “Key features of DirectSearch include: Cross-silo file search: One single search tool scans local and network drives; services like Dropbox, Google Drive, and Box; and SaaS platforms like Slack, ShareFile, and Salesforce. AI-powered accuracy: DirectSearch learns from relevance, context, and user behavior to continuously improve search results and rankings. Granular criteria: Users can find files by name, sender, date, file type, keyword, content, and other attributes regardless of where it is stored. Secure: DirectSearch does not store user passwords or account information, and does not access or endanger user files or personal data. Fast: DirectSearch presents search results in 400-600 milliseconds.”
