SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Cloudtenna, a leading provider of rapid file delivery, search, and collaboration solutions, today announced that breakthrough Intelligent Search is now available for its DirectShare flagship product. This key new content management capability allows users to securely and intelligently search millions of company files based on contextual analytics such as work groups and established partnerships. Intelligent Search will be available for iOS and Android platforms via the newly released DirectShare App available for download from iTunes or Google Play.
"Intelligent Search from DirectShare relieved the unfair burden placed on SharePoint, allowing us to search thousands of massive files intuitively and instantly, transferring and managing data globally in a fraction of the time," said Bonnie Tang, Vice President, Corporate Operations and Communications, Pacific Energy Development. "By incorporating the DirectShare platform, Pacific Energy realized an incredibly cost effective way to streamline workflows and much more effectively manage the enormous amounts of unstructured data that we face daily."
Search is about creators and consumers, not just static files
While traditional enterprise search is limited to file names and content, DirectShare recognizes that accurate search correlates with the interaction of content across the people who make the organization function. Intelligent Search evaluates organizational relevance and data ownership to companies' existing data assets and returns curated search results inline with user access permissions. Users can now easily search data in their own document archives, file systems and other repositories where company data is stored with pick-and-go access at the file level. A complete chain of custody can easily be determined for the company's most important documents.
Beyond traditional search attributes, Intelligent Search incorporates optimized search functions that utilize authorship, company organizational charts, established workflows, dates and other company data. Advanced machine learning processes constantly improve relevancy of search based on users' behaviors.
Purpose-built for unstructured data based on behavioral access patterns
DirectShare eliminates the need to migrate thousands or millions of files from internal servers to cloud platforms or deploying expensive dedicated on-premise appliances.
DirectShare places optimized search indexes in the cloud while leaving the data securely located on-premise within the safety of a company's internal firewall. Purpose-built to access massive amounts of unstructured data securely with minimal impact to file systems, DirectShare offloads the strain of search results hitting storage systems while simultaneously improving user productivity through faster, more relevant results across data silos via a single pane of glass. Intelligent Search ensures data security while providing contextual data analysis without the need for infrastructure upgrades.
"By introducing elements of machine learning to our already robust DirectShare rapid file transfer and collaboration solution, DirectShare's Intelligent Search offers a glimpse of what it looks like to do on-premises, Google-like intuitive search adding multi-dimensional, 360-degree visibility into enterprise data," said Bryan Pham, Chief Technology Officer, Cloudtenna. "Intelligent Search significantly streamlines workflows to the contours of your organization's structure, and allows IT to painlessly web-enable their existing storage assets without the need for staff or user training. The DirectShare on demand approach is 'leave your files where they are, we'll find them and easily get them to where they need to be anytime you need it.'"
