According to McKinsey, employees spend 1.8 hours every day – more than one full business day per week – searching and gathering information they need to perform their jobs. The inability to locate the right information at the right time is a top contributor to employee frustration and a drain on workplace productivity. Even best-in-breed business productivity solutions cannot search across the enormous amount of disparate data sources created by all business applications deployed within an enterprise’s on-premise and cloud environments.

BA Insight’s powerful AI-driven search software, integrated with the Akumina EXP, allows businesses to go beyond what popular digital workplace solutions’ embedded search capability can deliver. Together, they help employees find specific information quickly and efficiently, regardless of where the information resides. With these search capabilities, Akumina EXP users around the globe can access endless sources of data and intelligence across an enterprises’ technology ecosystem through a ‘single-pane-of-glass’ search experience.
