Shire selects Objective search solution


Victoria's Mornington Peninsula Shire has selected an enterprise search solution from content, collaboration and process management provider, Objective, to provide its 600 employees with a single place to search more than 10 million pieces of information stored in multiple repositories.

Under the contract, Objective's enterprise search solution will enable MPS team members to conduct a single search, across multiple systems, simultaneously, with a single set of optimised results presented to users showing the most relevant and up-to-date information, regardless of the system in which the information is stored.

'We wanted to reduce the amount of time people spend conducting the same search in multiple Shire systems,' MPS senior information planner, Leigh Oldmeadow said.

'Information can be found across a range of systems. Our team members need one place to search for information held in any or all of those systems. Making sure that the most relevant results are returned at the top of the list is critical in delivering a single view of a topic. Without the ability to customise what information is most relevant, team members may need to review many pages of search results to find what they are looking for.'

Oldmeadow said that by giving the shire team members a single search interface for all of its systems, as well as optimised search results, the organisation would achieve a 'significant reduction in the amount of time spent looking for information,' and would contribute to 'better quality and more responsive service delivery for our community.'

Objective CEO, Tony Walls, said the company's enterprise search was specially developed for public sector organisations 'to solve a substantial challenge that they face - finding all the related and most relevant information that is stored across a number of disparate IT systems. Through the use of Objective Enterprise Search we expect that Mornington Peninsula Shire will set a new best practise benchmark for Australian councils.'

Active Vs. Passive DWDM Solutions

An active approach to your growing optical transport network & connectivity needs.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
