Given the fast pace of today’s government missions, it’s more important than ever for warfighters to be able to find critical information easily when they need it. Today, huge amounts of data are stored in hard-to-access, decentralized systems with different legacy architectures, search engines and security restrictions.
Searching across of all these systems is time-consuming. In fact, a study conducted by MeriTalk, DLT Solutions and Google found that 87% of federal employees spend about one and a half hours each day searching internal databases for information. With mission success on the line, overcoming these inefficiencies is a top priority.
This white paper will discuss:
  • The current challenges Department of Defense (DoD) agencies face in regards to sharing mission-critical information across departments and commands.
  • The advantages the Google Search Appliance (GSA) can offer to increase knowledge management capabilities across the DoD.
  • Real-life examples of how government agencies are using the GSA to break down information silos and provide users access to exactly the information they need, at the moment they need to know it.
