With GDPR in full effect, Ovum has published a new white paper featuring Sinequa and outlining how cognitive search can be a compliance accelerator. The full white paper can be found at http://go.sinequa.com/white-paper-gdpr-ovum-2018.html.
The white paper, written by Ovum senior analyst Paige Bartley, outlines the challenges of aligning existing business objectives with GDPR compliance and how companies can accelerate GDPR compliance with an information-driven approach.
There is a new precedent with GDPR for enterprise control of data of all kinds, both structured and unstructured. Gaining better control of data is a deceptively simple concept, but requires numerous capabilities, such as the ability to search for data across silos and granularly manage who has access to what. Sophisticated search and analytics capabilities, spanning organizational silos, are key to both facilitating compliance and driving informational value.
According to the white paper: “GDPR compliance requirements should not be thought of as an antithetical force against enterprise initiatives to leverage and analyze data. The more the enterprise can align its compliance obligations with existing business objectives – such as the demand to provide excellent customer service via a 360° understanding of customer desires – the more it can benefit from the perceived ‘burden’ of GDPR compliance. Enterprise-wide search is central to these capabilities and will help the enterprise gain a centralized view of subjects and topics in the increasingly distributed IT ecosystem.”
As an example of this concept, the white paper highlights Sinequa’s platform deployment at Stibbe, a global, full-service law firm with an internationally oriented commercial practice. Stibbe implemented Sinequa’s Cognitive Search & Analytics Platform to provide secure, unified access to millions of documents and legal matters. The result was a holistic view of the firm’s informational landscape, with the ability to quickly retrieve all material related to individual topics, cases or clients.
This Ovum white paper gets at the heart of Sinequa’s approach to GDPR and data analytics. By taking control of data and unleashing it as a strategic tool, organizations can become information-driven in a way that meets compliance requirements while accelerating innovation and creating a key competitive advantage.

Cognitive search and analytics technologies are all about accessing the right information at the right time.
The increased severity of domestic security breaches due to terrorist threats and cyber crime poses a strategic challenge for federal and state security services. The strengthening of human resources, now widely deployed around the world, is not enough to meet the challenge alone. Increasing efficiency and speed, controlling the means of communication used by terrorists, but also, and above all, anticipating the lead-up to such actions, are all challenges that persist. (more…)
