This article discusses the concept of intellectual capital management (ICM). ICM includes search, but in the context of a broader set of integrated capabilities that can be easily combined to deploy unique solutions to your specific information challenges. Furthermore, ICM relies not only on the content itself, but also analyzes how users interact with that content, as well as how content relates to other content. True ICM capabilities include secure access and indexing, classification and tagging, advanced search, and monitoring and alerting. One consideration in implementing ICM is appointing who will manage the ICM solution after its deployment. Distributed management capabilities are essential to keeping your search and classification solutions usable. The reason there are so many information silos in the typical enterprise is that different people use different types of information to do different things. In a large enterprise, it is common to find five or six content management systems solving the unique problems of five or six departments. Distributing management of your ICM solution to the actual people who use it is only logical. With the growth in digital content, stored behind numerous applications in various formats, search is just one component of the larger ICM solution. It is a valuable component, but only one component nonetheless.
