Why Read This Report
Information workers waste a lot of time searching for information that they already have.

Our research suggests that many information workers have taken matters into their own hands, downloading consumer-grade desktop search tools at work to help them cope. Yet, consumer desktop search exposes your enterprise to unnecessary risks, such as information leaks. Information and knowledge management (I&KM) professionals must include desktop search in their broader information management strategies to enhance worker productivity and to mitigate the unintended consequences that consumer desktop search can cause.
