The International Monetary Fund (IMF) needed to make it easier for its staff to research the economic affairs of its 187 member countries so that they could make better-informed policy recommendations. To this end, the IMF implemented an enterprise search solution using Microsoft SharePoint Server and Microsoft FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint. The solution provides consolidated access to information and documents from multiple repositories. By using advanced search technology, economists can access documents and conduct research more efficiently. In addition, the IMF implemented Knowledge Exchange, a search-driven portal that enables taxonomy-driven classification and refining of core official documents. With the combined solution, the IMF has boosted employee satisfaction significantly and encouraged employees to share information more readily.
