A single platform for any type of knowledge

Federated Search

According to a McKinsey report, employees spend 1.8 hours every day - 9.3 hours per week, on average - searching and gathering information at work.

In our vision to be the primary source for knowledge and people inside organizations, we worked to improve Starmind’s search experience by introducing a new feature: the federated search. Searching for information at work shouldn’t be so time consuming.

With Starmind federated search employees have a single place to find tacit and explicit knowledge. The new federated search feature allows employees to search and retrieve information, such as internal documents, videos, and files inside the organization from the company's internal data repositories. It is integrated with Microsoft search to make the search of files and documents more effective for users.

How does it work?

Users type a query in the search bar and can access gated and ungated files after logging in to their Microsoft account.


Only the content a user has permission to see appears in the search results. A user might, for example, have permission to see a file because the user created it, it was shared with the person or with a larger group that includes the user, or it’s stored in a folder or location that the user has permission to access.

How can this new feature help your business?

Today, the enormous amount of information poses many challenges, and one of them is the timely retrieval of relevant data for employees. The Federated search is a powerful add-on feature to help your organization become more efficient.

Starmind Federated search will help:

  • Boost employee productivity by decreasing the amount of time it takes for an employee to find the necessary information, leaving more time for higher value-adding tasks.

  • Improve the process of knowledge management within the organization

  • Improve employees satisfaction by saving their time and providing a central place to easily and timely access to knowledge.
