CONTENT INVENTORY

Get a complete inventory of your unstructured data.


Shinydocs crawls your content repositories and then uses rules to identify and classify your files, documents, records, and media to create a regularly updated master content inventory. It is invisible to your employees and works in the background while your team focuses on their day jobs.

  • Detailed insights. Our software uses metadata crawling, text extraction, and optical character recognition to give you more context about your content.
  • The complete picture. Inventory content stored in file shares, SharePoint, Microsoft 365, OpenText, email servers, and more.

DATA VISUALIZATION

Explore your content with context.


Results of your unstructured data inventory are displayed on an interactive dashboard that allows you to explore what content you have by file format, storage location, age, last update, and other parameters such as classification, tags, and results based on the scope of your crawl.

  • Customized data visualizations. Filter, dig in, and ask questions of your data to get key context quickly.
  • Detailed reports. Let us build a customized report with recommendations on how you can action your content to get the most value.

Who said unstructured data management has to be overwhelming? With Shinydocs, you get full visibility over all your files, documents, and media so you can easily manage the data you know about, and the data you don’t.

Before Shinydocs Discover


  • Hunt through multiple repositories to find the latest version of a file
  • Mobilize teams of staff to respond to important information requests
  • Decisions are only partially data-driven using the 20% data that is structured and usable
  • Employees resist records management policies because they feel inconvenient
  • It’s difficult to attest to compliance with standards, guidelines, and regulations

After Shinydocs Discover

  • One admin can find all relevant content in seconds
  • Decisions are made with the full context and knowledge of your organization
  • Records are classified automatically as new content is added to your repositories
  • Confidently attest to compliance by using your complete content inventory
