Enterprises wanting to leverage internal data to enhance profitability and deliver excellent services need discovery mechanisms as well as enterprise search. It's no longer about merely searching for information within the firewall—it's about customers finding products, companies monetizing real time activities, and organizations maximizing the data they own. Deploying an enterprise search engine is rarely sufficient. It needs to be tweaked or replaced based on changing requirements.

The advent of Big Data causes enterprises to rethink how they handle search, databases, analysis, and decision making. Cloud computing, outcome-based metrics, adaptive filtering, taxonomy and metadata tools, predictive analysis, open source, knowledge graphs, and mobile delivery raise people's expectations for search and discovery. Implementing search and discovery that works for the realities of your business, your users, and your work environment presents many challenges. Search and discovery must support your organization's strategic goals in order to be taken seriously and thus adequately funded.

We've designed this year's Enterprise Search & Discovery conference with lots of room for interaction, panel discussions, and provocative talks. Whether your interests lie in upgrading existing platforms, cutting through the complexities of search technologies, designing your own discovery system, using search to enhance business intelligence, putting information in the cloud, taming your Big Data, or analyzing and measuring your search effectiveness, we've got something for you!
