Enterprise Search in the Real World

ENTERPRISE SEARCH SUMMIT FALL 2011 has a unique focus on the practical aspects of implementing internal corporate search services. Case studies anchor the 3 days of presentations and discussion, covering realworld implementations in consumer products corporations, research institutions, technology companies, management consulting, and large media institutions. If you are a search specialist, knowledge manager, IT, department director or CIO, ENTERPRISE SEARCH SUMMIT FALL is the place to learn about the best choices and how to avoid common errors, creating the best search value for your investment.

Enterprise search is not about simply locating masses of information, it is about enabling employees to more effectively perform their jobs. The stakes are high, and at ENTERPRISE SEARCH SUMMIT FALL, we provide the expert resources you need to enable information access and action to deliver better results in your organization, searching via smartphones and tablets, search-based applications, through gigabytes of video, and across data silos.

Integrated with the KMWorld Conference, SharePoint Symposium and Taxonomy Bootcamp, this is a not to be missed event that provides the complete picture of the enterprise information ecosystem to better inform your most valuable assets: the content, information, and knowledge that are the lifeblood of your organization.
