ENTERPRISE SEARCH SUMMIT is a highly intense, in-depth, 2-day conference that covers how to develop, implement and enhance cutting-edge internal search capabilities. If you are an information manager or IT or search professional, ENTERPRISE SEARCH SUMMIT is where you will learn strategies and build the skill sets you need to make your organization’s content not only searchable but "findable."

Expert instructors and industry analysts will cover the building blocks of “search,” including metadata, taxonomies, and classification; the complexities of searching both structured and unstructured content; enterprise information integration; how to determine which software features are essential in your search application; and how to differentiate among the wide range of products on the market.
