Enterprise Search & Discovery 2014

Enterprises wanting to leverage internal data to enhance profitability and deliver excellent services need discovery mechanisms as well as enterprise search. The emphasis is on the conversion of search and discovery, a collaborative working environment, and an era of constant change. 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.

As enterprises consider conversion, collaboration, and change, Big Data makes enterprises 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.

At the Enterprise Search & Discovery conference you'll learn how your peers and colleagues have wrestled with and solved their technological and business challenges. You'll hear about incorporating new technologies, formulating new strategies, improving findability, moving to different platforms, adopting different approaches to search and discovery.
