Strategies to Hit Your Moving Targets

Download Presentations

This year’s Fall Enterprise Search Summit combines reports of real-world, practical, internal search services with reviews of some of the latest developments on the part of search companies. Case studies anchor the 3 days of presentations and discussion. Learn from your peers about how to hit the moving targets that affect your organization’s environment.

People’s search experience outside of work raises their expectations of what they can quickly and effortlessly locate on the job. Successful enterprise search is the key to satisfied employees and customers. It enables them to be more productive, perform their jobs better, make informed decisions, and pick out the salient information they need.

Conference presentations cover issues of findability, open source, cloud search, best practices, and other topics of concern to search practitioners. Enterprise Search Summit is where to go to learn strategies, explore solutions, and build the skill sets you need to make your organization’s content easily searchable and delivered in an actionable format. What you learn here will enable your organization to get the best value for its search initiatives.
