Enterprise Search & Discovery Conference
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.
How have information search and discovery issues and challenges affected you? Have you found a solution that works well in your environment? Have you switched technologies, formulated new strategies, or moved to different platforms? Has findability increased within your organization? Are you adopting different approaches to search and discovery? How are you measuring success?

B104: Information Governance
May 13, 2014 @ 3:15 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Alice Burns, Managing Director, Eleventh Hour
Theresa A Simek, SEO Team Lead, EY Knowledge, Ernst & Young LLP
Although it’s less sexy than actual search and discovery projects, the governance aspects are critically important. Burns gives a case study of one corporation’s approach to information governance, including its assessment and readiness level, its road map for change, and its selection and prioritization processes. Simek tells how to get buy-in from application owners while developing a search governance process. She calls it going from chaos to order.
