Enterprise search is a touchy-feely service. If you have interviewed potential users of an enterprise information system, you probably have heard, "I prefer a system that works just like Google" or, "I want the system to provide just the information I need." Those types of statements make clear that search is a subjective concept. When search engine expert Steve Arnold expressed his concern with traditional surveys, a colleague suggested that he check in with Dr. Linda McIsaac, whose work involves a next-generation method of determining employee preferences. He asked McIsaac if she would update him on her methods for obtaining statistically valid data about an individual's or a group's preferences. Her company is Xyte, which uses her method described as "human behavior technology." Her work makes it possible to predict employee behavior and translate it into tangible business results. The Xyte approach, according to the company's Web site, is grounded in neuroscience and psychology. In this article, Arnold provides a review. Posted April 29, 2012

We are well aware of the productive gains with faster search. The new frontier is to improve the quality and insights from search, achieved from integration of search with analytics.
Enterprise solutions are well practiced at extracting information from structured data. Search is designed to aggregate unstructured information from keywords and a wide variety of sources like emails, social blogs, etc. Merging structured stores with unstructured text derives meaningful, relevant summarizations as well as new insights. Analytics dissolves the barrier, providing integration founded on the data content itself—driving more complete and accurate intelligence for business users. . . .

It is a true, yet frequently repeated, cliché to say that we are living in an age of total data overload. Individuals and businesses seem to be on a never-ending search to dig through this data to find meaningful information. Struggling with multiple silos of data, dealing with structured and unstructured sources, understanding their contents and finding and correlating data all remain key priorities. Today, most businesses constrain themselves to search along a single dimension or rely on keyword or pattern-based full text search.
A new chapter is emerging in search—turning the data overload into a mother lode of opportunities in boundless search for real information. . . .

Search is a conversation. If you ask me a question and I don't understand, I can ask you for more information. With time you learn more about my interests, and can give better answers. Well-designed, intelligent search systems can do the same. We can facilitate this dialog by addressing three critical requirements for effective search. These are:
1. Search needs to feel like navigation;
2. Search needs to be personal; and
3. Search needs to be adaptive, improving over time. . . .

Done right, KM can deliver tremendous value to customer service and support. Yet for all the benefits, the software category is marked by confusion—many very different solutions purport to be "KM." Knowledge is in people's heads, and it's hard to capture, even assuming they wanted to share. Knowledge is scattered in many places; it can be stale, and hard to find. To address these challenges, KM tools need to provide one-stop shopping for answers, wherever they are. Capturing knowledge must be easy. And managers need analytics to continually improve the knowledgebase and team performance. Different solution categories take very different approaches to these requirements. . . .

"Seek and ye shall find..." Yeah, right. Maybe about half the time, if you're lucky. It's true that most searches end in failure. And what's even more troubling is that the person making the search may never know that it was a failure. Let's say: A hypothetical knowledge worker enters a search query. May be a good one; may be a vague one. Doesn't (and shouldn't) matter. Then that person gets a results page. There is a long list of possible answers to his query, and there might even be some interesting stuff on it.
But the nagging doubt comes from "not knowing what you don't know"...
