Best Practices in ENTERPRISE SEARCH AND INFORMATION ACCESS

FINDING FINDABILITY
 
For years, the focus of search was mainly on, well, searching. How to arrange information for better search; how to eliminate the garbage for better search; how to store things for better search....on and on.
 
Now, the smartest minds are focused on "finding." That's the ultimate goal--finding what people need to do their jobs and make better decisions. Search serves no purpose if the user can't find the things he or she wants.
 
That's why the next KMWorld White Paper is focused on "finding" the right answer at the right time. It's called "Best Practices in Intelligent Search and Information Access." If you think you play a role in this great task, then get involved with your story and position in this market
