Getting the right information at the right time is the goal of every search, content and information access platform. But how is this realistically and practically achieved in organisations that have applied best practices and recent advances in search to their day-to-day business problems?
This free online seminar will explore how a combination of recent advances in tools and approaches can enable a new vision and reality for search. Industry visionary, Nate Treloar, talks about new ways to consider search in the enterprise, search consultant, Toby Conrad, illustrates how new advances in integration of search applications can vastly improve the fidelity of search and Seth Earley, discussed how information structure can be easily enriched in ways that dramatically improve findability. These three perspectives will change the way enterprises should look at search.
Learn how to leverage search to:
- Improve enterprise agility and adaptability to new challenges and opportunities
- Find resources and experience to win more business and provide better client service
- Give greater control to business users to reach new audiences, engage in new conversations, project new messages – tightly linked to business objectives/performance
- Enable users to identify expertise in the organisation and reuse previous work
- Guide users to the correct business insights
- Create customised, individual experiences for users based on who they are and what they are trying to accomplish.
With these insights and approaches a company can extend the value of assets to their users through unique experiences that expose relevant information quickly, drive innovation in critical business functions, consolidate multiple views of the customer, increase user adoption, tap into the knowledge of the community and facilitate collaboration, and “push” new content through alerts and notifications.
