London, United Kingdom, August 20, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Enterprise semantics specialists Smartlogic announce this week the publication of a new and leading-edge news and information resource. Available quarterly, 'The Semaphore', Smartlogic's newsletter and forum is now available online.
"'The Semaphore' will be addressing the key issues faced month-on-month in the enterprise information management industry. We actively encourage discursive interest and participation so 'The Semaphore' is a useful forum for debate, giving top industry professionals the opportunity to nurture and develop the latest ideas," says Maya Natarajan, VP of Marketing at Smartlogic.
The focus of the inaugural issue of 'The Semaphore' is a recent research study entitled “Mind the Enterprise Search Gap”. Conducted by MindMetre Research, the report details the analysis of the gap between enterprise search expectations and real life experience.
Apparently enterprise search is falling far short of expectations, according to a survey of more than 2,000 directors and managers in the US, UK, Germany and France. More than half (52%) of respondents say they cannot find the information they are seeking using their own organization’s enterprise search facility within what most define as an acceptable amount of time.
The first issue also asks 'Why Semaphore For SharePoint?' Discussion centres around a white paper that describes how Semaphore's tight integration with SharePoint enables the extension of SharePoint capabilities. Smartlogic explores the buzz surrounding SharePoint and looks at the ways in which Semaphore for SharePoint provides automatic classification and taxonomy governance.
'The Semaphore' also alerts subscribers to industry-related conferences and meetings. Issue 1 offers details of the Enterprise Search Europe: October 24 - 25, 2011, Hilton London Olympia, London, UK, and the SharePoint Symposium: November 2 - 3, 2011, Washington Marriott Wardman Park, Washington, D.C.
Maya Natarajan adds, "Smartlogic is very keen to make this newsletter as useful as possible for the end user – so subscriber input will guide the topics we'll cover in future issues. So if you're in the industry and you have any suggestions then, please, don't hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org."
