Where is it?!
You know you have it and just can’t find it right away.
With the myriad of online and on-premise systems available today it is very easy to get frustrated and delayed as your organization drowns in a steady flow of data generation. What is even more aggravating is that you know this issue costs you not just money, but opportunities as well. Your operational efficiency is negatively impacted and, according to various reports and our own experience with clients, this unnecessary restriction impedes your ability to maximize the value you can provide to your customers and partners.
Today, we have Google, Bing, and other search engines to comb the world’s information. What these engines do not see is everything on private networks, your corporate devices, and enterprise servers — and there really is no great, off the shelf solution to pick up the search slack. Very few companies have an efficient search engine for their own internal systems, yet an employee can often be found asking how can it be so hard to find an internal document. The solution to this problem begins with something called enterprise search, which Martin White defines expertly in his book (highly recommended buy) as, “Enterprise search is a managed search environment that enables employees to find information they can rely on in making decisions that will achieve organization and personal objectives.”
In this webinar, we will cover actionable steps that you can take in order to pluck your business information out of the depths of your many disconnected business systems such as Salesforce, WordPress, and more. We will also look at potential ways you can implement enterprise search best practices in order to get a hold of your business information and deliver what you do best in a faster and more efficient manner.
You can sign up for this Friday’s webinar here. We will start at 10am with a short introduction, followed by a presentation of the topic and demo and, if time allows, finish off with an open-forum style discussion. We look forward to seeing you there!
If you would like to check out some light reading prior to the webinar, this post by Martin White is a primer on what to consider when undertaking the development of an enterprise-wide search strategy.

Enterprise Search is a challenging problem for most organizations. Public search technologies such as Google can index content and use link popularity to rank content in addition to the basic keyword matches. Enterprise Search is different. Sometimes it requires specially designed indexes as well as several processing steps.
