  • (1888PressRelease) January 12, 2011 - 'Mind The Enterprise Search Gap: How NASA Is On The Road To Perfect Search.' Learn how NASA's Chief Knowledge Officer is integrating semantics with the Johnson Space Center search engine through taxonomy and ontology to improve findability and enhance end user experience to fully exploit 50 years of manned space flight information.

    This free webinar provides invaluable information to executives and IT staff who are responsible for delivering enterprise search and content management systems to business users rapidly and cost effectively.

    Enterprise Search is now commonplace in many organisations.The three main choices for search are the Google Search Appliance, Microsoft Fast and Sharepoint, or Lucene/ Solr.

    While these are widely used, Enterprise Search is not powerful enough to address the challenges of the enterprise because it does not know anything about the domain - how it breaks down into important entities and topics, the vocabulary, the people, and the resources related to these entities and topics. This is where semantics comes into play - to improve the performance of existing systems, whether it is SharePoint or an ECM system or Enterprise Search.

    Smartlogic's Semaphore elevates an enterprise or content management system search engine to a 'find and discover' engine, by adding a semantic layer of functionality. This semantic layer features powerful ontology capabilities and taxonomies along with a rich set of APIs, enhancing content metadata by using automated classification for dramatically better search results and improved navigation. Together, they deliver a semantic enterprise search experience that provides a flexible, powerful solution for any content management system.
    In this free webinar, you'll hear from Sarah Ann Berndt, Johnson Space Center Taxonomist and Toby Conrad of Smartlogic and learn how you, too, can:

    semantically enable your Enterprise Search and other ECM systems using navigational taxonomies, ontologies and automated classification
    dramatically improve your search results
    deliver compelling search applications that increase content reuse, support learning, and help users to complete tasks and solve problems

    Toby Conrad has been a Senior Consultant with Smartlogic for seven years and, along with NASA, has advised organisations such as Bank of America, Royal Bank of Scotland, BNP Paribas, and the University of North Carolina on enterprise search and semantic search.

    The free live webinar will be held on Wednesday, January 26, 2011 at the following times: 6:00AM PDT| 9:00 AM EDT| 2:00 PM GMT and 10:00AM PDT| 1:00PM EDT| 6:00PM GMT
