Enterprise search has become a key enabling platform technology for companies of all sizes across all industries, helping companies turn information into positive business outcomes through engaging user experiences. In this discussion, we will learn how enterprise search is transforming businesses, connecting people and information, to help companies increase revenues on their public-facing web properties, and reduce costs by improving business performance, increasing employee productivity and speeding innovation and customer responsiveness within the enterprise. We will discuss the key principles and components of an enterprise search system and how enterprise search can be deployed throughout an organization to improve business processes and drive greater profitability and employee and customer satisfaction.
