ACS WA Information Management IM SIG - Searching Vs Finding: How to balance “empowerment” with “control” when it comes to classifying documents

Wednesday, 25 Jan 2017

There is an ever-present gap between “Searching” and “Finding” which on the web seems to be closing on a daily basis, but in our business systems remains stubbornly wide .

We have all encountered the frustration of looking for content at work that we know exists, but which has been poorly named or classified.

How do we respond to the perennial question, “Why can’t we just have Google at work”?

Is technology the answer? Is the machine learning revolution the silver bullet we are hoping for?

In this informative presentation, we look at both the technology and the strategies that can be employed to ensure that our corporate content supports both short-term usage and long-term discovery / re-use.

Join Craig McGowan, Director and Principal Consultant at Cadmus Consulting, for a chance to answer these and many more questions regarding enterprise search design and strategies.
Craig will share some insights gained over more than 30 years in the information management industry.

Pizza and Soft Drinks will be available On Arrival for guests.
