Search Continues to Be Business Critical in 2014

A year ago I suggested that search would become business critical in 2013, and I think my forecast was in line with reality.

Social Business, Intranet Search Has to be More Than Just a Search BoxI’ve just come back from another highly successful KMWorld conference in Washington where over 900 people seemed more than happy to be entombed in the subterranean conference suites of the Renaissance Hotel for four days. With no specific intranet track this year, presentations on intranets popped up in the Knowledge Management (KM), SharePoint and Enterprise Search tracks.

Search is Getting Smarter All the Time

Social Business, Enterprise Search, Search is Getting Smarter All the TimeThere is a tendency to be critical of the fact that the core technology dates back to the work of Gerard Salton in the mid-1960s, and that therefore search is broken and is going nowhere.
