Publisher Comments:

Is your organization rapidly accumulating more information than you know how to manage? This book helps you create an enterprise search solution based on more than just technology. Author Martin White shows you how to plan and implement a managed search environment that meets the needs of your business and your employees. Learn why its vital to have a dedicated staff manage your search technology and support your users.

In one survey, 93% of executives said their organization is losing revenue because theyre not fully able to use the information they collect. With this book, business managers, IT managers, and information professionals can maximize the value of corporate information and data assets.

  • Learn how to make a business case for search
  • Research your user requirements and evaluate your current search solution
  • Create a support team with technical skills and organizational knowledge to manage your solution
  • Set quality guidelines for organizational content and metadata
  • Get an overview of open source and commercial search technology
  • Choose an application based on your requirements, not for its features
  • Make mobile and location-independent search part of your solution

Synopsis:

Organizations are rapidly accumulating more information than they know how to manage. Enterprise search dates back two decades but has a small installed base, and few managers have experienced what it takes to select, install, and implement search applications. This book shows how to identify requirements, evaluate commercial and open-source solutions, and install, tune, and support software. The final chapter will explore how search is becoming the heart of many applications, providing unified access to structured and unstructured information.
