(PRWEB UK) 5 May 2011
The best and brightest minds in the enterprise search industry are preparing to converge next week on New York, where the 2011 Enterprise Search Summit is to commence on May 10th.
The Summit will this year focus on 'Intelligent Search' and includes enterprise semantic platform providers Smartlogic among its Gold sponsors.
Smartlogic's Semaphore, an Enterprise Semantic Platform that augments traditional information management systems, will be the subject of a talk by Sarah Ann Berndt, Johnson Space Center Taxonomist (JSC). Berndt will be presenting 'A Practitioner’s Perspective on Taxonomy, Ontology, and Findability' and talking about the implementation of Semaphore at NASA and the challenges of building an infrastructure that accurately represents more than 50 years of manned space flight.
The Enterprise Search Summit, a fully comprehensive two-day conference that covers how to develop, implement and enhance cutting-edge internal search capabilities, has been running since 2004 and has proven so popular within the enterprise search industry that it now runs biannually.
The event traditionally attracts a huge range of information management and enterprise search stakeholders including information and knowledge architects, Search managers, intranet/portal managers, IT managers, taxonomists, content managers, web publishers & developers, information professionals, knowledge management professionals - in fact, anyone who is responsible for organising, managing, and retrieving internal and/or external information.
Attendees are promised the opportunity to learn how to make the most of their content and knowledge assets and empower employees through the effective use of search tools and techniques, as well as real-world experience, case studies, and expert industry insights into the strategies necessary to make an enterprise or organisation’s content not only searchable but "findable" and actionable so that it delivers a significant ROI.
Jeremy Bentley, Smartlogic CEO and developer of the Semaphore software, said: "The Enterprise Search Summit is heralded as the premier enterprise search industry event of the year and Smartlogic is very much looking forward to the 2011 conference. Naturally we are delighted that NASA has been invited to attend and share some hands-on experience of the power and versatility of Semaphore. As an enterprise semantic platform, Semaphore adds advanced content classification, metadata and navigation capabilities to deliver a more complete enterprise information management experience".
Sarah Berndt, JSC Taxonomist, NASA, Johnson Space Center, ITAMS Contract, has a background in education and content management as well as interface development and design. Since becoming the JSC Taxonomist, her focus is developing effective methodologies for utilizing the taxonomy, ontology and thesaurus in manner that accurately and consistently represents content, while remaining valuable to the end user.
The Enterprise Search Summit 2011 will be held at the NY Hilton, New York from 10 - 11 May 2011.
Smartlogic will also be exhibiting at the event and will welcome any visitors in person to Booth 1. For more information about Smartlogic, Semaphore or to view the free NASA search demo go to http://www.smartlogic.com
