Why Business Success Depends on Enterprise Search

Keynote by Martin White

Without effective enterprise search achieving growth in today’s highly competitive business environment is going to be difficult and very risky. In this presentation Martin White sets out the business case for ensuring that your organisation has made an appropriate level of investment in both search technology and a search support team, based on his Search Check search benchmarking methodology.

Martin White has been involved in the search business since the mid-1970s. He set up Intranet Focus Ltd in 1999 and specialises in intranet and information management strategy development. Martin has been a Visiting Professor at the iSchool, University of Sheffield since 2002. He has written two books on enterprise search, and is in the process of writing a book on enterprise search for O’Reilly Publishing. He is the Chairman of the Enterprise Search Europe conference.
