Editor's Notes

  • END USER level 200
  • Too much information
    64.000 words of new information / day  a book / day

    Organizations with HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of documents!
  • Don’t know where to search what you need
  • Global organization
    Offices on four continents
    No proper cross-office / cross-department communication
  • Data centers on four continent
    200M+ documents
    Dozens of CMS applications
    No cross-application platform
    Duplicated content

  • Search metaphor broken

    Maybe that’s not what we should be focused on… setup for findability
  • FINDABILITY is what we should be focused on. Search is just a piece of that.
    We’ve had navigation for a long time (though many of us never got it right).
    We’ve been focused on search
    Search is dependent upon accessibility of the content (permissions, technology [format & container & connectors to content]) & information architecture (which again, many of us never got right)
    The user experience of search has gotten better
    Some search results take into account user interactions with content (e.g. clicks) but they are accounting for other users’ behaviors related to a search query, not my behaviors or preferences.

    What’s been missing is the user himself or herself. An understanding of the user—their persona—to help determine what the user might be trying to find or should find.
  • Delve demo
  • On-prem vs. cloud components
  • Don’t get scared
    Complex, challenging but beautiful
  • Metadata Everywhere
    Metadata Inventory:
    Common metadata (title, author, etc.)
    Custom metadata for each content type
    Content audit
    Stakeholders & Key users

    Existing metadata and needed metadata
    Manual
    Auto-tagging


  • DEMO: aghy
  • Think of Search & findability when you create/upload content
    Metadata!!!
  • ‘I want Google-like Search in my Enterprise’
    ‘I want it just work.’
    ‘I want to be able to find everything.’

    These are NOT requirements. These are dreams.
  • Office Graph & Delve integration
    Unified Access
    Unified Hybrid Search
