Enterprise search has gone through many changes over the years, but the crucial problem remains unsolved. How do you find the one key document you're looking for?
On the web where there are so many results, it's easier to find one that matches what you're looking for. In the enterprise, there may be only a few good results and that makes enterprise search all the more difficult.
This webinar will explore the current state of enterprise search, how far it has come in terms of findability, and how far it needs to go.
