Date: May 15-16, 2017
Venue: Avanade Innovation Center, 155 Avenue of the Americas, 6th floor, New York, NY
The most common question I get about my upcoming workshop, SharePoint 2016 and Office 365 Search in Practice, is why I’ve decided to choose a two-day format.
I know it could be one day. Also, it could be three days, or even up to five.
I am happy and super excited to announce Search Explained Roadshow 2017! The first stop is Amsterdam, Netherlands with a 2-day workshop SharePoint 2016 and Office 365 Search in Practice.
Search and findability have evolved over the past several years into a new form. Search is no longer simply about “Search”. While Information Overload is the new reality of our lives, findability of relevant content gets more and more critical. The “old school” Search Center experience is outdated – we need something different, something better, something that is more efficient, more user friendly and more helpful.
In this two-day workshop, I will introduce proven steps and best practices, as well as common mistakes to avoid, demonstrated by live demos and exercises. The training provides you the guidance and action plan to take if you want to succeed with Search in your organization.

In the second part of the Search Terminology series, let me explain some very common, widely used expressions: Web Search, Enterprise Search, Real Time Search and Semantic Search.

Just a few weeks ago, we announced our new e-book on SharePoint 2016 Search.
While we work on the last polishes on the book before its public release on June 15, 2016, it’s time for providing some updates on our other exciting projects as well.
While I was on maternity leave in the past few months and could not commit to any customer project, I was continuously working behind the scenes. I wanted to get back with something new, something very exciting. I wanted to create something that provides the best value for existing customers as well as new acquaintances.

I am honored to do a FREE webinar with Content Panda’s Co-Founder and CEO, Simeon Cathey on Thursday, April 21, 2016:
Many organizations find that the search application on their intranet, or even a more comprehensive enterprise search, is not providing the expected benefits. Finding a solution to the problem is not easy as there are so many variables. Is the search engine unsuitable for the task, are expectations too high, or is the way that the search engine has been implemented not best practice?
Martin White, Managing Director of Intranet Focus Ltd, will held a workshop on 6th April, 2016 in London, UK. The objective of this workshop is to help delegates analyse the nature of the problem that they are facing, and then to provide a range of solutions for consideration.
