Discovery for SharePoint – Extending SharePoint Taxonomy
There are just some things you can’t achieve with taxonomies once they migrate to SharePoint Term Store: no real poly-hierarchy, no synonyms, no non-hierarchical relationships, and the UI is awful – just to name a few. These restrictions within SharePoint prevent the richness of thesauri and the expression of non-hierarchical relationships.
Now, a breakthrough solution, Discovery for SharePoint has been developed through a joint venture effort between Synaptica and Search Explained. In this free webinar, Agnes Molnar and Jim Sweeney will review common pain points experienced with SharePoint taxonomy implementations. Agnes and Jim will also demonstrate innovative user experiences that transcend these pain points to deliver a taxonomy-rich search, browse and tagging experience within SharePoint. Finally, Agnes Molnar and Jim Sweeney will present a case study of a custom-built UI which can add taxonomy management features such as related terms and polyhierarchy to the native SharePoint Term Store.
Microsoft Search in Office 365 – What’s New? What’s Coming?
Microsoft Search, the most powerful search engine in Microsoft’s history ever, is here. For every organization in Office 365, it’s becoming an organic piece of our everyday work. Therefore Search has to be part of the company’s business strategy and roadmap, to maximize its long-term business value and benefits.
During this webinar, Agnes demonstrates how Microsoft Search works today and explains what you can expect in the future. She also demonstrates what options we have today to customize the “modern” search experience.
“Quick Win” Features vs. Enterprise Search Strategy – THE DEBATE
Many organizations want to have “quick win” in search: they want to “implement changes or enhancements that require minimal effort to drive business value associated with Search in the short term”. On the other hand, Search has to be the part of the company’s business strategy and roadmap, to maximize its long term business value and benefits.
How to manage Search in a company? What to choose: “quick win” features or long term strategy? Is it possible to choose both? – If yes, how?
