It’s no secret that the Combined Knowledge SharePoint Conferences are the among the biggest and best independent SharePoint conferences, which makes me particularly pleased and proud to be a speaker again at this year’s International SharePoint Conference 2012.
In a twist to the conventional SharePoint Conference, this year’s event includes never done before solution tracks from inception to deployment/delivery, for IT Pros, Developers, Information Workers, End Users and Business Decision Makers.
I’m speaking in the Case Study track about “Delivering a Search-Driven User Experience with SharePoint and FAST”:
Do you always know exactly what you are looking for? The traditional Search Engine model requires known and accurate keywords to return meaningful content. This session will cover best use of FAST technology including pipeline extensibility, lemmatisation, fuzzy logic and synonyms which can be combined with SharePoint to break that model and provide a compelling Search-Driven User Experience. An in-depth case study with lessons learned will also be presented including a live demo, in which everything ever recorded by the Government numbering tens of thousands of documents in a variety of unstructured, difficult and lengthy formats is successfully parsed and indexed to deliver a public-facing SharePoint site driven by FAST Search for a great User Experience.
It’s on Wednesday 25th April 15:00 – 16:00 – hope to see you there and maybe for a SharePint after!
